President - Gerry Humes
President Gerry is shown above at the far left. Her theme this year is Picture This - a Better World! Our club plans and participates in individual service projects as well as sponsoring many local non-profit organizations in Santa Rosa which benefit women and children. We work with other Soroptimist clubs in our Region to "make a difference for women and girls" here in Sonoma County, in Northern California, and around the world.

Our Soroptimist International of Santa Rosa club members worked hard during the year to raise funds for our various Service Projects and Scholarships. Our main fundraiser is our annual "Evening in Italy" in February, although the actual planning began in the the Fall of 2013.

Tthe pictures above show only a few of the preparation steps on the "day of the event", including dressing the tables, reviewing sponsor tables and auction items setup, and finalizing the decor. Shown next are pictures of the "Event in Progess" - including Cat Svengros from S.A.Y, our Emcee for the evening, John Burgess our Auctioneer, and our Entertainers, mezzo soprano soloist, Sierra-Marie Paige, and the comedy "cabaret duo" Sandy and Richard Riccardi.

Soroptimist International of Santa Rosa offers many services to the community, including student college scholarships, over 4,000 pairs of socks for the 1,200+ teens on the streets in winter, and various hands-on service projects. We also provide support for our room at the YWCA Safe House and for our own Soroptimist House for women who are turning their lives around at this IFSN home.

Each Soroptimist club has its own community service projects, but is also part of a larger international organization reaching around the world. The very first Soroptimist club started in 1921 in Alameda/Oakland and is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, which is 1 of 4 Federations. The Americas Federation (SIA) has more than 1,400 clubs in 19 countries and territories including North and South America, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Taiwan.
