A Chocolate Affair

Are you looking for a way to impact and support vulnerable women and girls in our community? Your participation in our 24th annual A Chocolate Affair will do just that! Soroptimist International of Placerville is thrilled to announce that A Chocolate Affair is back with a completely new look!  Join us on Saturday, February 12, 2022, for exhilarating activities including wine pairings; raffle prizes galore; giant romance-themed mystery raffle boxes; photo area with props; wine drawings; and a spectacular live auction. Not to mention the tastings of local chocolates, food and wine!   We hope you can join us in this community tradition that provides funding to directly support Soroptimist programs.

Through local partnerships and Soroptimist signature programs, your Soroptimist Club annually:

  • Awards Live Your Dream grants to women heads of household pursuing education
  • Grants six high school scholarships
  • Holds on-campus mentoring programs for local high school students 
  • Funds an average of twenty $500 emergency expense grants, through our Helping Hands program 
  • Partners with a local expert to educate middle school students about modern day human trafficking
  • Sends a local middle school girl to Tech Trek summer camp
  • Supports downtown and local fundraising events with volunteer “SoroptiPOWER”

In addition, Soroptimist International is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our founding. For 100 years, Soroptimists around the world have committed to ensuring that women and girls have access to education and the materials they need in order to succeed. As an organization, we have an ambitious goal of collectively serving a half a million girls before July, 2022.  We are well on our way and hope you will join us with your support. The worldwide mission of Soroptimist is simple:  Empower Women and Girls to pursue their dreams.  We believe If you Dream it, You can Be it!

All of these activities are directly possible due to our community fundraising efforts.
