Soroptimists to Host Benefit Luncheon

Altadena-Pasadena Soroptimists members are hosting a benefit luncheon at Brookside Country Club on Saturday, March 11, for their second annual Making a Difference benefit.
With a theme of “For the Love of Women,” the event will recognize former state Sen. Carol Liu and former Pasadena Library director and Pasadena Women’s Rally organizer Jan Sanders with Legacy awards. Southern California Women’s Health Conference Founder Lena Kennedy will be honored with a Best for Women award for her leadership in the community, and will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon. Additionally, Door of Hope and the Women’s Room at Friends in Deed will receive monetary awards to honor their work in helping homeless women and families in the San Gabriel Valley.
Vendor booths open at noon, and lunch will be served at 1 p.m. There will also be a raffle and silent auction, as well as an Easter parade of hats and handbags modeled by Business Life Magazine’s Women Achievers of 2016. General seating starts at $55 per person. Tables of 10 — with table signage to recognize the organization, company or group name — is $550.
