Soroptimist International of Kansas City presents
A fun fundraiser to help Kansas City area women overcome financial adversity through supportive education and skills-training grants.
- A bargain shopper’s paradise offering hundreds of new and gently used purses (many designer brands) and other fashion accessories!
- Grab your friends for a fun afternoon of shopping, raffles, silent auctions and light refreshments.
- The event is free to the public and all proceeds go towards local Soroptimist Live Your Dream Awards that aid Kansas City area women in need of financial assistance to support themselves and their families and improve their prospects for a brighter future.
The Soroptimist International Live Your Dream Education & Training Awards are all about helping women who have faced obstacles on the path to living their dreams. Since 1972, the award has provided tens of thousands of women with cash grants to help them achieve their educational and career goals. Awards are first presented at the local Soroptimist chapter level, with opportunity for additional regional, national and international awards. Ultimately, a Live Your Dream Awards finalist has the potential to receive up to $16,000 to help offset tuition costs, purchase books, get transportation, or find reliable childcare so she can worry less about how to pay her bills and focus on reaching her dreams.
