by Sheraton LAX.
Soroptimist International of Manhattan Beach is a community service organization
for women working in (or retired from) business, government, education and the professions.
Founded in 1953 and celebrating almost 60 years, the Manhattan Beach club is part
of the largest classified service organization for executive and professional women
in the world, with 95,000 members in 120 countries. Soroptimist is derived from
the Latin "soro" (sister) and "optima" (best), meaning the Best for Women.
With the support of their generous sponsors and attendees the past 3 years they
raised money for a women’s resource center being built in Rosarito, Mexico, one
in Panama and a rain water project in Kenya. This year they hope to raise even more
money to reach their goal!
