Soroptimists set to sparkle with pajamas and pearls

Chilliwack Soroptimist International Club planning fun, ladies only fundraiser to support their initiatives

The Soroptimist Club is celebrating 80 years of history in Chilliwack, with a special Pajamas and Pearls event.

The evening will be held on Oct. 24, at the Coast Hotel, and will include dinner, dancing, a raffle and an interactive vendor area.

As the theme is Pajamas and Pearls, attendees can dress as casual or as fancy as they like, with prizes for table with the best costumes. The Soroptimist International of Chilliwack is a group that benefits ladies and girls, so the tickets to this event are being sold to women only. All the vendors, and companies involved are all owned and managed by women as well. And all 100 guests will receive a goodie bag filed with free goodies from even more female-owned-and-operated local businesses.

Cari Moore, club President, and Heather Rollins, the Governor for Western Canada, will be saying something short and sweet about the local club, and shed more light on what Soroptimist does as an International group.

The vendor area will be filled with local business women offering services for free, included with admission. The list of services include photography, eyelash extensions, makeovers, hair removal, hair styling, and more.

Only 100 tickets will be sold, and they are going fast. Tickets are $80 each or $600 for a table of eight. Tickets are available at Sugar’d Chilliwack (8-45085 Wolfe Road), or from any Soroptimist of Chilliwack member.
