Welcome to Soroptimist International of Alliance, NE!
Are you curious about what Soroptimist means?
The name, Soroptimist, means "best for women," and that's what the organization strives to achieve. Soroptimists are women at their best, working to help other women to be their best.
Are you wondering who we are?
Soroptimist is an international organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world. Almost 95,000 Soroptimists in about 120 countries and territories contribute time and financial support to community–based and international projects that benefit women and girls. Locally, we have 18 members who are involved in a variety of local projects. We would love to have you join us!
Are you wondering what we do?
Soroptimist members belong to local clubs, which determine the focus of volunteer work to our communities. Club projects range from renovating domestic violence shelters and providing mammograms to low-income women, to sponsoring self-esteem workshops for teenage girls. In addition, Soroptimists participate in organization-wide programs including the Soroptimist Women's Opportunity Awards, Soroptimist Club Grants for Women and Girls, the Soroptimist Workplace Campaign to End Domestic Violence, the Soroptimist Making a Difference for Women Award, the Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award and Soroptimists STOP Trafficking. Clubs also participate in the Live Your Dream campaign, which encourages all women to live their dreams while helping others to do the same.
Soroptimist International of Alliance club members do some fun stuff throughout the year! In June we have a Picnic in the park and plan for Family Fun Night during Heritage Days in July. In October, we have an absolutely fantabulous Wine Tasting out at the Country Club. There are great wines to be tasted and delectable goodies to be sampled! In November, we have a Chocolate Bar at the Legion during the Craft Show--mmmmmm! (One can never get enough cholcolate!) In December , we have a great Christmas party at the Country Club and even invite our husbands (we call them Soroptomisters!) to join us for the fun!
