Santa Cruz Shakespeare (SCS)

For the eighth year, Club members operated the rental booth during the 50-show 2023 season of the Santa Cruz Shakespeare Festival at the outdoor Audrey Stanley Grove Theater in DeLaveaga Park. The season began July 8 and ended August 27.

At all 50 shows, our club members rented cushions, beach chairs and blankets for those cold nights in The Grove. We welcomed volunteers to help us with this major fund-raiser. In addition to helping us raise funds for Santa Cruz County women and girls, volunteers had the added benefit of being able to see the shows for free.

Night life at Santa Cruz Shakespeare on July 13 when our team got a $50 donation on our first transaction!

Dinner for 6 Raffle Winner wowed by catered gourmet dinner

A Dinner for 6 Raffle is just one way that we at Soroptimist International of Capitola-by-the Sea raise funds to support local area women in reaching their educational goals.

“The event was a catered gourmet dinner for 6 at a private villa; it was a phenomenal event! I mean…I’m virtually without words as to what a wonderful event it was with a delightful setting, phenomenal chef, and host and hostess that…well, I’d of liked to have adopted them all! Very, very special! What a great cause! What a great event!” – winner of the Soroptimist Capitola-by-the-Sea Dinner for 6 Fundraiser.

This year’s Dinner for 6 winner was hosted at the home of one of our members in the Soquel hills on October 21. The guests were blown away by the event and thoroughly enjoyed the setting as well as the fine food and company. The raffle winner gave us the above glowing review. We thank the guests for being so gracious and for their support of the Soroptimist mission.
