Soroptimist International of Corona is pleased to announce our 17th Annual Chocolate, Wine, and Jazz Festival to be held Friday evening October 4th, 2019. We’re excited to host this event in a new location this year, the Backyard at SilverLakes, in Norco. Guests will enjoy live music & dancing, a silent auction, raffles, beer and wine tastings, and appetizer and dessert samplings from local eateries.
The funds raised at this event support local projects that help improve the lives of women and girls through education. Last year, due to the success of Chocolate, Wine & Jazz, Soroptimist of Corona was able to award over $20,000 in scholarships to CNUSD high schools. This event also funds Dreams & Decisions, an annual workshop for local intermediate school girls with an emphasis on building self-esteem, mentoring, & education to help prevent teen pregnancy. Another project funded by this event is the Live Your Dream Award, where Soroptimist of Corona provides scholarships and mentoring to adult head-of-household women returning to school. Soroptimist of Corona also supports local and global efforts to fight human trafficking, through local awareness workshops and financial support.
