17th Annual Live Your Dream Event and Awards Luncheon

Sponsored by Soroptimist International of Downtown Redding

Save the date for the 17th Annual Live Your Dream Event sponsored by Soroptimist International of Downtown Redding.

Join us as we encourage women to not settle for a life by default, but to instead create a life they can love and feel good about! The Live Your Dream event was founded on the belief that everyone has the power to live the life of their dreams if they are willing to see it (visualize), believe it, and work hard to achieve it. Soroptimist International of Downtown Redding has been a proud sponsor of this event for 17 years and have seen women grow as a result of this wonderful opportunity!

Please join us on March 12, 2018 at the Red Lion Inn in Redding, CA for this inspiring event, (best experienced with a friend) and watch lives change! Hear stories of courage and tenacity as young women accept scholarships that will help them further their education.

Thank you for your continued support of Soroptimist International of Downtown Redding and the women of Shasta County!
