Give Her Wings Awards Evening

give her wings awards night 2024 v2


We hope you can join us for one of our favorite events of the year on Wednesday, April 10th, 2024! 

Join us for an evening of inspiring stories, delicious sweet and savory nibbles and refreshing drinks as we give out scholarships to amazing young girls and women in our community who have faced adversities. Over half of our awards recipients are survivors of domestic violence, trafficking or sexual assault and faced obstacles such as poverty, teen pregnancy and drug and alcohol addiction. These awards may be used  to offset any costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education such as books, childcare, tuition, and transportation.

10+ Awards are given out annually in the following categories:

  • Live your Dream – An award to a woman who is the main financial  provider for her family and is going back to school to further her education.
  • The Give Her Wings – An award to a woman in need who is going back to school to further her education.
  • The Bea Kelly Volunteer – Bursaries are given out to young women in Grade twelve who excel in volunteerism


Every year, Soroptimist distributes more than $2 million in education grants to about 1,500 women all over the world. Soroptimist International of the Tri Cities alone has given out $100,000 in educational grants over the past 15 years.

We are grateful and thankful to our sponsors for supporting this life changing opportunity for women in our community. If you or your company would like to be a sponsor please contact Cindy Paddington at /call 604-323-6823 or Linda Kozina
