Out and About
2019 marked twenty years for Soroptimist in the TriCities. We're pleased to share a few fun highlights as we embark on our next 20!
And the lucky Westjet tickets winner is…
At our 2019 Give Her Wings Gala, one of our lucky guests won 2 tickets to anywhere Westjet flies. (Our hat ladies tried to be invited, but no such luck!)
So, a doctor, baker & mechanic met at a….
Dream it Be it Conference in 2019, where we had over 50 amazing mentors spend their day with teen girls sharing their career journeys and insights!
2019 is the new 20!
Yes, in May 2019, Soroptimist International of the TriCities turned 20! We celebrated with so many of our community partners and supporters!
Were Selfies Ever Not a Thing?

All Learners Welcome
One of the Soroptimist lunch “n” learn afternoons with the wonderful girls at CABE (Coquitlam Alternate Basic Education) in School District 43.
A Lip Sync Battle for the Ages
TriCities Mayors of the day (Mike Clay, Greg Moore, Richard Stewart) partnered with the “3 Divas” (MLA Selina Robinson, Councillor Diana Dilworth, Polly Krier) in an epic battle.
Just Another Day Coding
Several Soroptimists run Club Diginista in partnership with the Coquitlam Public Library, where girls get to have fun and exercise their creativity while learning coding.
Every year, we sponsor the Bea Kelly Award, where we grant scholarships to grade 12 girls who improve their community through volunteer work.
A Huge Thanks to Art Knapp in PoCo
We are so lucky to partner with Art Knapp, who generously donate clothes, jewellery, and shoes to be shared with the women and girls who attend our programs.
