MMM, Introducing Soroptimist Baskets of Care

 

MMM-May 2013

For the past five years Soroptimist International of Homestead has hosted this exciting event as a fundraiser to benefit charitable causes within the Homestead community.  The event was hosted by the SI Homestead Club on Friday, May 17, 2013 from 6:00-10:00 pm at the Woman’s Club in Homestead.

 

Guests purchased tickets for the occasion, which provided them with a martini and a luxurious amenity; a massage or manicure, hence the title “Martinis, Massages, and Manicures”.  The event also included hors d’oeuvres, desserts, music, beautiful raffle baskets made by member Coy Pena, and door prizes, as well as Massage Therapists, Manicurists, DJ, and two ‘Martini Bartenders”.  This year the event drew in 122 guests and 24 club members and a good time was had by everyone present in spite of the rainy weather.

 

MMM May 2013-0023A new project the club has recently begun is called “ Soroptimist Basket of Care”.  This project consists of a Committee who researches a Homestead lady who is ill and needs help and cheering up.  After a selection is made a personalized “Basket of Care” is made by Committee member, Coy Pena.  The Committee received information on three (3) Homestead ladies who are struggling with cancer and honored them Friday evening at the Martinis’, Massages, and Manicures event.  They honored Beth Carrier, Brenda Tyre, and Geri Davis with beautiful baskets.  They were very deserving of these gifts and were overwhelmed.  The Soroptimist International of Homestead members wish them all a successful recovery.

2012-2014 Board Installed

A Soroptimist of Homestead Installation of Officers was held at the Capri Restaurant in the Gallery Room on June 21, 2012.  Incoming Officers are President Adrienne Griffitts, Vice President Danielle Zimmerman, Recording Secretary Tammy Triana, Treasurer Laurie Conner, Corresponding Secretary Alicia Norwood, Director Renee Dunn (Past President), and Director Denise Held.  The new Board will serve a two (2) year term 2012-2014.

President Adrienne’s theme was “rainbows, finding our pot of gold at the end of the rainbow”.  In her acceptance speech she spoke about Betsy Shears, who had been a long time Soroptimist member as well as a business owner in Homestead before her untimely death.  She talked about the influence that Betsy had had on her life and also on her becoming a member of Soroptimist.  Adrienne said “while I take this new position with much excitement, and really high hopes, I know that I will always keep a watchful eye to the sky, thinking of Betsy, looking for that rainbow.  But the brightest of rainbows only shines for those who take the time to look for it.”

Martini’s, Massages & Manicures 2012

On April 13, 2012, we had our Martinis, Massage & Manicure Night! It was our biggest and best one yet. We were a little worried the rain would ruin the night, but luckily it finally stopped and everyone had a great time! All of the proceeds go to our local charitable causes.

Thank you to everyone that came out to support us! We can’t wait for our next one!
