Flavour of Chocolate 2018 was a resounding success. Through the support of our sponsors, silent auction donors and guests, we all helped to make an impact in women’s lives in our community.
In 4 short years net proceeds have totaled more than $105,000. Funds will primarily support the Westshore Soroptimist three major projects focusing on women and children, and they are:
1) Live Your Dreams – financial grants to further women’s education.
2) Anney’s Closet – 100 women each year access a free store stocked with donations from the community, of household items to set up their new home. Clients are referred to us by 36+ social service agencies in Victoria and come for a personal shopping appointment acquiring household items, furniture, kitchen items, home décor, linens, bedding, small appliances and so much more.
3) Imagining Possibilities Conference for young women aged 15 to 24 – Over 175 young women have attended a full day conference providing workshops, mentoring, training and connection to women in business and trades. It is a very inspiring day where the young women feel they can ‘imagine their future possibilities’ and have the tools to do so.
We hope you check back in the new year to find out the details of next year’s Flavour of Chocolate event.
