10/16/2010: "Apply For 2011 Ruby Award"
Applications are now available for the Soroptimists' 2011 Ruby Award, which will honor San Juan County women who improve the lives of women and girls. The Soroptimist Ruby Award honors women who have worked to improve the lives of women and girls through their professional and/or volunteer work. Do you know a woman in our community who is making a difference in the lives of other women?
The program enables local Soroptimist clubs and the International Soroptimist organization to thank these women and encourage others to explore ways to assist women and girls.
Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor program is accepting applications from women in San Juan County for this award. Award winners at the club level are then eligible for additional awards at higher levels of the Soroptimist International organization. The finalist receives a $5,000 donation to the charitable organization of her choice.
Women can be nominated by someone else, or can submit their own application. For more information about the Ruby Award and an application form, please contact either Francie Hansen at 378-2731 or Thane Bolger at 317-4838/ firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications may also be downloaded from the Soroptimist website at www.sifri.org (go to “Community Projects” then “Awards and Scholarships”). Applications are due by December 1, 2010.
