Girls Night Out!

Wow! What a night! Last night, April 26th, we hosted our biggest fundraising event of the year for Soroptimist International of Ramona. The energy and atmosphere was amazing. The evening was such a success with the help of all of our sponsors, the generous donations of our guest, and local businesses and above all our entertainment.

We featured Vicki Barbolak - Comedian and America’s Got Talent Finalist, the Mountain Tribal Gypsies - tribal style belly dance troupe, The Vaudeville Vixens Showgirl Troupe featuring Emeraude LaStarr, Joe Mystic - Magic extraordinaire, Sally Hilton - The Emcee of all Emcee’s, and finally our Stud Muffin Selling Opportunity Drive tickets - Darren Smith! With this killer combination the room was filled with broad smiling faces and uncontrollable laughter.

Ranch Events was decorated to the nines with excellent staff ensuring the event ran smoothly. Lighting was provided by Matt Way. Sound system provided by Ramona Music Center.

We would not have been able to make this event successful without out all of the support and generous donations so thank you everyone for everything and your continued support to Soroptimist International of Ramona as we strive to continue providing further support to our Dream Programs and Scholarships to further the economic empowerment of our young women and girls! It means more then you can imagine.
