Soroptimist Club to give two awards Feb. 19

Soroptimist International of Baker County will present two awards on Wednesday, Feb. 19 at noon at the Sunridge Restaurant in Baker City.

The Violet Richardson Award goes to Jenna Aldrich, a Powder Valley High School senior.

The award honors young women for volunteer action and celebrates the contributions of women to society.  Aldrich will receive a $250 cash award and will be presented with a $250 check awarded to the Powder Valley Club Volleyball.

She will advance to the Soroptimist District 3 Region level, where she will become eligible for one of 28 $1,000 awards. At that level, an additional $1,000 will be contributed in honor of these winners to their volunteer organizations. One finalist will be chosen from among the 28 winners for an additional award, including a contribution of $2,500 to the finalist’s volunteer organization.

The Ruby Award goes to Amy Micka. The award honors women who, through their professional or personal efforts, are making extraordinary differences in the lives of women and girls. Their work has had a significant impact and also inspires and encourages other women. 

The Northeast Oregon Compassion Center will receive a $200 cash award. 

Chartered in 1940, Soroptimist International of Baker County is part of Soroptimist International of the Americas, an international volunteer organization for business and professional women who work to improve the lives of women and girls, in local communities and throughout the world.

For more information about how Soroptimist International of Baker County improves the lives of women and girls, call club president Kelly Tanzey at 541-519-8800.
