‘Unstoppable Women’ honored at fashion show

The San Diego chapter of Soroptimist International, the global volunteer service club for women, presented Unstoppable Women at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina on March 18. This Live Your Dream Awards Luncheon and Fashion Show began with a fun boutique. Music was provided by Stacy Pecore. The crowd enjoyed shopping with a variety of items and products such as jewelry, dresses, handbags, pillows, and art. Everyone adjourned to the Silver Pearl Ballroom for the luncheon where more entertainment was provided by Patrick Henry’s Dance team.

The Emcees for the afternoon were news reporter Rory Devine and TV personality Geni Cavitt. They handed out Live Your Dream Awards which totaled $26,500 in funds. The top winners were Denise Lupercio, Charlotte Reed and Jazzlyn Caretti. Other honorees were Danae K, Christina, Eve V, Jessica Paredes, Jaqueline Castanon Martinez, Drea, and Edwidge Dupard.

The Soroptimists provide education and training that helps these honorees to achieve economic empowerment and live their dreams. Erin Liddell was the Chair for the event and was also an extraordinary auctioneer for the Raise the Paddle portion. Four tickets to Comic-Con was a huge crowd pleaser.

Gretchen Productions produced this theatrical fashion show which added dancing and singing. The latest fashion trends came down the runway for a sensational afternoon of entertainment. Macy’s department store was one of the segments in the fashion show along with many local boutiques. It was very inspiring to see past Live Your Dream Awardees as guest models on the runway. The fashions on the runway reflected the upcoming Easter season with pastel colors and flowers prints. Gingham checked fabrics were worn on the catwalk by both girls and boys who were having a good time showing off. The children stole the hearts of the audience. The finale revealed translucent gowns in a muted palette. Many of the colors were champagne and off white.

The Soroptimist International of San Diego is one of the oldest service clubs. They were founded in 1931, providing access to education and training for career opportunities which empower women and girls. The educational grant that is awarded at this event is only one of many projects they do during the year. One of their programs is maintaining a carpet school in Turkey for impoverished women. In addition they advocate against the human trafficking crisis, refurbished sober living homes, give backpacks and school supplies to young girls through Girls Rising.
