Soroptimist St. Paddy’s Day Extravaganza & benefit dinner

Look for the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow, as Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor hosts its 16th annual St. Patrick’s Day Extravaganza, March 15 at the Mullis Center.

The group’s largest fundraiser of the year, the St. Paddy’s Day Extravaganza supports the work Soroptimists do to improve the lives of local women and girls.

Festivities begin at 5 p.m. and include an auction of irresistible desserts, a bonny live auction and the ever-popular basket raffles. Dinner, served at 6 p.m., is a traditional corned beef and cabbage feast, or vegetarian pasta entrée, provided by Vinny’s Ristorante. Irish songs by the Island Chordsmen Plus will entertain the crowd.

Topping the evening will be a drawing for a week at an ocean-front Kaua`i condo. Transportation to and from Sea-Tac will be provided by Classic Cab and Bellair Shuttle. Only one hundred $50 tickets will be sold, making the odds of winning most excellent. Tickets can be purchased at Kings Market and the Marketplace, along with those for a raffle for gift baskets.

Extravaganza tickets are $30 for adults, $15 for children 10 and under. Available at The Toy Box, Spa d’Bune, or from any Soroptimist. Take-out dinners are available for $12.

An all-volunteer service club, Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor donated more than $45,000 to projects for women and children and community events in its current disbursement cycle. Proceeds from the Extravaganza help make those donations possible. For more, visit
