The Santa Ana/Tustin Club supports women’s issues in a variety of ways.
They support Soroptimist International and Soroptimist International of the Americas (“SIA”) by annually contributing financially to national and global issues that affect women. For example, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, SIA contributed $10,000 to the American Red Cross and $10,000 to the Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
They also honor one outstanding high school senior girl from 13 high schools within the Santa Ana and Tustin Unified School Districts each month at their signature program, the Young Woman of Achievement luncheon.
The Soroptimist International of Santa Ana-Tustin meets monthly, on each third Thursday of the month, at 5:30 pm, at IHOP, located at 1001 E. Seventeenth St., in Santa Ana.
Their projects include:
- Career Beginnings Mentoring Program
