Soroptimist in St. Helena

Since its establishment in 1954, the St. Helena chapter has carried on the Soroptimist tradition of helping women and girls achieve their goals. Through its annual crab feed, now in its 39th year, the club has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for its local scholarship and educational grant programs. Under the auspices of Soroptimist International’s “Dream Program,” the club gifted nearly $25,000 to deserving youth and women throughout the Napa Valley during its 2014/2015 calendar year.
