Fun and games to benefit women's scholarships


The Walla Walla Valley Soroptimist club will host a bunco event Thursday as a fundraiser for women’s scholarship programs.

Tickets to the event are $20 and include dinner and a chance to win raffle items.

Dinner and socializing starts at 6 p.m. at Blanchet Hall at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 415 W, Alder St. The dice roll starts at 7 p.m.

Money raised during the evening will be given to local women through Soroptimist’s scholarship programs. The Women’s Opportunity Award assists women who are the primary source of income for their families by giving them resources to help them improve their education, skills and employment prospects. The Ruby Award acknowledges women who work to improve the lives of other women and girls through personal or professional activities. The Violet Richardson Award honors girls who make a difference through volunteer service.
