CAPE MAY—The North Atlantic Region of Soroptimist International held its 90th annual Spring Conference this weekend in Cape May. The theme was “Escape to the Cape” and over 200 business and professional women from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Delaware came together to celebrate our common mission to improve the lives of women and girls in our local communities. 
The conference offered workshops exploring issues such as domestic violence and child abuse as well as fundraising ideas and opportunities for networking.
“Live Your Dream” education awards were presented to six young women who overcame hardships in order to pursue their education and make a better life for themselves and their families. In 2017, the North Atlantic Region gave out 55 such awards totaling $77,625. On Sunday, CARA (Coalition Against Rape and Abuse) was presented with the North Atlantic Region’s “Peace Begins at Home” award of $4,100 as well as $1,000 from our local fundraisers. They also received two vanloads of essential supplies from the attendees to benefit their work with local women and families.
Soroptimist International is a global organization that has a chapter of 54 members in Cape May County. For more information or to become a donor or member, visit www.sicmc.com.
