Girls of Action & Leadership (GOAL)is a transformational program, teaching life skills with interactive lessons and running games. Developed and taught by Soroptimist International of Kawartha Lakes members, with help from teachers and volunteers from King Albert and Queen Victoria Public Schools in Lindsay, 2016 saw 47 girls in grades 4 to 6 participate in the program.
Each girl was supplied with proper clothes and shoes for the program activities. The 10-week after-school program culminated in a 5k run/walk, and a celebratory party acknowledged their accomplishments.
Funding to support GOAL and other Soroptimist programs, such as the Live Your Dream Education and Training Awards for Women and the RoseMary Reid Positive Influence Awards, comes from the proceeds of the Soroptimist’s signature annual fundraising event, the Snowflake Gala.
The 5th Annual Snowflake Gala is being held on November 3rd, at the Admiral Inn. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., with a delicious dinner, catered by Chef Konstantine. The evening will include the entertainment of World Champion benefit auctioneers, Barb and Krista Richards.
Tickets are only $60.00, and are available in advance only, until October 20th, at Edward Jones, 3 Russell St. East, Lindsay, or through our website, at www.sikawarthalakes.org.
