Soroptimist International of Vacaville’s first-ever “Rocktoberfest,” will showcase the talents of local chefs and musicians in a fun evening of food and entertainment focused at raising funds to empower women and girls.
Award-winning Hank & Hazel’s will provide the sausages and Pure Grain Bakery will have apple strudel and pretzels fit for a beer garden, right in Ulatis Community Center. The fun starts at 5:30 p.m. with a no-host bar serving beer and wine on Saturday, Oct. 22. Dancing will follow dinner to the music of local band Helios.
There will be silent, dessert and live auctions, featuring everything from unique works of art and tasty treats to fine wine and exotic excursions.
The dinner and auction proceeds benefit Soroptimists’ projects, which include scholarships, awards for women and girls working to make the community a better place, according to Soroptimist Co-President Linda Johnson. It also supports S Clubs in local high schools and the Dream Maker, a program that works with at-risk women to build confidence and self-esteem.
“We’re excited to have our fall fundraiser back in person, after the long pandemic,” said Soroptimist Co-President Sharon Marcacci. “Tickets are $55 per person and will sell out, so be sure to purchase in advance.”
