Bags to Benefit


Our third annual ‘Bags to Benefit’ fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday, November 23rd, 2019 at Embassy Suites.

Wonder where the idea came from? Well, here’s a little history. We got the idea from the Santa Clara of Silicon Valley Club when a couple of us attended a Sierra Pacific Regional Conference fundraising22135 (1) workshop. We discussed the idea with our club and decided we would try it because it sounded like something fun for everyone and a little different! Of course, doing anything for the first time is a bit of a challenge, but we did it!

Here’s what you will find at our ‘Bags to Benefit’ event. Bags (purses, tote bags, backpacks) that are new, like new or very gently used and filled with mostly consumables or experiences. Some are silent auction items that you bid on and others are raffle items that you buy tickets for. ALL PROCEEDS are used to fund our local programs.

Tickets are $50.00 per person and available through or available from any Soroptimist International San Luis Obispo club member.
