The Respecting Our Daughters Fundraising Gala takes place Sunday in Surrey.

An evening of respect

Soroptimists holding fundraising gala on March 8 in Surrey.

Soroptimist International of Surrey/Delta is hosting the Respecting Our Daughters Fundraising Gala on March 8 at 5:30 p.m. at the Royal King Palace, 8158 128 St.

The event was the brainchild of Mary Pichette, the executive director of Servants Anonymous Society of Surrey and Aneeta Jandu, an young soroptimist who was concerned with the lack of respect for females in society.

The event, hosted by Jandu, will feature a fashion show by Armaan and Zairas Couture.

Music will be provided by X Fusion Roadshows’ DJ B.I.G. and D.J. Havoc.

This year, Soroptimists in Surrey are celebrating 20 years of service to the community. They have provided more than $600,000 in scholarships to women and girls in Surrey and Delta in those two decades.

Tickets are $45 each or three for $100.

Visit www.soroptimistsurrey-delta.org, email aneeta_jandu@hotmail.com or call 778-926-5065.
