Nominees sought for Ruby Award

Staff Reports

Soroptimist International of Carson City is currently seeking nominations for the Soroptimist Ruby Award: For Women Helping Women, formerly the Making a Difference for Women Award. This program honors women who use their personal or professional influence to improve the lives of other women.

The Ruby Award honors women who are making extraordinary differences in the lives of other women. Examples would be a woman who helps to establish a domestic violence shelter, a woman who starts a mentoring program for at-risk girls, or a woman who lobbies her company to provide on-site child care.

This recognition program begins at the Carson City Soroptimist club level, with a special award luncheon. Our Ruby Award recipient then advances to Sierra Nevada Region level of the Soroptimist organization. One finalist is selected to receive the annual award, a donation to the charitable organization of her choice. The finalist may also receive an invitation to accept her award at Sierra Nevada Region annual conference held in April in Reno.
