Soroptimist (Best for Women) International of Coeur d’Alene, chartered in 1948 as the first civic service group for women, works to better the lives of women and girls in their local community. With an international purpose to enable women and girls to take control of their lives and live their dreams, Coeur d’Alene Soroptimist annually awards two scholarships to our Live Your Dream winners and hosts a Dream It, Be It mentor program for girls 14 to 17. Soroptimist also annually presents their “Women of Distinction” awards to women whose achievements and dedication to community service set them apart. This year Soroptimist celebrates the 40th year of these awards!
J-U-B is proud to be a platinum sponsor of the event. Riannon Zender, Hannah Anderson, Kylie Cutler, and Angie Comstock are all members of Coeur d’Alene’s local Soroptimist Club, and Angie was the MC for this year’s award ceremony and has been the committee chair for 7 years.

“I am excited to celebrate this 40th anniversary and am grateful for the opportunity to chair this event and recognize women in our community while raising funds to support women and girls. The impact this fundraiser has on our Live Your Dream winners cannot be understated.”
Angie Comstock, Committee Chair
“The Women of Distinction Awards is our club’s largest fundraiser and allows us to fulfill our mission of providing women and girls with access to the education and training they need to achieve economic empowerment. Earnings from the event directly fund our Live Your Dream program, which provides scholarships for women in our community seeking higher education that are the primary financial support for their families. A big thank you to J-U-B and the Coeur d’Alene Community Giving Committee for supporting this important and uplifting event!”
