Soroptimist seeking women award winners

Soroptimist of Hood River is hoping to hear from some of the dozens of women who has received its Women’s Opportunity Award in the past 15 to 20 years.

Three awards are given annually to women financial heads of household who have chosen to get more training and education in order to better their families’ future. The cash awards of $500 to $1,000 each can be used for anything the recipient needs to make it a little easier to get her education, such as child care, gas, car repairs, food, or books.
