Soroptimist International of Poway (SIP) and Soroptimist International of North San Diego (SINSD) are joining forces again on the philanthropic event of the season. The annual High Tea lets the community come together – with their fanciest hats – for a fashion show, auctions, social hour, refreshments, and more. This year’s event will be held Sunday, March 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar. SIP’s Paula Ramos and SINSD’s Amanda Grey serve as this year’s co-chairs, and CBS News 8’s Carlo Cecchetto will be Master of Ceremonies. Fashion Forward creator and television personality Leonard Simpson will present the fashion show.

SIP and SINSD’s High Tea benefits a number of programs supporting women and girls, including the clubs’ Transitional Housing Program, which provides apartments for survivors of domestic violence and their children. Find tickets and learn more about High Tea at
