Pyjamas and Pearls is a signature event for Soroptimist International of Central Alberta. We raise funds annually to enable us to award at least one Live Your Dream Award, presented to a woman in our community who is the primary earner in her family and who is enrolled in an educational program to better her career and family life. This award is $2,500.00. We also use these funds to award one Violet Richardson Award to a young lady in our community who is exemplary in volunteering and community involvement. This award is $500.00 to the young lady, and $500.00 goes to the volunteer organization of her choice. Both of these awards are presented at our International Women's Day Luncheon held in March of every year. Other funds are used to hold our annual Mother/Daughter Conference, our Dream it Be it Conference and our newest venture, Purple Light Nights (in partnership with D.R.V.I.C. Domestic Relationship Violence Initiative Committee). Our club also supports and volunteers at events for other volunteer organizations such as The Women's Outreach and The Festival of Trees.
