Soroptimists plan ‘golfless’ fundraiser
The women of Soroptimist International of Tracy will host their fourth annual Golfless Tournament in Manteca from 1 to 3 p.m. Feb. 26.
Tournament contestants will convene at Chez Shari Restaurant at Manteca Park Golf Course, 305 N. Union Road, but no golfing skills are needed — just the ability to roll dice, according to organizers.
The tournament is the main fundraiser for the local chapter, founded in 1989, which supports Soroptimist International’s mission by giving scholarships to young women and running service projects in San Joaquin County and the wider world.
Tickets are $25.
