Enjoy a cash bar, appe­tiz­ers, and musi­cal enter­tain­ment start­ing at 5 p.m, while you pre­view the excit­ing silent auc­tion items donat­ed by gen­er­ous area patrons.

Din­ner will be served by our very own lep­rechaun, Bec­ki Day. A tra­di­tion­al Irish buf­fet of corned beef and cab­bage, as well as savory veg­e­tar­i­an options, will be served at 6 pm, fol­lowed by a most deca­dent­ly deli­cious dessert dash and live auc­tion host­ed by Farhad Ghatan.

This pop­u­lar event is the largest annu­al fundrais­er for Sorop­ti­mist. The Extrav­a­gan­za rais­es mon­ey to sup­port the Women’s Emer­gency Fund, edu­ca­tion grants and schol­ar­ships, the Can­cer Treat­ment Trans­porta­tion Fund, plus oth­er com­mu­ni­ty pro­grams such as match­ing dol­lars for WIC recip­i­ents to use at the Farmer’s Market.

A lim­it­ed num­ber of $40 Extrav­a­gan­za tick­ets will be sold for this sell-out event. Pur­chase tick­ets at Spa d’ Bune, the Toy Box, or from any Sorop­ti­mist.

Found­ed in 1996, the Fri­day Har­bor club is part of Sorop­ti­mist Inter­na­tion­al, a glob­al orga­ni­za­tion that works to improve the lives of women and girls through pro­grams lead­ing to social and eco­nom­ic empow­er­ment. Our mem­bers join with almost 160,000 Sorop­ti­mists in about 120 coun­tries and ter­ri­to­ries to con­tribute time and finan­cial sup­port to com­mu­ni­ty-based projects ben­e­fit­ing women and girls.
