The North County community came together for a vital cause at the 2018 Soroptimist High Tea. The annual event is a joint effort presented by Soroptimist International Poway and Soroptimist International North San Diego. This year’s sellout High Tea drew approximately 425 guests in their best hats to the Fairmont Grand Del Mar for an afternoon of socializing, auctions, and a high-fashion runway show. Television personality Leonard Simpson presented the fashion show, and CBS8 news anchor Carlo Cecchetto served as master of ceremonies. The event grossed over $100,000 to support the clubs’ Transitional Housing Program, which provides safe housing for survivors of domestic violence and their children. Learn more at and
