Tickets are going fast for the biggest holiday party in Manteca - the 33rd annual Manteca Soroptimists Holiday Affair.

The $75 ticket gets the holder and a guest a chance for cash gifts and prizes, plus it allows them to enjoy a complimentary cocktails and hors d’ouevres reception at the Bank of Stockton, 660 N. Main Street on Wednesday, Dec, 12, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The Holiday Affair has been a sell-out virtually every year.

Projects benefiting include Raymus House events, Haven of Peace, Boys and Girls Club, Manteca Mural Society, Manteca Historical Society, Friends of the Library, Women’s Opportunity Award, Making a Difference for Women Award,  Treats for Our Troops, $6,000 yearly scholarships to high school seniors, the Manteca Unified School District’s Teen Crisis Center and many more community projects.

The Teen Crisis Center is the club’s signature project. The club has donated over $285,000 the past 20 years to help the Manteca Unified School District provide counseling services for teens at all schools in the Manteca Unified District.

School officials have credited the teen crisis counselors for substantially reducing the potential for young people to make decisions that could result in negative consequences on their academic performance, future career paths or even their health.

Tickets to the Holiday Affair are available at Tipton’s Stationery & Gifts, 169 W. Yosemite, 823-7644. You may also call Soroptimist members Judy Vasquez at 823-6644, Julie Azevedo at 239-1195 or any other Soroptimist member.
