What is QuarterMania?

QuarterMania is a fun event to help Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland and Soroptimist International of Oceanside-Carlsbad raise funds for Soroptimists’ signature programs, Live Your Dream and Dream It, Be It, improving the lives of women and girls through social and economic empowerment.

How does it work?

A variety of Vendors participate by donating items to be auctioned. These items include women’s fashion accessories, jewelry, health/beauty products, and gift certificates to your favorite places to go and things to do.

Players will be asked to bid up to 3 quarters based on the retail value of the item. If you are interested in the item, you will place your bid and then raise up your paddle. A number will be randomly drawn, if the number matches a raised paddle, it is the lucky winner. If no one’s number is called, then another number is drawn until there is a winner.

Sylvia Becker-Hill to Speak at January Program Meeting

Sylvia Becker-Hill to Speak at January Program Meeting

By Assly Sayyar, SI Vista NCI President 2019-2020


Our program speaker in January (a lunch meeting at Wildwood Crossing)  is tentatively scheduled to be industry expert in corporate leadership, international speaker and author Sylvia Becker-Hill. She was originally scheduled to speak in September but  a death in her family forced her to reschedule

Sylvia has worked for over 20 years in business as a corporate change agent, leadership trainer and c-suite executive coach with Fortune 500 clients around the world. She is also the creator of the Becker-Hill Women’s Empowerment School, a real world and online school that helps women unlearn the patriarchal “Super Woman” rules that have been strangling our true success and show us how to master all areas of our lives by simply being–women.

Sylvia will be speaking to us on how to grow our membership by helping us overcome our own resistance when we have trouble meeting new people and making new connections.

 Meeting Location and Time: Wildwood Crossing, 116 Civic Center Drive, Vista, 12 noon.
