Selling See’s Candies and holiday boutique items has been a great fundraiser for Soroptimist International of Elk Grove (SIEG).  We hope to see you again next year.  Check back to this page in November/December 2019 for new location information.

 

We have sold candy out of a utility trailer parked at a fruit and vegetable stand in the little town of Sheldon, and then moved to a variety of storefronts in Elk Grove.  The storefronts have ranged in size from a small multiple office space to a very large retail space.

When we were in the small office complex, we had a large variety of boxed candies. Several of our members decorated the store beautifully with personal Christmas decorations. Our customers wanted to purchase the decorations, so every year since then we have added our “holiday boutique” merchandise to the inventory that we sell.

“Soroptimist Fund Raising with See’s Candies” has a well-established reputation in the greater Elk Grove area. Customers not only enjoy our large variety of boxed candies and the beautiful, well-priced holiday boutique items that we sell. They also appreciate the ample parking and no-long-lines-out-the-door that we offer.

Our presence as the purveyor of the See’s Candies & Holiday Boutique has strengthened SIEG’s connection with the community. In addition to selling candy and boutique items, we collect candy for “See’s for Soldiers.” Customers can buy candy or make a monetary contribution to purchase candy at our store, which will be shipped to soldiers serving overseas.

You can also make a donation in our store which benefits all of our local projects.

Members always look forward to mid-November when the entire club begins cleaning, decorating and stocking the store prior to its opening. SIEG members work four-hour shifts in pairs while the store is open. Working at the store is a great way for members to get to know each other better and have fun, and to feel good about contributing to the success of our biggest fundraiser of the year.

The See’s Store and Holiday Boutique is a great time for everyone at SIEG! If you cannot make it to our See’s Store and Holiday Boutique but would still like to support the Soroptimist of Elk Grove, please click here to donate.
