"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” —Rev. Howard Thurman
Soroptimist International - Ashland has a 65-year relationship with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, where we manage the Pillow and Blanket Rental Booth. From June to October, while the festival runs three plays in the outdoors Allen Elizabethan Pavilion, we are there in all kinds of weather, renting pillows and blankets and selling ponchos. This is our major fund raiser. We share half of our net proceeds with OSF and use the other half to fund our many scholarships and projects to benefit the girls and women in Ashland.
