SOROPTIMIST International NMI will hold its annual “Live Your Dream” cocktail event Saturday, Oct. 16, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Marianas Lighthouse Restaurant on Navy Hill.

The organization will announce its 2021 “Live Your Dream” awardee: someone who is the head of household, the main financial support of the household, a full-time undergraduate student at either a college, university, or trade school, and needs financial assistance.

The award provides monetary assistance up to $3,000.

Last year’s awardee was Christine Fereti, a mother of three children who had lost her job amid the Covid-19 pandemic. She was taking online classes at Northern Marianas College for a nursing degree, while also helping her children adapt to online education.

Last year’s theme was “Rising Above the Storm,” while this year’s theme is “Dancing in the Rain.”

Tickets to this year’s “Live Your Dream” award cocktail event are $75 per person.

Event sponsors include Marianas Eye Institute, The Shack, Triple J Payless Superfresh & Truckload Store, Bank of Saipan, Hyatt Regency Saipan, Latte Built Fitness, Paradise Dental Center, Natural Nail Spa, Takagi & Associates, Inc., and Gold’s Gym.
