It’s the Soroptimist International of Sonoma Valley’s Maine event – the group’s annual fundraising lobster sale. Members are now taking orders pick-up at the Atrium Building, 670 W. Napa Street in Sonoma, on Saturday, September 16 from 10 a.m. until 1p.m. The crustaceans will be flown in from Maine that morning. Lobsters weigh about 1.5 pounds, cost $26 each and can be ordered live or cooked. Advance orders are necessary and must be received by September 15.

The Soroptimists have a 50-plus-year history of giving back to the Sonoma Valley community while improving the lives of women and girls. “This is a terrific reason to invite your friends over for a delicious lobster meal and directly impact the lives of women and girls in our community,” said co-chair Juliette Andrews.

To order, call her at 707.338.1874 or Carol Whitson at 707.953 3621.
