Soroptimist International of Rio Vista sponsors or takes part in several events throughout the year. The following list is somewhat fluid because events can change from year to year.

Attendees enjoy a glamorous national film festival of short films by, for, and about women, door prizes and raffles.
April – Human Trafficking Summit: Education and Awareness
This biennial event includes speakers, short films and discussion to extend awareness of this pervasive problem in society and nearby communities.
May – Academic Awards
The club sponsors this annual event for Rio Vista High School students, recognizing academic achievement and honoring our scholarship award winners.
