Apart from the Clubs annual Golf classic in the K Club every May, we also have many social outings which sometimes also act as fundraisers for charities. In 1996, President Yvonne Malone held an Auction in the K Club which raised funds for the St. Vincent de Paul. In 1996 President Maura Carroll held a lunch for other Soroptimist Clubs and guests in aid of the Adi Roche Fund for Children of Chernobyl. In 1997 President Breda Smith held a Percy French Concert in the K Club in aid of the National Project 'Promotion of the Arts'. In 1998 President Aine Brady held a Concert in aid of the Northern Ireland Children's Enterprise and in 1999 President Kitty Manzor held a concert in Straffan Hall in aid of it's restoration. In 2000 the club held a party in member Dianne Coleman's house to fund the Carers and Meals on Wheels. We also have had outings to the Dail, Aras an Uactairain, Collins Barracks Museum and the National Gallery, Farmleigh, among others and we have a Christmas dinner every year.
