who we are
It all started on a Friday night…
Susan (the blonde) and Lyneia (the brunette) were enjoying a dinner out with their husbands when the idea of starting an event coordination company was born. Both gals had each been mulling this idea around in their heads for a while but hadn’t expressed it openly until this Friday night. By the end of the meal, the girls had two investors each promising $1,000 (most likely to shut them up…hehehe), and Socially Significant Events was born. Years later, they haven’t looked back. Together they have planned and executed countless weddings, corporate and social events in the Permian Basin and across the state of Texas.
SoSig Events is more than an event planning company for Susan and Lyneia. It fulfills their passion for organizing, researching, list making and creating. Both gals are native Midlanders (one a proud Midland High Bulldog and the other a mighty Lee Rebel), that got their start in the nonprofit world having worked with organizations to plan St. Ann’s Mardi Gras, Midland Project Graduation, and Church Under the Bridge, not to mention countless in-house dinner and birthday parties, bridal and baby showers. They have 7 sons collectively (Susan has 4 boys and Lyneia has 3), and it’s through their children that they became friends many years ago while managing their small army. Lyneia has been married for 25 years to her husband Mike. When she isn’t planning the next soiree, she can be found at the gym or the lake with friends and family, reading a good book or possibly enjoying her guilty pleasure of Dove Chocolates with red wine. Susan has been married to Tom for 30 years and in her free time you can find her at the gym, on the golf course, or lying beside the pool with a WWII book in hand. When no one is watching, she loves devouring Cheez Its with red wine while watching The Bachelor.
