Fun and festivities of Trivia Night
Last year’s Trivia Night fundraiser provided us an opportunity to give back in a variety of ways. Congratulations to the local groups that were honored. South Bay Sustainable Communities and Just in Time for Foster Youth each received checks for $5000.
This SBSC donation will assist them in getting closer to their goal of building a more sustainable South Bay through education and community engagement in environmental conservation, composting, and urban farming programs. The support to Just in Time will help foster youth in transition to achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.
Two $4500 donations were given to support the San Diego Therapeutic Horsemanship, which works with military veterans and children with special needs, and to the San Diego Rescue Mission. This donation will assist SDRM with providing meals, shelter, clothing and hygiene items to those without a place to call home.
Two $2500 donations were also given to the Chula Vista Animal Care Facility and Loving You Through It. Funds donated to the CVACF will help provide vaccinations to shelter dogs and cats. Loving You Through It funds will help provide complimentary services to women undergoing chemotherapy during cancer treatments.
The final contribution was donated to the Chula Vista location of the San Diego Blood Bank. Chula Vista Sunrise Rotary wanted the financial support to remain in their local community.
Globally, we have been involved in many grants that have brought disaster relief to many. Our current Rotary International Global Grant is “Train for Change,” assisting teachers in Honduras.
Our Trivia Night fundraiser gives us the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many. Thank you for your participation.
