Boots, Booze, & Boogie!

The past couple of years have been pretty difficult times for our Club (as well as the world in general). We've had to cancel our annual fundraiser event at Hurst Ranch which provided a great party for the community while raising cash needed for our philanthropic projects. But now, with the prospect of things opening up and along with the 40th anniversary of our founding, we did a restart of the event. It was held at the Covina Woman's Club on May 14th, downsized just a bit, but it kept all the great things that you've come to expect from our Club.

The theme was "Boots, Booze & Boogie" and it was our 28th major annual fundraiser. We still had the live auction and opportunity raffles along with the legendary Wine Toss and Granny's Trading Post, along with a chance to win $1000 cash. The bar provided "Tequila Sunrise Rotary" signature cocktails along with the usual free beer & wine to go along with our Texas BBQ & Tex Mex themed buffets. The crowd also enjoyed the country and bluegrass stylings of the Ash Street Ramblers. The private "VIP Experience" tables got premium front row service and personal attention. They, along with regular ticket owners, provided the donations which will benefit our Operation Santa Clothes project and the CSR Legacy Foundation. For more information on becoming next year's sponsor or a VIP Experience table, call Robert Avila at 626-674-6203.

Free Reading Program for Kids!

 

We are a proud sponsor of a new, online FREE Reading program for kids in K-6. The program is compatible with most Internet browsers used by desktop and tablet computers. Anyone can easily sign up for the program free through our website. Just click on the logo above to get to the login page for the program.

The goal is to enhance the literacy skills of English language learners of all grade school ages. The FREE reading program will help improve English reading comprehension, grammar, vocabulary and much more! Currently there are over 110,000 kids enrolled! If you have or know children of grade school age, check out the program - we believe it can really help improve literacy in our youth.

Operation Santa Clothes

Our flagship Operation Santa Clothes program has clothed over 35,000 kids with new clothes! We have also been able to provide over $50,000 in scholarships in seven high schools. OSC began in 1994 serving 73 children from one Covina school. The project focuses not only on provided clothing, but giving self esteem, character development, and a sense of caring to these kids. You can help with a tax deductible donation here. See our Santa Clothes page to make a donation or for more information.
