We host a variety of major events each year that ensure thousands of children and young adults with disabilities and city youth in our community have the opportunity to attend programs at the Sunshine Camp every year – we couldn’t do what we do without the support of donors and sponsors of these events. We are well underway in planning our events for the upcoming year, check out our event list below and stop back often for updated information and sign-up links.

Rotary Award

The Rochester Rotary Award is the oldest and most prestigious civic award in Rochester. This year marks the 85th year that Rochester Rotary bestowed the award. Elaine Spaull is this year’s recipient and we will be presenting the award to her on September 20th at the George Eastman House. 

The award recognizes a community member who has made significant contributions to others and to our region and who personifies Rotary International’s “Service Above Self” motto. An honoree must demonstrate exceptional community spirit, touch the lives of many citizens, and serve as a positive role model.
