Our club holds a series of fundraising events for you to become involved with as a member.
Sunshine Camp 100 Year Anniversary
This year the Rochester Rotary Sunshine Camp is celebrating our 100th anniversary of serving those with disabilities in our community. Throughout the year we will be celebrating this milestone through numerous programs, our major fundraising events, and an anniversary celebration this fall at the Camp.
We would not be able to support city youth and those with disabilities if it wasn’t for the incredible generosity of our donors.
