As 2015-2016 Playa Venice Rotary President, I want to welcome you to our Club's website. We have an exciting schedule of events this year to make a positive impact in our local and global communities! I look forward to exchanging ideas with our members and community partners as we dedicate ourselves to this year's Rotary International theme of "being a gift to the world."
Playa Venice’s normal Wednesday meeting was canceled in favor of a joint gathering on with the LAX Coastal Area Chamber of Commerce’s Education Committee and local school principals to present this year’s Teacher Mini Grants Awards. one of Playa Venice's signature programs!
Our annual Pancake Breakfast at Fire Station No. 5 was held from 8am to 11am at Fire Station No. 5 in Westchester. This event has been held every summer for the past 13 years to raise funds for the local firefighters. Playa Venice Sunrise runs the event in partnership with the Los Angeles Airport Marriott Hotel who provides all the food as well as the Playa del Rey Moms Club who provide crafts and activities for the kids.
Rotary is very close to eradicating polio worldwide, but it must be eliminated in every country or it will reappear where it has been wiped out. Cases have been reported in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Nigeria. Your tax deductable gift to the Playa Sunrise Foundation will make this happen. You can make a difference! Our mailing address is PO Box 10883 Marina del Rey CA 90295. Thank you and God bless you!
Recognizing the need to help the homeless in Los Angeles, the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Club set up an outing to the downtown Midnight Mission in Skid Row. We cooked and fed the needy as well as collected and brought basic supplies to hand them out to them.
