 Giving Back: Charity begins at Palm Springs' SunUp

When: Tuesday, January 8, 2013 at 6:45 AM

Where: Rick’s Café (Back Dining Room)
... 1973 North Palm Canyon Drive
Palm Springs, CA 92262

You are invited to join the Sunup Rotary for this special presentation at their weekly meeting.

Dr. Gundry is Director of The International Heart and Lung Institute in Palm Springs, California, and the Founder/Director of The Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara. The mission of his work is to prevent and reverse the chronic diseases of "aging" with diet and nutriceutical interventions, using surgical intervention for heart and vascular disease only as a last resort.

Sunup Rotary is a group of local leaders who work to give back to Palm Springs through events like the Annual Chalk Art Walk which benefits local students, and Bowling for Polio to help provide polio vaccines to nations in need to end polio in our lifetime.

The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.


I would like to once again extend a warm welcome to the Palm Springs Sunup Rotary Club as summer comes to a close and we continue to embrace the Rotary International theme of “Peace through service” as we begin to implement the goals we have set for the coming year.

On October 26th, 2012 we will participate in the District 5330 District Conference with a fabulous hospitality suite planned for the conference theme of Halloween. Our first major fund-raiser of the year, Havana Casino Night, which includes a wine raffle, outdoor cigar bar, dinner and a costume contest will be held on November 3rd, 2012 and there will be a Christmas fund-raiser auction on December 11th, 2012. Be sure to save-the-date for our club Christmas Party on December 13th, 2012.

Fall in Palm Springs brings many of our members and residents back to the valley to enjoy the cooler climate and activities of “the season” and again I would like to welcome you to our club and the opportunities of service we provide to our community, district and world of Rotary. 

“Peace begins with a smile” Mother Teresa and you will certainly receive a warm smile and welcome at our club.

Yours in Rotary Service,

Diane Sampson

Bringing education to rural Mexican area, one school at a time

Called Changing Lives, the program provided students with high school tuition, uniforms, school supplies, and transportation. In addition, Rotary clubs from the United States and Mexico have been investing in the...
