On Saturday February 10th, Livingston Sunrise Rotary held its annual "Midnight in the Tropics" fundraiser. The sold out event featured tropical décor to transport “beach vacation” attired attendees to a place in the islands. Attendees were entertained by a live band, games, and henna tattoos.  

 

Silent and live auction items that included everything from a police ride along to a package of 450 bottles of locally brewed beer generated excitement and generous donations in the realm of six figures for several important charities:

Rainbow Dreams – Provides clean bedroom items to kids in need

LACASA – Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer training program that serves of children in foster care

The Connection Youth Services – Provides emergency shelter and transitional living opportunities to homeless youth ages 11-21

Livingston Sunrise Rotary Foundation – Offers support youth, family, and other organizations in the local community in Livingston County
