Classic Rock Classic!

On March 2, the Rotary “Classic” Rock event brought together music enthusiasts and community advocates for a night of entertainment and philanthropy.

The Rotary Club of Schaumburg-Hoffman Estates Classic chairwoman Gayle Vandenbergh reported the event, not only offered attendees a chance to groove to their favorite tunes but also raised an impressive sum of more than $180,000 for local nonprofit organizations to eradicate community poverty. This is thanks to the Rotary Club’s planning committee, over 350 attendees, additional donors, and sponsors of the event.

One of the highlights of the evening was the initiative delivered by longtime Rotarians and honorary chairs, Loren and Anne Trimble. Loren speaking on behalf of both of them, emphasized the urgent need to address poverty within the community. Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates, with well over 5000 people living in poverty today, faces a significant challenge that requires collective action.
