Who is Santa Rosa Sunrise Rotary?
 
  Santa Rosa Sunrise Rotary is the event organizer, and is comprised of 65 members, from Sonoma County businesses and community leadership, who are committed to helping others while having fun.
 
  Since the club's inception in 1986, our members have raised over $1.5 million for domestic and international projects, non-profits, charities and scholarships.  Over 50% of the club's funding is generated from its annual Chefs dinner.
 
  All but the newest members of the Santa Rosa Sunrise Rotary Club are Paul Harris Fellows, meaning that 95% of the members have donated $1000, or more, to the Rotary Foundation, which is focused on world peace and goodwill through the improvement of health, education, economic development, alleviation of poverty, and access to clean water and sanitation. Rotary International, collaborating with the Gates Foundation, has pledged to eradicate  polio from the planet by 2020.
