2022 Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce  Non-Profit of the Year

On behalf of the Rotary Club of Laguna Sunrise, I am so honored to receive the award of Non-Profit of the Year from the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce and it's members.
 
We are lucky to have a club of 50 members who are committed to Service Above Self and making our community's needs our #1 priority. Our fundraising efforts were amplified in 2021 to make up the shortfalls from the previous year during the pandemic. With the generous support of sponsors within the community and participants, we were able to raise funds to continue programs benefiting Foster Youth, teens, seniors and the hungry. Though the honor is amazing, we are People of Action even when no one is looking... It's what we do! Please join us for a meeting to see how you can be a part of our Award Winning Rotary Club of Laguna Sunrise!
 
With great appreciation and thanks to the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce,
 
Denise Darnold Gaydos
