Club & Rotary Happenings...
Since 2001, BHHS Legacy Foundation and Legacy Connection have supported projects, programs, and organizations that improve health and quality of life for those in our community who are most in need. Their funding focuses on four key areas: increasing access to healthcare; improving community health; expanding Arizona’s healthcare workforce; and strengthening the community.
Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary has had the pleasure of working with BHHS Legacy Foundation and Legacy Connection for over ten years.  We have a great working relationship with CEO,Gerald Wissink, who has assisted us numerous times with matching grants for the back to school programs we participate with Vista del Camino.
This year it is our pleasure to provide Scottsdale Community Partners with a check for $12,000, ($5,000 from Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Foundation, $1,000 from Jake Duffy (President of Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary), and the BHHS match of $6,000).  This will assist in financing the July 2019 Scottsdale Back to School that assists over 1,000 Scottsdale children in need.  We are thankful to Gerry and BHHS Legacy Foundation and Legacy Connection in helping us provide this assistance.

Raising Special Kids, who play a big part in Special Day for Special Kids, celebrated their 40th Anniversary.  We had seventeen people from our club or guests attend this great event.  There was a dinner, speakers both present and past from Raising Special Kids who outlined the beginning and struggles of their organization, a wonderful special needs woman who shared her story, and Andrew Norelli, a comedian.  This was a great event and a wonderful chance to share the success of our partner, Raising Special Kids.  
 
 

The Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Club proudly presents its 2019 Charity Golf Tournament. The golf tournament raises funds specifically for the 34th annual Special Day for Special Kids event hosted by the club at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.

Special Day for Special Kids offers children with special needs and their families a carefree day of fun in the sun. The event includes food, games, and attractions, and is 100% free for the almost 3,000 people who attend!

The golf tournament will be held at Ancala Country Club on March 25, 2019. Come join us for a great day of golf, food, and fun while supporting a remarkable event for special needs children!

What a great day for Special Day for Special Kids.  The weather was questionable on Friday, but the sun came out for the 34th Annual Special Day for Special Kids and everyone had a great time.  We had the usual Free lunch, drinks, pop corn, ice cream, games, vendors, climbing wall and bouncy things.  The petting zoo and pony rides were there and of course McCormick Stillman Railroad park was a great partner.  Raising Special Kids got the word out to all special needs families in Arizona.  The Mechanical Society provided FREE train and carousel rides.  Was a great day for the kids to enjoy the event.  SAVE THE DATE:  Saturday, February 22,2020 for the 35th Annual SDSK!
Saturday, February 24, 2018 was a great fun filled day for Special Kids and their families.  Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary has sponsored this event for the last 33 years, which is held at McCormick Stillman Railroad Park to provide a great day for the kids to just be themselves. 
We provide lunch, drinks, ice cream, popcorn, bouncy things, pony rides, petting zoo, train rides, carousel rides, local team mascots and cheerleaders, games with prizes, fire trucks, vendors to assist the families in their needs, and all totally free.
This year with the colder weather, we had about 2200 people in attendance.  As the day grew on, the weather warmed and everyone had a great time.
We support this project with our annual Golf Tournament which will be on Friday, March 23, 2018 at Starfire Golf Course.  If you have interest in participating in our event, please go to www.scottsdalesunriserotaryclub.org and sign up to play golf, sponsor a whole, participate in our 50/50 raffle, or just to make a donation.
We also have a number of great companies who contribute to Special Day for Special Kids with donations of the park areas at McCormick Stillman Railroad Park, The Mechanical Society for the free train and carousel rides, Albertsons for food and drinks, Gatorade for drinks, Frito Lay for chips, Shamrock for ice cream, and Penske trucks.  We also had help with our games from ASU Rotaract, Saguaro Interact, Boy Scout Troup #30 and #649.  We wish to thank them for their continued support.
