Club & Rotary Happenings...
The Scottsdale Sunrise Vision Foundation made two donations of $10,000 each to Arizona Industries for the Blind and Foundation for Blind Children.  
Chris LaFollette and David Steinmetz attended our ZOOM meeting for Arizona Industries for the Blind and accepted our donation. Mark Ashton accepted the donation for Foundation for Blind Children. 
It has been our pleasure working with these organizations over the past years and we were thankful we could assists them with this donation.
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.
It is our pleasure to provide Scottsdale Community Partners with a check for $10,000, ($5,000 from Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Foundation, and the BHHS match of $6,000).  This will assist in financing the July 2020 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. 
As a result of Covid-19, the distribution will be handled as a drive through and Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary will not be able to physically attend the event. Our best wishes to all the kids and Vista del Camino.
Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary members participated in assisting families in need of food due to the COVID-19 epidemic.   They worked with, Adam Allison who is the chef owner at Handlebar Diner in Mesa and assisted in obtaining food at a discounted price.  The son in law, of Terry Kutzbach, is an Principal at Keller Elementary School.  He and his teachers identified 17 families with 71 kids whose meal program has been reduced to receiving breakfast and lunches three times a week from the District.  We reached out, raised $1,300+,  and  placed an order with Adam  and his suppliers to help us purchase food worth over $3,000.  Another party heard what we were doing and donated 70 cases of frozen food valued in excess of $15,000. Teachers and four Rotarian's packaged and distributed the food to the families.  The thirty-five remaining cases of frozen food were donated to a food bank. 
Luis Serna was the guest speaker at the January 16, 2020 fund raising breakfast that Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary held with Raising Special Kids.  Luis touched our hearts with his speech and made us realize why we do what we to to make Special Day for Special Kids part of these kids lives.  What a successful event, we split the proceed with Raising Special Kids and we each received $8,799.65.  Not bad for our first year.
