A message from our President
It is my great honor to serve as President and represent the Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Club and its exceptional members. At this moment, our club has been given a special gift of blooming in a way we have never done before as all of us emerge from an interesting time in history. Gratefully, most of us have navigated this global issue and are standing strong together, eager to roll up our sleeves and serve our community.
What inspires me every day about this club is that as we come together in unison. There are beautiful friendships that are formed between community members who are bound by the desire to help make the world a better place.
Our club services the local and international community through a portfolio of high-impact programs. Some of our most notable programs include our annual Teacher Mini Grants program that provides well deserving teachers additional funds to enhance their classrooms. Our Scholarship Program offers monetary stipends for promising local high school seniors. The Holiday Adopt-A-Family program gives holiday gifts to local families in need of assistance. Our Rotarians also raise funds for our local Fire Departments with a neighborhood Pancake Breakfast. We continue to support great programs at local organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of Venice. We sort and distribute food as we partner with Mar Vista Family Center and L.A. Regional Food Banks to families suffering from food insecurities. Our club collaborated with Habitat for Humanity to build several homes in Culver City…great effort and energy goes into these projects and we are enthusiastic participants.
Playa Venice Sunrise Rotary Club has regular meetings each Wednesday for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at Whiskey Reds in Marina Del Rey. We welcome interested people to join us and experience the excitement our club has to offer.
“Fun, Fellowship and Service”
Together We Can Change the World
“Remember always that you have the power to make amazing things happen, that you can leave a lasting (and beautiful) impact on this world, and that we never stop blooming, no matter our age. Use every new day as an opportunity to take that chance you’ve been waiting for, make a difference, do something special” (Maria Shriver)
