Last night Rotary of Sonoma Valley hosted their annual fundraising event – “Applause”. Hanna Boys Center was transformed into a giant themed picnic area. Groups of 8-10 people created themed picnic tables – there were superheroes, Oscar winners, dancers, farmers and much, much more. I must say I loved the themed Table, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with more Audrey Hepburn’s than I could possibly count. The Rotarians raised thousands of dollars over the course of the evening. I was thrilled when nearly $50,000 was raised for SVHS scholarships, SVHS programs and Preschool. As superintendent and as a Rotarian, I could not have been more pleased last night. Thank you to all who participated… you are changing lives.
