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.
