The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise is pleased and excited to have chosen the following five organizations to be the recipients of proceeds from our 2019 Wine & Food Tasting fundraiser. Our selection is based on their involvement in our community, their alignment with the Rotary areas of focus, and their willingness to participate and support our event:
1) Barnabas Center - raising money to go towards repaying the loan of their 14' box truck used to pick-up and deliver donated food items for the food pantry and for mobile food distribution in Nassau County, FL.
2) Nassau Habitat for Humanity of Fernandina Beach - raising money towards the purchase of a building lot to provide safe, affordable housing for low income residents.
3) Big Brothers Big Sisters - raising money toward paid internships and scholarship opportunities for participating youth in Nassau County.
4) Communities in Schools - raising money for recognition awards known as STAR (Students That Are Rising) for improving students not otherwise recognized.
5) Friends of Fernandina Aviation - raising money for two flight training scholarships for high school students, with the potential of a third scholarship if additional funds are raised.
The 2019 Wine & Food Festival promises to be another huge and rewarding event. It requires teamwork and effort from everyone in the club.
As in the past we are looking forward to another great signature event in 2019.
