Thanks to everyone who helped make our 2015 Adventures & Wine Auction - A Party with a Purpose such a success!
It was held Friday, October 23 once again at the beautiful, historic Miners Foundry in Nevada City
The 2015 Adventures & Wine Auction benefits the Nevada City Rotary Club Youth Programs and Scholarship Fund. The silent and live auctions features art, services, household goods, and unforgettable experiences donated by members of the Nevada City Rotary Club and the local business community.
The difference you make:
The event theme is "Focus on Youth". All proceeds benefit the scholarships and other youth programs sponsored by Nevada City Rotary Club. The Drew Reynolds Scholarship is awarded each year to a young parent attending Sierra College and is renewable for up to four years. Past recipients have gone on to complete undergraduate and graduate degrees. The 2004 recipient completed an MBA; the 2006 recipient has completed a master’s program in statistics at Harvard. Other renewable scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors who are heading on to college or vocational programs.
Each year Nevada City Rotary sponsors incoming high school seniors to a week at Rotary Youth Leadership Camp (RYLA) and eight graders at Rotary Eighth Grade Leadership Experience (REGL). One RYLA student this year wrote “It has been an experience that will make colossal waves in my life instead of tiny ripples.” Two Nevada City participants have faced major physical challenges. Both speak eloquently of gaining insight about themselves and others, “even more healing and growth.”
