Service projects funded:

All proceeds from the event will go to help fund the many Nevada City Rotary community service initiatives as a Club and in partnership with other organizations such as Food Bank of Nevada County, Bright Futures for Youth, and other agencies.
The club especially sponsors local youth programs such as youth leadership camps, academic scholarships at Sierra College and the Global Scholar grant, high school music and speech competitions and Girls Who Code -- an after school program that encourages and trains middle school girls for careers in technology. We are proud to sponsor the Rotary Interact Club at the Sierra Academy of Expeditionary Learning, Nevada City, and their community projects.
Rotary members also fly to Mexico’s rural Southern Baja to perform health screening on local students and adults.
