Here is a message from our club president, Cindy Freeman:
 
Dear Lobsterfest Supporters:

During this unprecedented time of crisis, I am reaching out to you with gratitude for supporting our previous Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation’s Lobsterfest events. The 33rd Annual Lobsterfest, our one and only fundraiser, was canceled due to the world pandemic. In three-plus decades, the Lobsterfest event has raised over $1.8 million with all net proceeds used to fund local charities and worthy international projects.

To support this effort, the Board of Directors has accepted a challenge from three major donors (all members of the YL Sunrise Rotary Club), to match up to $20,000 if their fellow Club Members, and Lobsterfest supporters can raise the same amount or more in the next few weeks. This campaign runs from July 17 to August 21, 2020. To accomplish this, every member of the Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club has donated toward this campaign! Hoping to surpass this, our goal is to raise $40,000!

As a supporter and/or friend of Yorba Linda Sunrise Rotary Club, would you help us with this challenge by considering a donation to our Foundation?
 
Below is a pledge form, along with the 501(c)3 community organizations and international projects that shared in the net profit from the 2019 Lobsterfest fundraiser which totaled over $89,000. Again, please consider donating so that in turn, we can support many of these charities.

Thank you in advance for your support. The YL Sunrise Rotary Club Foundation is a tax exempt, nonprofit, nonsectarian, nonpolitical, all volunteer, philanthropic organization with its sole mission to carry on charitable work within the local and international communities. All net profits from this campaign go to support our Foundation (Tax ID #721618522).
