Sedona News – The Rotary Club of Sedona Village awarded funds to the Sedona Public Library and Project Fill the Need from their September Golf Extravaganza event.
On Thursday, November 17, the Rotary Club of Sedona Village awarded the Sedona Public Library and Project Fill the Need, $2,200 per organization. The funds were raised from the Golf Extravaganza event held on Saturday, September 24, at Oakcreek Country Club.
For the past 3 years, the Rotary Club of Sedona Village has held a golf fundraiser to raise funds for the Charitable Fund of the Rotary Club of Sedona Village. These funds keep the Community Garden, youth services projects, Adopt a Family program, and other service functions moving for the Rotary Club. 20% of the proceeds are also donated to worthy non-profits identified by the Rotary Club. This year, the 20% donation was split between two worthy groups identified by Rotary Club members.
Kathy Wozniak, one of the founders of Project Fill the Need, shared, “because of this generous donation, we can continue to help people right here in the Village of Oak Creek. For just one day in October, for example, we served 142 individuals in need of food.” Wozniak was moved to tears from the donation. Judy Poe, director of the Sedona Public Library, and Peter Wolf, Library board of directors member, shared, “community is what makes things like this happen and we’re proud to be a part of the community and thank you for the donation.”
