Lake Forest Park Rotary would like to thank all those who made our March 5th fundraising dinner, An Evening in Paradise, a great success. The 170 club members and guests who gathered at the Inglewood Golf Club were clearly ready to have a good time and contribute generously to support the club’s many local and international service activities.

After the bills were paid, the evening raised over $63,000, allowing us to continue making direct grants to a wide variety of programs including community meals, emergency housing, free health care, education enrichment and scholarships, special services to youth and seniors and parks maintenance.

In addition, this is money that can be used to leverage additional funds through partnerships with other clubs, Rotary International and other funding sources.

We are especially grateful for the many businesses and individuals that contributed wonderful and valuable items for the silent and live auctions, our friends from other Rotary Clubs who joined us, and the fine businesses that sponsored the event:

Michael Bugni and Associates, PLLC
Anthony Santorsola, DDS, PS
Beach Community Fitness
Berntson Porter and Company, PLLC
Johnson’s Auto Repair
North City Lumber
Peak Sports and Spine Physical Therapy 
Phoenix Construction
Smoke Emporium Wholesale
