Benefit dinner for RotaCare clinic

Local Rotary Clubs are hosting a fundraising dinner and auction to benefit the RotaCare Free Clinic from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at the historic Del Monte Building, 100 S. Murphy Ave. in Sunnyvale.

The RotaCare Clinics provide medical care for needy, uninsured residents at 11 free health clinics in the Bay Area. Last year, 26,000 people received services at RotaCare. Medical professionals, many of whom are Rotarians, volunteer their services at the RotaCare Clinic. The clinic focuses on serving children who would not otherwise have medical care.

Since 2004, five Rotary Clubs have joined forces to organize the Asante fundraiser for RotaCare. Last year, the Rotary Clubs raised $25,000 for the Mountain View RotaCare Clinic based in the Camino Medical Group clinic in the El Camino YMCA on Grant Road.

Charlie Wesser, one of the Rotarian organizers, says Rotary Club members are working hard to surpass last year's figure. All proceeds go toward providing health care to local working poor at the Mountain View clinic.

Members from the Rotary Clubs of Sunnyvale, Los Altos, Mountain View, Cupertino, Sunnyvale and Palo Alto University will be attending the event.

The fundraiser includes a raffle, silent auction and live auction for tickets to concerts, sporting events, and vacation-home getaways.

Tickets for the evening, which includes dinner and wine, cost $50. To purchase, contact Charlie Wasser at Charlie@wassergraphics.com or 408-366-2420 or Tracie Murray at tmurray650@yahoo.com or 408-621-0609.
