Sonoma Overnight Support (SOS), which provides shelter and services for Sonoma Valley’s homeless, gave its True Compassion award to the Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood at its May 4 brunch fundraiser.

That day, the club presented a $4,200 check to SOS to support the organization’s Winter Shelter program. At the brunch SOS raised a total of $75,000 for the program. The event was held at Burlingame Hall in Sonoma.

Monies given to SOS by the Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood were from a Fund-Need at the club’s annual Crab in the Cave event held in March.

Do you want to see how Rotary can make a difference in our area? Come to a Rotary Club of Glen Ellen-Kenwood meeting and find out. The club meets the first and third Wednesdays of each month at the Kenwood Depot, 5:30-7 p.m. The club works to support a number of international and local programs.

At each meeting, there is an interesting speaker.
