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.
