Make-A-Wish Golf Planning
Kids and families have been supported by Sunrise Rotary with Make-A-Wish (Iowa) for over 20 years.  Our large funraiser is the annual "Wish Upon a Par"  event. In 2020 we lost that event due to the Covid 19 shutdowns. 
Sunrise Rotary planning is underway for the event on May 27.   Join our Zoom meetings on alternate Fridays 12 Noon next on Feb 26.   All Rotarians are welcome. 
You have a list of past golfers and sponsors (from Bruce).  Find your name and contact them soon.
