Rotary Car Show

We plan to resume our normal show April 30, 2022. We hope to see you there.

Although the Pandemic has postponed our primary fundraiser, the community's needs are greatly increasing.

We continue to help support the community by giving to local food drives and Oldsmar Cares Food Pantry, providing youth and adult masks to our local schools, helping the Sheriff's Youth Ranch, Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation, Clearwater Free Clinic, the YMCA, Humane Society and many more.

Giving in 2020

The Rotary Club of East Lake Sunrise in conjunction with the Miller Family Foundation, provide reading benchs, a collection of books and baskets to schools throughout our area.

Many thanks to the Miller Family Foundation to whom this project was made possible.
