Sunrise Rotary donates $5,000 to Centennial Pool fundraiser
–The Paso Robles Sunrise Rotary Club presented Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin and Councilman Steve Gregory a check for $5,000 for the mayor’s fundraiser, “Everyone In The Pool,” set for April 30 at Centennial Pool in Paso Robles.
“This is what service and community are all about,” said Martin. “Local clubs, businesses and organizations are making this happen.”
The City of Paso Robles has decided to spend more than $600,000 to re-open Centennial Pool at Centennial Park on Nicklaus Street and to upgrade the public pool on north Spring Street in time for the summer swim season. They Mayor’s fundraiser is intended to defray those costs. Martin said the goal is to raise $100,000 at the fundraiser.
“These are everyone’s pools,” said Martin, “and together we are going to upgrade and open them for the public. It’s been a priority for the council for more than a year. Now the people of Paso Robles, folks like the members of the Paso Robles Sunrise Rotary Club, are going to help make it happen.”
The event will include gourmet food, musical entertainment plus live and silent auctions. Tickets are $75 or $600 for a table for eight. Event and beverage sponsors include the Paso Robles REC Foundation, J.Lohr Vineyards & Wines, Firestone Walker Brewing Company and Hearst Ranch Winery.
