What a SUCCESS!   $22,468.64 to Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary!!!
Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary partnered with Raising Special Kids for our second Good Morning Great Cause fundraising breakfast.  Our first breakfast was in 2020 and we had to take a pause until 2022 to hold the event. 
Speakers were Luis Serna and Amy Bockerstette. 
Luis spoke at our first fundraising breakfast; he has attended Special Day for Special Kids and gives a great presentation on his fears of attending his first Special Day and then just falling in love with the event.  He looks forward to it every year.
Amy is the young Down Syndrome golfer who played in the Phoenix Open and hit a great shot from the 16th hole.  Amy sent a very moving video giving us an overview of her journey, including shots from the Phoenix Open.  Surprise to us all when you could hear Amy saying on the video “They Love Me”!
It is such an honor to be able to interact with an organization like Raising Special Kids and help improve lives of those in need.
After the speakers, we asked for donations and held a live auction to raise funds which were shared with Raising Special Kids and Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary.  Our share can only be used to assist special needs kids, the majority of which was used for our 34th Annual Special Day for Special Kids held on March 12, 2022.
