THIS PARTY HAS A PURPOSE

The money raised by this event helps fund the Redlands Rotary Club Foundation, and the Foundation supports the local, national, and international mission of Rotary — “Service Above Self.”

Since 1992, the Rotary Club of Redlands Foundation has distributed more than $1,200,000.00 to the benefit of our neighbors and community. By attending our Red Wine & Blues fundraiser, and purchasing our live and silent auction items, you become our partners in providing sustenance to our neighbors around the corner and around the world.

The Rotary Club of Redlands continues to devote enormous energies and resources to service.
