Rotary Clubs of Orange Receive Library Legacy Award

The Rotary Clubs of Orange, Orange North and Orange Sunrise were honored with the first Organizational Legacy Award at the Orange Public Library Foundation “Legacy Gala” on Saturday, April 24th.

The gala kicked off the Library Legacy Campaign, to obtain major underwriting gifts and establish endowments for future support of the library collection and programs.

The three Rotary Clubs were recognized for their support and fundraising during the library’s reconstruction and renovation, completed in April of 2007.  The clubs raised nearly $60,000 for dedication of the Rotary Conference Room, selling raffle tickets for a Ford Mustang donated by Villa Ford.  The winning ticket was sold at the 13th Annual Orange Plaza Car Show, sponsored by Orange Sunrise Rotary.
