Rotary’s Big Night supports child abuse prevention efforts

Tickets are available now for the Rotary Club of Davis’ 14th annual Big Night fundraiser for the club’s Child Abuse Prevention Program. The event — a black-tie-optional dinner, dance, raffle and live auction — takes place Saturday at the El Macero Country Club.

Funds raised at Big Night go to local nonprofit organizations that are engaged in primary child abuse prevention. About $30,000 is available each year for donations. Since its inception in 1999, the event has raised more than $300,000.

Through the efforts of Rotarians Bud and Judy Wolf, public awareness and education about child abuse prevention has extended well beyond the borders of Davis and Yolo County. A key piece of the program is education about abusive head trauma, better known as shaken baby syndrome. The program also has begun an education and awareness program on the impact of alcohol and drug use on unborn children.

The club has provided funds to nonprofits such as the Yolo County Children’s Alliance, the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center, the Yolo Crisis Nursery and the Yolo Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center.

Last year, a team of Rotarians visited Kenya, East Africa, to educate physicians, medical students and nurses on how to identify abusive head trauma in children. The team trained nearly 1,000 professionals throughout Kenya.

Tickets for Big Night are $75 per person, and table sponsorships are available. For tickets or to donate a raffle or live auction item, contact Judy Wolf at [email protected].

The Rotary Club of Davis meets weekly at noon and has served the Davis community since 1926. It provides funding and public service for Davis and numerous international Rotary projects. The club is conducting membership drives, seeking active men and women interested in serving their community. For membership information, contact Paul Lacoste at [email protected].
