Sunrise Rotary’s Oktoberfest benefits STEAC, Yolo Hospice

By From page A10 | September 24, 2013

Raise a stein and celebrate Oktoberfest on Saturday with members of the Davis Sunrise Rotary Club. This year’s event is dedicated to the memory of longtime Rotarian Jay Gerber.

Proceeds will benefit the Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee and Yolo Hospice.

The Oktoberfest will run from 5 to 9 p.m. under the Central Park Pavilion. The event features an authentic Oktoberfest meal, catered by Little Prague; pilsner, märzen and a seasonal Oktoberfest brew from Sudwerk Brewery; wine and nonalcoholic drinks. Participants will be entertained with live music by the Grand Isle Fire Brigade.

Proceeds will support Yolo Hospice, whose mission is to provide expert and compassionate hospice care, bereavement support and public education about end-of-life issues for all in our community, regardless of ability to pay.

The other recipient, STEAC, provides immediate short-term assistance with basic necessities (food, clothing, rent, etc.) to Yolo County families with incomes below the poverty level.

Tickets are $25 in advance, available at https://davissunriserotary.eventbrite.com, or $30 at the door.

The Davis Sunrise Rotary Club is always looking for new members who want to make an impact in their community and the world. The club meets at 7 a.m. Fridays at the Davis Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. All meetings are open to the public and feature a guest speaker from the community.
