Rotary Club of St. Petersburg Donates $10,000 to Support Children's Art Programs at the Morean Arts Center

The Rotary Club of St. Petersburg presented a check for $10,000 to the Morean Arts Center to benefit art scholarships for disadvantaged children to participate in art education programs. The funds came from the club's "Wine for the Arts," wine tasting event held earlier this year.

"This substantial gift means a great deal the the Morean Arts Center," said Roger Ross, Morean's Interim CEO and CFO, who received the funds during a presentation at the Rotary Club's meeting on June 10. "This will allow us to provide scholarships for children to attend our summer camps and participate in other art programs. We appreciate the support of the St. Petersburg Rotary Club."

Founded in 1920, The Rotary Club of St.Petersburg is the oldest civic club in St. Petersburg. The club provides financial and volunteer support to many community organizations. The club meets every Friday at noon at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
