Rotary supports students of the arts

Tim Morsani

In 2016, the Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke invited artist Diana Madaras to headline a fundraiser to help fund art departments in nearby schools. SaddleBrooke residents channeled over $6,000 to elementary schools in Oracle, San Manuel and Catalina.

Oracle used their $2,000 to purchase ukuleles which are being used to introduce fifth graders to the fun of creating music. One year later, the club was treated to a recital ensemble of ten students playing their instruments and singing Christmas carols.

Diana Madaras brought her traveling gallery to SaddleBrooke again this December and again SaddleBrooke and Ranch residents came out to enjoy a Sunday afternoon, shop for holiday gifts and invest in our communities’ youth. Thank you.
