Courtesy of Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista:

The Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista will host the “Saints to San Juan”, an Online Silent Auction that will showcase a variety of beautiful period art, vintage furniture , a variety of wines and much more!

In 2002, the San Juan Bautista Chamber of Commerce began the Saint Adoption Program to raise money for future restoration. With the closing of the Chamber, the Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista began its sponsorship of the Saints, continuing the Saint Adoption Program for restoration and storage, and posting the Saints each holiday season to support the traditions of San Juan Bautista.

“Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we decided to continue our fundraising efforts by organizing a virtual auction,” said Art Testani of Rotary San Juan Bautista. “The auction items were donated by our club members and community leaders to help us support the projects we have in place for students and the community,” he added.

The proceeds will benefit :

· Scholarships awarded to high school graduates of Anzar High School,

· Our sponsorship of high school students attending a Rotary leadership camp,

· Funding community grants for special projects, i.e. refurbishing local parks

· Maintaining Rotary benches throughout San Juan Bautista,

· Partnering with the Aromas-San Juan Unified School District to purchase internet access equipment and Chrome Books for students to assist with distance-learning.
