Rotarians in Action
Calling all wine lovers! The 22nd annual Paso Robles Rotary Winemakers’ Cookoff is returning for a night filled with quality wine, gourmet food and fun. Twenty of the region’s best winemakers and breweries will battle it out for the Judges’ Awards and People’s Choice. All proceeds will benefit the Harlow Ford Scholarship Fund for local high school seniors. The Paso Robles Rotary Club is dedicated to helping youth in the community. During the 2020 pandemic, our club donated more than $75,000 in scholarships. Help us continue supporting local youth and delight your taste buds with choice wine and excellent food at the 22nd Annual Winemakers Cookoff. We hope to see you there!
We all know that Rotary’s motto is ‘Service Above Self.'  If you have an inkling to help others, Rotary is a great place to do it.  However, Rotary is SO MUCH MORE than that.  WIIFM?  What is in it for you?.... VALUE!  Rotary offers lots of amazing opportunities to meet influential business leaders in your community and professionally network with them. Rotary club members represent a cross-section of the community’s owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals – people who make decisions and influence policy.
