Ultimately Ride4Rotary 2021 would attract an unprecedented 15 Event Sponsors and a further 9 Event Supporters who contributed to the success of the event in various ways.
The final proceeds coming in at almost $70,000 after event costs. This is more than triple the previous single year record of $22K and indeed 80% of what the event had raised in its previous 7 years overall.
On June 11 an official Cheque Presentation Ceremony was held at SYFS Youth and Family Centre in Warilla with guests including politicians, sponsors, Rotarians and of course several of the young people involved who were so committed to giving back to the organisation and programs that assist them.
All proceeds from Ride4Rotary go towards Southern Youth and Family Services Education, Employment and Training programs, designed to improve the quality of life of their young people and their families.
Southern Youth and Family Services would again like to thank and acknowledge Illawarra's Rotary Clubs, all event sponsors, supporters, everyone who registered and participated along with the generous Illawarra Community and everyone who sponsored riders and donated to the event.
