The Rotary Club of Alameda has released the list of recipients for its 2015 Season of Giving Community Grants Program to be awarded on Tuesday, Dec. 1. This year, 18 organizations will receive a total of $15,000 to further their missions of supporting Alameda residents. They include the Boys & Girls Club, Boy Scouts of America, Alameda Education Foundation, Food Bank, Friends of the Park, Meals on Wheels, Alameda Music Project, Altarena Playhouse, Encinal High School, American Association of University Women, Boost Leadership, Frank Bette Center for the Arts, Island High School, League of Women Voters, Pacific Pinball Museum, YMCA, Rhythmix Cultural Works and Girls Inc.
The Rotary grants program is funded through beverage sales at the Concerts at the Cove music series and the generosity of local businesses that support the free family friendly concerts. Rotary wants to acknowledge and thank those businesses including Alameda Landing/Catellus Development Corp., Alameda Point Partners, Kane & Associates Realty, Alain Pinel Realty, Harbor Bay Realty, Broadway Management, Bay Ship & Yacht, Café Jolie, Calafia Taqueria, Peter’s Kettle Corn, Rosenblum Cellars, R & B Cellars, Rock Wall Wine Company, Jeff Cohen Cellars, Faction Brewing, Kelly Lux State Farm Insurance, Alameda Sun, Alameda Journal, East Bay Express, Alameda County Industries, Alameda Association of Realtors, Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda and Alana Dill, resident face painter.
The concert music series is jointly produced through the efforts of many Rotarians, the staff of the East Bay Regional Park District, and funding from the Regional Parks Foundation. Without these partners, Concerts at the Cove would not be possible.
The Rotary Club of Alameda would like to thank the community for supporting the Concerts at the Cove music series through the purchase of beverages and food. Together, we make a difference in the lives of Alameda residents.
