Good Morning!

Welcome to the Champaign-Urbana Sunrise Rotary Club website. We meet every Thursday morning at 6:45 a.m. (yes, 6:45 in the morning). Although this may be early for some, not for this lively group of philanthropic people. Each week we enjoy fellowship, fun and lots of laughter all the while supporting many worthy charitable organizations in our community, nationally and internationally.

Clif Rocks! Benefit Memorial Day Weekend

Suzanne Aldridge has taught English and drama at Centennial High School for twenty-six years. She served as the teacher sponsor of Centennial’s Interact Club from 2003-2008, and her husband, Bob, served as Champaign Rotary President from 2003-2004. Sue will retire from Centennial in June and has planned one last show, “Callbacks,” to raise money for the Clif Rocks! Foundation, which she and Bob started in 2010, after their son, Clif, lost his battle with cancer. The Clif Rocks! Foundation provides scholarships for deserving Centennial and Illinois State University students and young adults that are battling cancer. Over two hundred Centennial alumni will return Memorial Day weekend to reprise roles from past years, performing two shows on Sunday, May 28; one at 2:00 pm and one at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $10.00 for general admission and $50.00 for premium seating. Click on https://store11472354.ecwid.com to buy tickets. Your donation will be a great way to honor Sue Aldridge and her son, Clif.
