On Thursday August 24, 2017, North Fresno Rotary President Rod Gibson 2017-18 announced the creation of a new club award; the Fred Biglione Award for Fundraising.
Fred Biglione was a beloved member of Rotary International, District 5230, and the East and North Fresno Rotary Clubs. Fred’s love of service lead Mr. Biglione to be the highest fundraiser in North Fresno Rotary several years over… despite not being a member of the club during the period.
Established many years ago (1987-1989) as a non-profit corporation to benefit the local community, the Endowment Fund attempts to assist worthwhile projects and efforts in Fresno and Madera County. The Endowment Fund is primary supported by contributions from North Fresno Rotarians but our finances are independent from the North Fresno Rotary Board. We meet on a bi-monthly basis (3rd Wednesday of every odd-month).
North Fresno Rotary would like to thank Mr. Michael Rabara of the Chapel of the Light Funeral Home for sponsoring our $1,000.00 Grand Prize Raffle ticket for our 32nd Annual Pancake Breakfast and Sidewalk Sale at Fig Garden Village Shopping Center on July 8, 2017.
