Rotary Club of Glendale (Noon) Makes Substantial Donations

Nancy Niebrugge accepts a donation on behalf of the Campbell Center.

The Rotary Club of Glendale (Noon) held a luncheon at the Glendale Police Dept. community room where it distributed $50,000 to 12 different organizations with programs for at-risk youth. The funds were raised through the Rotary’s Cars for Cops & Kids car show.

Cars for Cops and Kids has seen significant growth year-over-year, largely due to the support of donors and the Glendale community as a whole.

In 2017 the project generated approximately $9,700; in 2022, the project generated just over $60,000. Since its inception, the Cars for Cops & Kids project has raised approximately $210,000, with all proceeds going to at risk youth causes.

Donors to this year’s project include:

  • Pacific BMW, David Ho, Sevak Adamyan and Alicia Cruz
  • Glendale Adventist Health, Glendale Adventist
  • Sam and Grace Carvajal, a gold level sponsor since the inception of the project
  • Larry Tyson

Additional people and organizations that gave to the annual Cars for Cops & Kids event include Dad’s Club of Verdugo Woodlands Elementary School, Karlo Nazarian (overseeing the food, drinks and beer garden at the event), 3B Auto Brokers and Narbeh Zohrabi.
