Fernandina Beach, FL – Immediate past president of the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise, Mark Cutshaw, of Florida Public Utilities accepted the Significant Achievement Award from Fel Lee, District Governor, at the recent Installation of Officers event held at the Marlin and Barrel Distillery, the newest business in Downtown Fernandina Beach.
Approximately 150 awards of this nature were given out from Rotary International. The Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise won for its signature fundraising event – the Annual International Food and Wine Tasting Event held the first weekend of March.
In 2012, the Sunrise Club applied for district matching grants which resulted in over $33,279.04 to Wolfson Children’s Hospital to purchase four pediatric neurosurgery beds. 84 percent of Nassau County children receive care at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
In 2013, Wolfson’s was able to purchase three defibrillators with the proceeds from the fundraiser. In 2014, the Sunrise Club partnered with Arts Alive Nassau to help fund their music education programs.
