Both Emmerson and Melendez presented Rotary Club of Menifee with a proclamation honoring the club’s 50 years of “service above self”. Tom Fuhrman, Menifee City Council, and Jonathan Greenberg, Perris Union High School District, also attended.
Generous donations came from the following corporate sponsors: The Children’s Dental Practice, Too Much Tina Media, Rilynn Company Insurance Services, Eastern Municipal Water District, Menifee 24/7, Hope Plaza Pharmacy, Elevate Fitness, Rancho Family Medical Group, eHealthSupplies, Hire The Stache, Boomerang Boutique, Menifee Lakes Optometry, and Brown, White & Newhouse LLP.
“We wish to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the Red Carpet Affair for making it a success,” said Rotary member Ruth Bol, DDS, who coordinated the event. “It’s from the support of our community that we’re able to help children succeed.”
Hosted at Aces Comedy Club in Murrieta, comedian Tom Wilson, best known for playing “Biff” in the "Back to the Future" movie trilogy, anchored the night’s entertainment.
