A Birthday Celebration for Renan Dominguez
Inaugurating the Renan Dominguez International Youth Exchange Scholarship Fund
Sunday, June 2, 2013, 5:30 - 7:00 PM
La Nueva Perla Restaurant, 222 Lux Street, South San Francisco, CA 94080
Between 1947-1948, Renan Dominguez studied in the United States as one of the first Rotary International Scholars. Later, he returned to the USA from his country of birth, Mexico, to build a family, career and the South San Francisco Rotary Club.
South San Francisco Rotary is hosting a 87th Birthday Celebration Dinner for Renan Dominguez on his June 2nd birthday, as we begin to raise funds to help students from both SSF and Rotary District 5150. This would be a way to provide new opportunities for youth in SSF and District 5150 to gain new international cultural experiences and leadership skills.
The local, independently-owned Mexican restaurant, La Nueva Perla, 222 Lux Street, South San Francisco, has a private dining room, and patio reserved for us.
We hope to start a new annual celebration for the inaugural Renan Dominguez International Youth Exchange Scholarships, with 50% of the net proceeds benefiting youth from the community of South San Francisco (with preference to members of Interact), and eventually supporting exchange of SSFSD Teachers and Administrators with SSF's Sister Cities, and 50% of the net proceeds offered as a scholarship to students from the entire Rotary District 5150. Currently, we understand that there are no scholarships available at the District Level to support International Youth Exchange.
Our goal is to raise support to initially help cover most of the costs for 1 sophomore from SSFHS and 1 sophomore from ECHS to receive a scholarship for the upcoming outbound Kishiwada Trip, in a special assistant role to help the organization, management and support for the project organizers. They will gain new leadership skills, while helping with both outbound and inbound groups (to help find host families and promote the program). Ideally, they would come from the Interact Clubs.
Please consider joining the celebration in support of the the new Renan Dominguez International Youth Exchange Scholarship of SSF Rotary as both a participant of the dinner as well as a possible corporate sponsor.
