Ventura Rotary South Holds Annual Bake Sale
In Support of St. Bonaventure Interact Club

Among the various fund-raising events conducted by members of Ventura Rotary South is the annual Bake Sale in support of the Interact Club at St. Bonaventure High School in Ventura. Interact is the worldwide branch of Rotary designed for young people from 12-18 who want to make a difference in global and local issues they care about. The Interact Club at St. Bonaventure has supported such causes as Caregivers (a Ventura County senior care organization), community recycling programs, Rotary International's Polio Plus Program, and even Ventura Rotary South.

Each year, St. Bonaventure Interact students and their friends bake up plates of tasty treats, which are then auctioned off to the highest bidders at a Ventura South lunch meeting. This year, we had everything from fresh chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies to homemade brownies to red velvet cake. In the photo above, Ventura South member Dennis Longwill gets the bidding started on a plate of cookies held by Interact member Angelina.

This year's Bake Sale raised a total of $1,200 in support for the Interact Club. (As usual, the tasty baked goods expanded a few waistlines as well.)
