Dixie Sunrise Rotary is a member club of Rotary International, a worldwide service organization with 1.1 million members.  Our club was founded in 1996 and has been active in the St. George Community ever since.  Today we are 40 professional men and women who meet weekly in fellowship and perform local service projects at least once a month.  On any given weekend, you can find Dixie Rotarians working on projects such as road clean up, restoring Snow Canyon State Park or cooking dinner for Switchpoint clients. We also have sponsored important international service projects in Mexico, Costa Rica, Africa and Grenada.

Currently the Evening of Elegance is our major fundraising event for the year.  Over our 20 years of service we have raised over $200,000.00 which has supported the St. George Police, Dixie Regional Medical Center, the Washington County Search and Rescue and a variety of other local charities.  We know that many lives have been saved and improved because of our efforts to support the St. George Community.

In 2016, we formed The Dixie Sunrise Rotary Foundation, a 501-c-3 organization that allows us to expand our fund-raising efforts and service.  “The Rotary Foundation the mission is ‘To advance world understanding, good will, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty’.  This mission inspires us to serve the most vulnerable populations in our community and abroad,” said Janet Haines, 2018 Foundation President.  “We are proud to once again sponsor the Evening of Elegance,” she adds.
