Ojai Wine Festival
The 35th Ojai Wine Festival was a huge success! Thank you for attending and supporting our fundraising event. Since 1987, the Ojai Wine Festival has earned over $1.5 Million for Rotarian Community Service and international projects.
The Rotary Club of Ojai West Foundation’s charitable projects focus on improving education, aiding women and children’s health, and supporting activities that enrich the lives of area youth. Our annual projects include our science-based Rotary Floating Classroom, Third Grade Dictionary Project, Nordhoff High School’s “Service Above Self” scholarships for graduating seniors, free Ojai Community Summer Band Concerts and Maintenance and Improvements to Rotary Park. In addition, each year local grants are offered to schools, youth, and service organizations. Past grants went to support Boy and Girl Scouts, Help of Ojai, Ojai Unified Public Schools, Girl’s Empowerment Workshop, National Search Dog Foundation, Secure Beginnings, Ojai Homeless Shelters, Ojai Cares, Ojai Valley Land Conservancy, Ojai 4th of July Committee, Thomas Fire and COVID-19 relief, Boys and Girls Club, Children’s Playground at Libbey Park, and local youth sports, arts, theater, and music programs.
The Rotary of Ojai West Foundation, Inc., supports many worldwide projects fostered by the International Rotary Foundation. These endeavors help protect the environment and drinking water, support peace, implement education programs, improve women’s and children’s health, combat poverty and fight diseases like eradicating polio worldwide. Every year our Rotary club donates to Polio Plus: the worldwide fight to eradicate poliomyelitis.
We hope you can attend next year’s 36th Ojai Wine Festival on Saturday, June 15th, 2024 from 12-4pm at the beautiful Lake Casitas Recreation Area.
