Sage Advocacy Center was started in the late 70's to provide a 24-hour crisis line and advocacy for victims of sexual assault in Chelan and Douglas County. Over the years, additional services have been added for children and adults to include victims of domestic violence and now provides a range of support services at no charge to everyone, regardless of  age, gender, nationalities, ethnicities, socioeconomic status, race, and religion.

The Wenatchee Rotary Foundation's (WRF) work is focused on improving educational opportunities in the Greater Wenatchee area. Funding for Community Outreach Grants  is established through the donations of current and past Wenatchee Rotary Club members and the community.

Wenatchee Rotary Community Outreach Grants are awarded through an application process each spring.  WRF has awarded Community Outreach Grants to organizations and programs such as the Wenatchee Valley College Knights Kupboard, Camp Zanika and YMCA scholarships and classroom grants through the Educational Service District.

Club member Pete Van Well promises a night of fun and good natured laughter for a good cause.
