Rural Community and Business Leaders Raise $56,250 for Mono County Nonprofits

SACRAMENTO, CA – November 9, 2021 –  The Rural County Representatives of California (RCRC) presented $56,250 to five Mono County nonprofits at the Mono County Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday. Rural community and business leaders from across the state raised the funds during the Basket Drawing and Auction at RCRC’s 2021 Annual Meeting in late September for the benefit of nonprofits serving the Mono County community.

“These meaningful contributions will further support the important work of our Mono County nonprofits serving local students, veterans, fire survivors, and hospice patients,” said RCRC Board Chair and Mono County Supervisor Stacy Corless. “I am so grateful for the generosity of our RCRC family, especially our corporate partners, that attended RCRC’s Annual Meeting and their dedication to supporting California’s rural communities.”

RCRC’s Annual Meeting concludes with a Basket Drawing and Auction in which a county-themed basket is auctioned off from each of RCRC’s 37 member counties. This year $56,250 was raised, which includes a $10,000 contribution from RCRC.  The proceeds from the Basket Auction portion of the event are donated to select charities in the county of the RCRC Board Chair. This year’s selected charities include the Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra/National Wounded Warrior Center, Eastern Sierra Conservation Corps, Mono Arts Council, Valentine Eastern Sierra Reserves, and Antelope Valley Lions Club.
