Funding our Future: Auction & Drive Through BBQ for Student Scholarships

Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo – Online Auction & Drive Through BBQ Fundraiser for Local Student Scholarships


Due to COVID-19, the Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo had to cancel its annual Spaghetti Western Dinner & Silent Auction for the second year in a row, which funded the Challenge Scholarship Program.

Instead of the in-person event, the Rotary Club of SLO will be holding an online auction for Student Scholarships taking place, May 20th – June 2nd. Winning bidders can pick up auction items on Sunday June 6th, at Mechanics Bank in San Luis Obispo.

The Rotary Club will also be offering a Drive-Through BBQ during auction pick-up on Sunday June 6th. BBQ tickets can be purchased online for $35 in advance at slorotary.org ($40 day-of) and will include your choice of Chicken / Tri-Tip / Vegetarian, PLUS: Sausage, beans, sourdough bread, & cookies… each meal will be enough to feed 2!

The Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo’s Challenge Scholarship Program provides scholarships to local students who have faced significant personal challenges and excelled in their studies. Each year the Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo awards nearly $40,000 in scholarships to local students to attend college or trade school, thanks to the support and generosity of our community members.


You have the opportunity to bid on incredible items, support our local businesses and support our local students – a win-win for everyone!

Starting May 20th – view & bid on auction items here: https://slorotary.ejoinme.org/FundingOurFuture2021

Click on the menu links on the left to preview or bid, learn more, or help fund a scholarship with a direct donation.

Your bids and donations make these scholarships possible. Thank you for your support and generosity.
