Founded in 1983 the Rotary Club of Ponte Vedra Beach is part of the global network of Rotary International and has grown to more than 130 members who dedicate themselves to fulfilling Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self”. As part of our commitment to service, we proudly host the annual Mineral City Celebration. The Ponte Vedra Beach Rotary Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit through which the club provides financial support to dozens of local charities. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the Mineral City Celebration benefit the foundation, which then distributes the funds to dozens of local charities through a rigorous application process. The foundation has distributed $1.5 million to Beaches-area non-profits that make a valuable contribution to the lives of local residents.
This year we are honoring Deane Beman, former PGA Tour Commissioner, with our “Rock of the Community Award” for his vision and impact on our community. To honor him, a major beneficiary this year is his charity of choice - Vision Is Priceless.
Our Mineral City Celebration remains an important charitable event that strengthens our community. We appreciate the support of the community in making the event a success year after year.
