The SASSY Awards (Service Above Self Surrey Youth) is Semiahmoo Rotary’s celebration and recognition of the fantastic youth who live, work and learn in Surrey and White Rock. Recognizing and engaging exceptional youth in our community honours our core Rotarian values of Service, Fellowship, Diversity, Integrity and Leadership. We are also investing in our future leaders and building capacity in Rotary.

Six youth will receive a $1,000 award along with six $500 donations that each award recipient will present to a charity of their choice.

Become a Friend of SASSY!

Please note that SASSY is not a fundraising event – it is an awareness raiser and a way of engaging our diverse community – from youth who live, work and learn in Surrey and White Rock while serving and volunteering countless hours – to charities that provide important community services for our friends, neighbours and loved ones. Every penny donated to Friends of SASSY goes into the show and towards youth programs that continue to nurture young people and the concept of service above self, which is the backbone of what Rotary stands for. 

Please consider helping us celebrate fantastic youth in our community by being a ‘Friend of SASSY‘, which can be done online for as little as $10!
