Montgomery Sunrise Rotary Club was proud to host the 2nd annual Commitment to Service Award with a Roast of Mr. Carl Barranco on May 19, 2006 at the RSA Activities Center, Montgomery, AL.

Over 200 guests joined Montgomery Sunrise Rotary Club for another elegant evening of fine dining honoring Mr. Carl Barranco for his commitment to service benefiting his fellow man. Once again, esteemed members and noteworthy organizations in the Montgomery community, gathered together to help roast our honoree. Our ticket sales, corporate sponsorships and proceeds from a silent auction, allowed Montgomery Sunrise Rotary raise $10,000 to assist the Mid-South Division of the American Cancer Society as they develop a transportation program for cancer patients who cannot provide transport to and from their chemotherapy sessions.
