On Tuesday July 29th, 2014 at the Glendale City Council, checks were distributed by the Glendale Sunrise and Noon Rotary clubs to three nonprofits that benefit children in our beautiful city. Homenetmen, the Glendale YMCA, and the Glendale Youth Alliance each received a portion of the money that was raised by the second annual Jewel City Ride. Many thanks go out to our many sponsors including Bache Capital Management and the Glendale Adventist Medical Center.
