Chaska Rotary Gala 2018The Chaska Rotary Club Gala is one of our largest annual fundraisers. Each year, we accept applications from organizations in our community who need support. This year, the following local non-profits received contributions from the Rotary Club of Chaska:

To date, SVABW has assisted more than 19,000 women and their children on their journey for a violence free, healthy family life. Through support from our sponsors and members, the Chaska Rotary will help fund the gap in SVABW’s operating fund in order to allow it to continue to provide a wide range of services for its clients.

Five Stars features 96 beds and a comprehensive continuum of care which includes residential, outpatient, and sober living.
