Community Volunteer Awards Night
"UNDER THE BIG TOP"
The Cordova Community Council Volunteer Awards is a public event designed to celebrate and inspire volunteerism in the community and raise the profile of outstanding volunteer efforts. Theme for 2011 is "Under the Big Top", a nod to the "three-ring circus" of citizens, businesses and government who work together, helping Rancho Cordova achieve All-America City status in 2010. "Under the Big Top" is also a fundraiser for the Cordova Community Council, with themed silent auction and "balloon-popping" events planned.
