Proceeds from the Derby, the Cadillac Ball, go to grants for projects and activities of nonprofits that benefit the Truckee community. 

Since its inception, the Cadillac Ball has raised over $1.5 million and 100% of the proceeds are returned to the community through a monthly grant-making process, helping fill the financial holes for hundreds of local nonprofits, charities, and grassroots organizations. 

Funds raised by the Cadillac Ball have supported the Truckee River Legacy, Sierra Senior Services – Meals on Wheels, youth and education, arts and culture, animal welfare, and more.  

The Rotary Club of Truckee was chartered on Feb. 14, 1978 and has approximately 100 active members.
