RANCHO SANTA FE — Jeri Rovsek of Rancho Santa Fe was one of 15 women honored this year by the Salvation Army.
The award goes to women who exemplify the selfless volunteers who donate their time or resources to help others in need. Rovsek and others will be honored at “The Many Profiles of Community Spirit,” the Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Women of Dedication Luncheon Feb. 24.
When Rovsek arrived in Rancho Santa Fe, she immediately began to participate in volunteer activities, friends noted. She founded the Girls Incorporated annual One Hundred Committee luncheon 25 years ago and that event has raised more than $7.5 million.
Girls Incorporated, with roots dating back to 1864, is a national nonprofit youth organization dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold. Rovsek has worked with the group for 12 years, serving on the national board.
Rovsek’s commitment to her community is also shown by her involvement as a fundraiser and her work as a board member for Casa de Amparo, on committees for the Old Globe Theater and currently, as president of Patrons of the Prado. She has also been involved with the Fairbanks Republican Women Federated and the North Coast Repertory Theatre.
