2022 Float Ambassadors
The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee Inc. presented “Changing the World Through Education” as the theme of our January 1, 2022, float. This year we created a new way for individuals (limited to 100) to support the Float promoting Rotary International and one of its areas of focus – Education and Literacy.
Any Rotarian in good standing contributing $500 or more, can become a Float Ambassador at his or her request. They must pledge to advocate for support (monetary/volunteer) for the 2022 Float at their Rotary Club, District, Zone and any RI events they attend. If support materials needed they will be supplied upon timely request.
In exchange for their donation, they received:
- A personalized RRPFC jacket
- A patch of the 2022 Float
- The annual theme pin for the 2022 Float
- An official RRPFC hat in blue or yellow
- A drawing ticket to be a rider on the 2022 Float which is exclusive to Ambassadors only.
