Honoree’s Name: John Hinson

Why This Volunteer is Extraordinary:

John Hinson John headed up our Charity Committee Last year and was voted the Rooster of the Year in 2022 for the Roosters Foundation of Orange County. His duties as Charity Chair include communicating with as many as 30, 501 (c) 3 children’s charities located in Orange County. The charities must submit a complete write-up of what they do, including financials. The Committee then verifies everything and completes reference checks on each. Following this, the committee looks at all of this and rates each charity based upon the amount of good they bring to needy and disadvantaged kids and teenagers. So, these charities have been fully vetted before Roosters decides on how much to give to each charity. John has been a member of Roosters since 2003. He has held various Board positions in the past, including President in 2014 and twice co-chaired the Roosters primary fund-raising event. He is Married with two grown daughters and two grandsons.
