The Ross Family Legacy Foundation supports charities and non-profit organizations in order to make an immediate, positive impact on the lives of people and animals in our communities.
"The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind."

The Rooster’s hosted their food & wine event last weekend and the Ross Family Foundation was a sponsor. This two day event kicked off with an afternoon in the sun and tastes of beautiful California wines. The following evening was an extra special treat with private dinners each hosted by an exclusive Chef. The RFF was lucky to have Chef Masa Oso from McCormick & Schimicks, Beverly Hills, as our chef. Let me tell you it was delish! The best part other than the food & drink was that this event raised over $200,000 to feed local OC families in need. Talk about a huge impact on the community.
Did you know:
The Roosters is a charity and social organization, consisting of 100 professional men, with diverse backgrounds, from the greater Orange County area of Southern California. Each year, we raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for disadvantaged children. February 2010 marked the 33-year that the Roosters have been active in philanthropy and outstanding community service. We are a 501-C-3 tax-exempt corporation that provides a cost effective means of fund raising with marketing advice and support for local children’s charities and community groups.
Over the years, the Roosters have been recognized by the news media, the Orange County Board of Supervisors, the State of California and the United States Congress. Roosters Food & Wine Celebration joins the Roosters Foundation Food Drive (This year will feed 5,000 families with needy and at-risk children representing 40,000 people living below the poverty line in Orange County), the Rooster Bowl college football championship fundraiser and our annual Roosters Children’s Charity Golf Tournament in placing the Roosters amongst the foremost men’s charity organizations in the United States.
William Ross is thrilled to be a member and social chair at the Roosters organization, organizations such as this is what the RFF is proud to support. Great event to all those who came out and supported the efforts of the Roosters.
