West Bay Rotary Yard Sale Fundraiser a Big Success
On Saturday, July 20th, West Bay Rotary held a yard sale fundraiser. Midcoast Recreation Center was kind enough to let the club join their community yard sale and West Bay Rotary raised over $1,300 for “End Polio Now”. Because of matching funds from both the district and the Bill Gates Foundation, this actually translates to over $7,800 for this worthy cause.
According to Rotary’s website www.endpolio.org: "Rotary is an international community that brings together leaders who step up to take on the world’s toughest challenges, locally and globally. The eradication of polio is one of our longest standing and most significant efforts. Along with our partners, we have helped immunize more than 2.5 billion children against polio in 122 countries. We have reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide and we won't stop until we end the disease for good. "
The event was so successful and everyone had such a good time, that this might just become an annual event for West Bay Rotary.
