The event was a huge success and as you can see from the pictures, we had a nice turnout. This is an event prior to our Help a Child Smile Golf Tournament happening this Saturday, 17 January, 2015.

Purple Pinkie Success – Key West!
Friday October 24th was World Polio Day as declared by Rotary International.  In Key West the three Rotary Clubs, (Sunrise, Noon, Sunset) joined forces in raising awareness and collecting funds to battle this crippling disease.
Every school in Key West participated in Purple Pinkie Day where in exchange for $1.00, students had their left pinkie stained with Gentian Violet.  It was tremendous success! Which was raised by Gerald Adams, Poinciana, Key West High School, Basilica School, Montessori Charter, Sigsbee Charter, Horace O Bryant and Big Pine Charter School.
These funds will be matched 2/1 by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, generating a total of:  $7,578.78. Each dollar will immunize two (2) children against Polio, that translates to a total of: 15,158 children being immunized.  Quite an impact from a tiny Island!!! 


We had a terrific time with DG Joe Roth and (First Lady) Diana and AG Jim Smith.  I think we were all inspired by his Rotary PASSION!!!

On June 28, 2014 - Hard Rock partners up with The Rotary Club of Key West and raises over $12k for the Paul J. Sher Scholarship.  This was an event you didn't want to miss.  The 99th President of the club was picked up in a limo awaiting for her was a red carpet.  Hard Rock had artist Rick Worth do a painting which was later sold at the live auction.  There was great entertainment, food, beverages and a silent auction.  The Hard Rock received a proclamation from the City of Key West for there generosity to the city and all they do for the community.  Diane Eliopoulos sure knows how to Rock !!!!

Thank you Diane for such a wonderful party over 400 people attended.Image

News From Rotary International

Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet three times a month at a wine bar after work, share a social outing once a month, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
