The Rotary Club of Northbrook’s annual raffle raises money to support the many initiatives and projects that club members participate in, both locally and around the world. Your $100 ticket includes a chance to win $5,000 and other cash prizes, plus admission for two to our Bingo Game night with food, fun and frolic for all hosted at the North Suburban YMCA in Northbrook. 

A few examples of projects that have been funded through past raffles include:

  • End Polio Now; Rotary’s international initiative to eradicate polio

  • ShelterBox and more


Report by Mitch Portugal:
On Nov. 17th I participated in the Indoor Ride to End Polio at the Good Shepherd Health and Fitness Club representing the Rotary Club of Northbrook.
There were 30 Rotarian riders who raised $5,000 in pledges! With the Gates Foundation match of 2:1 totaling $15,000.  This funding will provide vaccinations for 25,000 children in Pakistan and Afghanistan saving them from Polio.
Let’s all thank Mitch for his effort!
The Rotary Club of Northbrook volunteer efforts on Saturday, November 16 at Sunset Foods helped in the coordination and distribution of 120,000 Lbs. of protein chicken to food shelters, soup kitchens, food pantries, and churches.
  • Hunger Resource Network (HRN) is an all volunteer organization
  • HRN provides high quality protein and produce to recipient agencies at no cost to them
  • HRN serves communities in an area from Lake County in the north to the south side of Chicago and west as far as the Fox Valley area
Rotarians Ron Bernardi, Denis Polina, Mitch Portugal and Andy Vass were among the dozens of volunteers and recipient organizations.
