Coming up - Play it Forward!!


It's not's what fundraising FUNDS!

Play It Forward Raffle & Bingo Night! $1,500 Raffle
It’s not JUST a fundraising effort. Then what is it?
Here is what it is NOT….It’s not a money grab. It’s not a challenge to see who has more money or can collect more. It’s not who is selling the most tickets. If not these than what????
What it IS -is our WHY!
Why do we fundraise? It’s not the dollar amount (though we need a lot). It’s what the FUNDS we raise DO!!
It’s what the funds do that is important. We have charitable organizations that count on us for so many things. Sure they can get grants. But OUR Rotary donations have a real and necessary impact.
A $1000 or $2500 grant makes a huge difference in what our surrounding non-profits can provide to the people they serve. This is what Rotary is about. This is the WHY of Rotarians.
Why do we need to raise more? Why are we asking friends, family and others to chip in, come out and socialize with us? So our WHY is funded!!
Let’s start with the North Suburban Y whose Café VOCA received club funds. The café helps to train and employ people with different abilities THAT’S WHY!!!
Youth Services that helps teens navigate the world we live in. THAT’S WHY!!!
Bernie’s Books – an organization that distributes reading materials to thousands of children. THAT’S WHY!!!
The Northfield Food Pantry, CATCH, The Center for Enriched Living, TotalLink2, ShelterBox, End Polio Now, and so many others.
Our WHY needs a boost. We are only at 38% of a $25,000 goal. Call your friends, post the QR code, share the link -but more importantly share the WHY!!
