Valentine’s weekend saw the culmination of the Rotary Club of Grimsby’s newest fundraising effort, and a significant pivot in this time of Covid restrictions.  Donate and Dine – This Valentine was a great success, garnering over $10,000 in gross receipts for the club over a span of 18 days of club members’ efforts.
 
Using a virtual platform, the fundraiser included an online silent auction website, a take-out dinner component and an opportunity to donate to local or Foundation efforts.  Community members were encouraged to pre-order either a Lobster Roll/Clam Chowder dinner or a Full Rack of Ribs dinner online and use curbside pick-up the evening of February 13th to enjoy a Valentine’s dinner with their loved ones, families, and partners.
