What We Do
Warwick Rotary is active in the local community, with an emphasis on service and community connections. Here are some of our amazing annual events:

Promoting Literacy: Dictionary Distribution

In an effort to promote literacy and learning, Rotary funds the purchase of dictionaries for every 3rd grader in the city of Warwick each year. Warwick Rotary members then volunteer to visit all the 3rd grade classrooms in the city and distribute the dictionaries to students for them to write their names in and keep as their own. Volunteers answer the children's questions and tell them about Rotary and what we do. The dictionaries are always met with smiles and Warwick Rotary receives very sweet handwritten thank you notes from the young dictionary recipients every year.

The Gourmet Gala

Our major annual fundraising event, The Gourmet Gala is an amazing time for all. Held at the Radisson Hotel, the event boasts samplings of delicious food, wine and beers from over 20 local restaurants, with a cooking demonstration and raffle as well. This is an incredibly fun event, with the opportunity to enjoy great food and great company for a great cause. All proceeds from this event go to support Warwick Rotary and the many charities we support.

Annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot to benefit Warwick Schools

Thanksgiving 2016 will be our 3rd annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot, and the event has really taken off. Held in Warwick City Park, start off your Thanksgiving Day celebration with a 5k walk/run to benefit Warwick Rotary and Warwick High Schools. Be creative with your attire, because there are prizes for best costume in a variety of categories. Make this incredible event part of your Thanksgiving Day family tradition!

Annual Children's Christmas Party

Every Christmas season, Warwick Rotary partners with Warwick Public Schools to host a Christmas party for children in need. The party consists of pizza, cupcakes, magic, Christmas carols, and of course - a visit with Santa! Warwick rotary members generously donate gifts for this incredible and heart-warming event, so that each child may be presented with a unique gift purchased specifically for him or her.

And more!
