Members of the Golden and District Rotary Club would like to thank everyone that supported our two recently held fundraisers, the Cash Lottery and the Polio Plus toy sales. The Cash Draw rose more than $6,600 that we will use to fund local projects and initiatives. Thank you to those who purchased tickets to make this project such a success. Net toy sales were $1,015. Special thanks to the person that bid $250 on the toy train. Polio eradication is a global Rotary International project. After 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions. Rotary International teamed up with the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and the team created a challenge. Rotary received a $100 million Gates Foundation challenge grant. Rotary is now working to match that number. Your generous contributions will help Rotary raise $200 million to match $355 million in challenge grants received from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The resulting $555 million will directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries, where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families. The winners of the Cash Draw were; $5000, Katie Olsen (top photo), whose mother, Tessa Ellington, had purchased the ticket in her name, $1000, Jackie Ohnander (above left), and $500 Fred D’Ippolito (above right). Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone that purchased tickets. Photos submitted
