Our annual fundraiser is all hands on deck and every member of Roswell Rotary Club participates by volunteering, donating or sponsoring the tournament. Working through COVID restrictions, we were able to host 130 golfers and 100+ tennis players between morning and afternoon flights. As in the past, our traditional firemen's ball drop was a big hit.
Our tournaments enabled Roswell Rotary to give $140,000 to thirty local charities including our international projects in Honduras and Panama where we provide clean water and feeding children. Local charities support includes End Human Trafficking, Be The Voice and Opioid Awareness, which grew out of the efforts of Roswell Rotarians.
In January our Charity Committee goes to work deciding which causes should benefit from this years proceeds. Each local charity submits a grant request through a formal application process with a deadline of Dec. 1st. Funds are distributed in the spring.
