Our annual fundraiser is all hands on deck and every member of Roswell Rotary Club participates by volunteering, donating or sponsoring the tournament. We host 300+ golfers and 100+ tennis players between our morning and afternoon flights. After a long day of play, we host an afterparty that includes awards for the days winners, a silent auction, dinner and drinks.
Our tournaments enable Roswell Rotary to give $150,000+ back to our local community and charities. Once the dust settles and all the expenses are paid our club's charity committee goes to work deciding which local causes should benefit from this year's proceeds. Each local charity submits a grant request through a formal application process with a deadline in December. Funds are typically distributed to local charities the following spring.
This year we made some large check presentations at events benefiting the charities we support like the one pictured below for HomeStretch. This lets the public know that Roswell Rotary is behind that charity in a big way. For other charities we spent the day hand delivering checks and seeing first hand the great work each of these organizations is doing in our community.
