Our annual Aubrey Greenway Golf and Hagan Cup Classic Tennis tournaments are all hands on deck and almost every member of Roswell Rotary Club participates by volunteering, donating or sponsoring the tournament. This year we enjoyed a great day at Brookfield Country Club with two flights of golf and two tennis tournaments and many silent auction sales. We had 175 golfers and 65 tennis players combined playing in both morning and afternoon flights. As in the past, our traditional ball drop from the local fire department's ladder truck was a big hit.
Our annual fundraiser enabled Roswell Rotary to net $151,500 to support charities in our local community and our international projects. In January our Charity Committee determines which causes should benefit from this year's proceeds. Each local charity submits a grant request through a formal application process with a deadline of Dec. 1st. Recipients include international projects like Lunches for Learning in Honduras and local charities such as Be The Voice, End Human Trafficking and North Fulton Community Charities. Funds will be distributed in late March at a regular Rotary meeting.
