Boone Sunrise Rotary Raises $10K With Recent ‘Great Fruit for a Great Cause’ Benefit

imgresFeb. 25, 2014. The Boone Sunrise Rotary wishes to thank the High Country community for its support of our recent annual citrus sales.  We had a record year thanks to you!  The nearly $10,000 we raised will go to support local, regional and international organizations and needs.

Some examples of what our fundraiser “Great Fruit for a Great Cause” benefits:

Annual scholarships for Watauga High School Seniors to attend a college of their choice;

Along with other service clubs, provides dictionaries to all Watauga County seventh grade students;

Rotary Foundation which supports worthy international projects including special funding to eliminate polio throughout the world;

Shelter Boxes (a three room domed-tent with supplies for an entire family) sent to national and international areas devastated by natural disasters;

Rotary TAP (Tanzanian Aqua Project) which provides safe water collection systems for Tanzanians.

Plus, every year we receive requests from a variety of local charities that we respond to.

We are very fortunate to serve a community where so much is done to help our children and families.  We look forward to a great year and our continued work together.
