Rotary Santa Run Gives Back

Rotary Santa Run…..For a good “Claus”

The chairman of the Rotary Santa Run Cathy Renner and the Santa Run committee reports that over $27, 000 dollars profit was raised during our annual fundraiser.  $20,000 is designated for the 2018 UE Change Maker Challenge, designed to motivate young people to take a leading role in identifying and solving challenges in the world around them through innovation and creativity.  This falls in line with Rotary’s mission statement of bringing business and professional leaders together in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards, and to advance goodwill and peace around the world.  Both of our organizations are committed to making a positive impact in our community.  As such, we are excited for the opportunity to support a program that empowers the leaders of tomorrow to make a better community for all.
In addition, $500 will be given to the Boom Squad whose mission is to provide youth the necessary skills to make well informed choices that lead to a healthy lifestyle and successful future.
The remainder of the profits will go back into the Rotary Foundation of Evansville for future board approved programs.
