World Community Service auction
Our program on Feb. 23 will raise funds for our club's $7,500 commitment to I Pour Life's mentoring program in Korah, Ethiopia. That program helps ostracized women with AIDS, leprosy and other diseases improve their families' literacy and financial knowledge so they can earn livings and afford better housing. Our club's commitment is part of a Springfield-wide effort by all Rotary clubs that included district and Rotary International matching funds.
The World Community Service committee is still soliciting auction and raffle items for the event. Please contact Sharyn Dawson if you have something to donate.
In the past three years, our club's WCS auctions have raised more than $45,000 for 18 international projects.
Some of the items that will be auctioned include tickets for Chiefs and Cardinals games.
