What's happening

We need your help, as a Rotary leader, to raise funds and awareness for The Rotary Foundation this Giving Tuesday, 28 November.

This global day of generosity is an opportunity for all members to make a big impact, with a gift of any size that supports projects you’re passionate about.

Here’s how to get ready for Giving Tuesday:

It's that time of year! We're looking to feed over 80 families this year, and inflation has had a big effect on the cost of food.

This year we're looking to raise at least $2460, to match the funding supplied by our District. You can join in by scanning this QR code, going to the Paypal link, or giving a check to Jan or Patty. Write "Holiday Meals" in the memo line.

Jan McKenzie is pulling together the Rotation Dinner Groups. You and your partner meet up with three other couples for dinner over the course of the next year - the rest is up to you!

This was very popular when we did it before. If you'd like to be a part of this wonderful chance to socialize with others as Real People™ then send an email to Jan! She can also answer your questions.

You and all your Rotary and non-Rotary contacts are invited to two exclusive ShelterBox events: one virtual, and the other in person in Las Vegas!

First, our annual Evening to Experience ShelterBox Virtual event is on November 16th 6PM Mountain.  Join Kerri Murray, President of ShelterBox USA and member of the Montecito Rotary Club, along with our dedicated Response Team members online for an unforgettable evening. Prepare to be moved as we share inspiring stories of families rebuilding their lives, all thanks to your support.

Additionally, we are excited to be back in person for our 2023 ShelterBox USA Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 1-3. We will take you through a true deep dive into the world of disaster response through the people who make it all happen, from fundraising, to implementation of responses, to recording the impact and stories of those we serve. Keynote Speaker: ShelterBox CEO, Sanj Srikanthan and more to be announced.

Do not hesitate to reach out to me or Rotary Relations Manager Bill Tobin (btobin@shelterboxusa.org) with any questions about either event. We would love to have your attendance and hope to see you soon.

Thank you,
