The Rotary Club of Charlevoix

Pints for Polio

Please join the Charlevoix Rotary Club on December 3rd and help us raise money to stop Polio Worldwide! Internationally, Rotary has helped immunize more than 2 billion children against polio in more than 122 countries, which has resulted in reducing the polio cases by 99 percent worldwide. For every pint of beer sold, LCBC will donated a dollar, and for every dollar raise (up to $1000) Charlevoix Rotary Club will match the donation to Polio Plus. This event is open to the public, so mark your calendars and tell all your friends.
We had a very successful event.  Thanks to the generosity of the Lake Charlevoix Brewery, attendees, and our club match we successfully raised $2408.  Each pint of beer sold resulted in $6 to EndPolioNow ($1 donated from LCBC, $1 match from the club, $4 from Gates foundation).  Grand total raised from this event (including Gates foundation match) $9,632, resulting in the equivalent of one pint of beer immunizing 10 children!!
