Columbia’s Capital Rotary Club has made donations for two humanitarian causes – one to eradicate polio, the other to provide disaster relief in the U.S. and overseas.

The club raised $882 that will be matched with District Designated Funds to become a donation of $1,764 for the worldwide campaign to eradicate polio.  Ending polio has been a mission of Rotary International since 1985.  Rotarians have contributed more than $1.7 billion and countless volunteer hours to immunize more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries.

Capital Rotary’s contribution – and the resulting match from District 7770 in eastern South Carolina – was made to celebrate World Polio Day/Week.  World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Dr. Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis.

The local club’s disaster relief donation totaled $8,000 earmarked for rebuilding lives and communities following hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico, plus the September earthquakes in Mexico. “We are coordinating through Rotary for the best way to distribute our funds to make a difference,” said Capital president Blake DuBose.

“Our board voted for this donation because we remember when Columbia was impacted by a 1,000-year flood in 2015 and an outpouring of support came from all parts of the country,” DuBose added.  “The greater Columbia area was the beneficiary of an incredible amount of giving then, so we’re doing what we can in the same spirit now.”

Want to attend the 2017 Bojangles Southern 500, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday September 3 2017?

The Darlington Rotary Club is doing a fundraiser involving the NASCAR race here on Sunday, September 3rd. This is a new project we have never done before and I wanted to spread the word about it to the entire district.

The way the fundraiser works is our Rotary Club has tickets discounted by $10 for sale at $30 in the Colvin Grandstand and every $30 race ticket sold includes a $5 donation to Rotary. We have a website set up with the Raceway at www.darlingtonraceway.com/rotary where anyone can go online and pick out their seat(s) in Colvin Grandstand for the race and raise money for Rotary. This is available until August 25th and I would love to e-mail this link and the details out to everyone in the District in case anyone wanted to attend the race or knew someone who wanted to attend the race here, since this would be a fun and unique way to benefit Rotary.
