Don Hovis, President of the Rotary Club of Myrtle Beach, welcomed an audience of more than 1,400 to this year’s Bravo Broadway concert. President Don thanked concert goers for their support, which to date has generated more than $250,000, benefitting dozens of local nonprofits.
In his remarks, Don encouraged those who want to ‘give back’ to consider Rotary. ”From Rotary’s major initiative to eradicate Polio from the face of the earth, we have reduced polio cases by 99.9% since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. To date, Rotary has immunized more than 2.5 billion children in 122 countries and has spent over three billion dollars to help others. From the clean water projects here in the US, and around the globe, to building schools in Ghana, to our local Rotarians who assist young children in Freedom Readers’ fight for literacy, Rotarians are at work in this community, in your community, and around the globe. If you are looking for a great opportunity to give back, I encourage you to attend a local Rotary Club meeting. We would welcome you, and I think you would find it a rewarding, worthwhile experience,” he concluded.
