Contribute to the Rotary Foundation & Attend Zone 34’s Million Dollar Dinner

District 6990’s Foundation Committee supports each club’s initiatives from fundraising to project fulfillment. Each program addresses a particular area and is manned by Rotarians who are intimately familiar with the Foundation processes.

To this end, a special-purpose website has been created to serve as a resource of information and contacts to further enhance the mission of the District 6990 clubs “doing good”!

Attend Zone 34’s Million Dollar Dinner

Vice President Anne Matthews, Endowment/Major Gift Advisor PDG Bill Woulfin and Major Gift Officer Debra Lowe are proud to announce that on February 8, 2014, Zone 34 will hold its first ever Million Dollar Dinner. Rotary International President Ron Burton will be the keynote speaker as we celebrate the generosity of our Zone’s Rotarians whose major gift contributions and Bequest Society commitments to The Rotary Foundation during the period of 1 July 2013 and 1 March 2014 enable us to achieve our goal of raising One Million Dollars in outright and legacy gifts to support of the great work of The Rotary Foundation.

This Zone-wide event will be only the second dinner of its type held in the Rotary World – the first will be held in our neighboring Zone 33 in October, 2013. District 6960, led by Governor Tim Milligan and District Rotary Foundation Chair PDG Steve Schlueter have graciously agreed to host what is certain to be a spectacular evening. The event will be held at a soon-to-be announced venue in the Sarasota area; information regarding accommodations will also be forthcoming.

All donors making a new outright Major Gift or Major Gift Pledge to The Rotary Foundation in the amount of $10,000 or greater or every donor who makes a new or increased Bequest Society commitment in the amount of $10,000 or greater will be invited to attend this historic event.
