Topeka West Rotary Club June 2018 Newsletter


The Topeka West Rotary Club held its first Grocery Grab fundraising event on April 28th at the Topeka Hy-Vee store and it was our most successful fundraiser to date.  The Club spent six weeks selling tickets, both at the store and to companies and other individuals prior to the event.  Total ticket sales went very well, particularly for our first try for this type of event. 

The Club wants to thank Ed Coulter, with the Shawnee Mission Rotary Club, for his guidance and sharing of information regarding his Club's Grocery Grabs.  A great example of Clubs working together to achieve common goals.  The net funds raised will be used to purchase dictionaries for third grade students and teachers in eleven area elementary schools and for grants to local charities.

The Club donated $150 for hygiene kits in support of the Celebration of 30 Years of Women in Rotary and contributed $100 to the Public Image campaign that District 5710 is conducting in collaboration with Districts 5670, 6040 and 5690.

Our members answered the challenge to achieve Star Club status again this year by obtaining the minimum average donation of $100 per member to The Foundation.  Pledges have also been made by members for additional donations that will place us beyond the minimum per member.
