Car Parking Fundraiser

There are always worthy causes that our Rotary club wants to support and we get a lot of satisfaction in being able to help. But that means we have to raise funds , and our club has a policy of working for the funds we raise. Staffing the carparking and marshalling at various events is one of the ways we raise funds - for triathlons, charity days, and community event functions. Most recently the club staffed the parking for a concert at Werribee Park - Legends of Rock - where 14 members of the club did 4- 5 hour shifts - greeting people with a smile and dispatching them in a similar manner. From this project we raised sufficient funds to provide a weekly breakfast program for 60 children in the primary and secondary schools in a country town that has been doing it tough through a long drought and then a flood. This is one of the many local, national, and international projects in which the club is involved. If you want to make a difference in the community, enquire about joining the Rotary club near you.
