FEATURE

Guinness Record with "World's Biggest Commercial"

To help raise much-needed funds and public awareness for the global effort to eradicate polio, Rotary has collected more than 100,000 messages of support from celebrities, world leaders, and regular "folks next door," all of whom have added their names and photos to "The World's Biggest Commercial," an ever-growing public service announcement on the End Polio Now website that also received Guinness World Record recognition as Largest Photo Awareness Campaign.

This October the 24th is End Polio Day

CLUB ACTIVITIES

Mouthful of Red

This wine aged to perfection under cork, this surprisingly full bodied merlot will delight the most distinguished of quaffers. Violent crimson in color and hints of dragon fruit on the mid pallet, perfectly complimenting the subtle oak that has surprising length. J & K award 94 points and drink now.  It's exceptional value will leave you wanting to support our next great cause! $100 a case! Jump in now as we only have 20 left! Order with Secretary Kaitlin (secretaryrckt@gmail.com

Proceeds towards our Visayas Community Medical Centre in Cebu to purchase hospital mattresses and linen. This is our second part of our program in partnership with St Andrews Hospital and Donations in Kind after we sent two shipping containers of medical equipment of theatre instruments, hospital beds, wheel chairs, shower chairs and a wealth of other items last March. Cebu was one of the areas devastated by Typhoon Haiyan, and is still in dire need of materials for its rebuilding and rehabilitation.

$100 per case. Contact us secretaryrckt@gmail.com
