The Rotary Chapter of Lynchburg-Morning donated over $32,000 to local organizations at its regular weekly meeting on Thursday, July 13, 2017.
Each year, Lynchburg-Morning Rotary conducts a golf tournament raising funds for local organizations which make a discernible and visible impact on our community.
The 2017 beneficiaries include, but not limited to, the YWCA of Central Virginia’s YWLead Program ($6,000), Rise Against Hunger ($3,000), and Vector Space ($1,000) to fund intern scholarships for area high school students. Remaining proceeds will be will be directed to the Greater Lynchburg Community Trust in order to establish a named fund on behalf of the Lynchburg Morning Rotary club.
Among the recurring annual beneficiaries were the Lynchburg Morning Rotary Foundation and Polio Plus ($6,000), the Lynchburg Humane Society (2,500), the annual Dictionary Project ($2,000), and the Free Clinic of Central Virginia and MS Bike Tour ($1,000).
We would like to offer particular thanks to Duke Mann, Jim Hines, Wells Duffy at the Cavalier, PFG, Virginia Eagle Distributing, and Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company for their support and participation in what proved to be a fun and effective fundraising event. Here's to another year of successful fundraising!
