Centenary of The Rotary Foundation

Bob was pleased to host a reception to mark the Centanary of The Rotary Foundation, which is an initiative dedicated to the global eradication of polio. It was named the 2016 Outstanding Foundation in the world by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) and Rotary has contributed more than $1.9 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect more than two billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. Today polio is on the verge of becoming only the second human disease ever to be eliminated after smallpox, with a 99.9 percent decrease in cases since the initiative began.
