Dine at Lake Forest Bar and Grill Oct 24 for End Polio Now Rotary fundraiser

Monday, October 15, 2018



The Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park wishes to invite the community to join their 5th annual End Polio Now evening of dining at the Lake Forest Bar and Grill on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 from 5:00pm to 10:00pm for Rotary International’s World End Polio Now event.

The Lake Forest Bar and Grill will be donating 20 percent of all sales to our cause. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will also match all funds with $2.00 for every $1.00 donated.

Rotary International began immunizing millions of children against Polio in the 1970s, first in the Philippines and then in other high risk countries.

As a result, in 1988 Rotary International, the World Health Organization (WHO), UNICEF and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came together to launch the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.

More recently the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation joined the fight.

Today we continue to have three countries remaining with cases of Polio: Nigeria, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Please join us for this important annual Event.
