A little bit of snow can’t stop LFP Rotary!!! 

The Lake Forest Park Rotary Auction, Run for the Roses, was held February 23, 2019. 

The event had to be postponed for two weeks because of Snowmageddon, but the enthusiasm wasn’t lost. Inglewood Golf Club was filled with 170 community leaders, Rotary members and supporters, all in their best Derby attire. A good time was had by all with lots of wine, raffles and prizes, silent auction, Dinner and Live auction.

It was high energy fun, netting over $117,000 for the works of the LFP Rotary Charitable Foundation budget for next year! Raise the Paddle highlighted Disadvantaged and the Homeless among the many other projects and alone brought in $37,525 in cash donations.

  • Youth and Education Services $29,500, featuring the Shoreline School District and Scholarships: and
