Plan for dinner out on Oct 24 to support Rotary fundraiser to end polio

Wednesday, October 16, 2019


Buy dinner at Lake Forest Bar and Grill on World Polio Day Thursday, October 24, 2019 and 20% will go to the Rotary project to End Polio Now.

Lake Forest Park Rotary has been deeply involved in the International Rotary project to end polio. Several members have traveled to Africa to personally help immunize babies.

They are very close to their goal.

Since 1988, there has been a worldwide reduction in polio cases of 99.9%. For more than two years, there have been wild polio cases in only two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan. 

The fight to end polio is led by the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), which includes Rotary, UNICEF, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and governments of the world, with the support of many others around the globe.

And now, we have the chance to help, just by eating dinner!
