Past President Jerry Sarver accepted the Rotary International Public Relations Award recognizing a successful launch campaign to promote awareness and understanding of Rotary.
The 19th Annual VanLandingham Rotary Auction will be held February 24, 2013. Since its inception, this community-wide event has raised over $1,000,000 to benefit various Lowcountry children’s charities including $225,000 to the Boys and Girls Club of Hilton Head Island, $350,000 to The Children’s Center, and most recently the proceeds from the 2012 Auction allowed us to fulfill our $100,000 pledge to Volunteers In Medicine’s (“VIM”) Pediatric Dental Clinic.
Auction 2013’s net proceeds will be used to better ensure academic success for up to 200 local at risk children by creating a “Virtual Learning Center” in the Oaks neighborhood; supporting Neighborhood Outreach Connection’s flagship afterschool and summer school computer based education program.
Your participation in Auction 2013 as a Corporate Sponsor or Donor is essential to our success in funding our pledge. Please contact a Rotarian or us at www.vlrauction.com to discuss your participation in this truly “Win Win” event!
