The Fundraising Committee provides additional fundraising support to club activities so that our projects in the local and international communities can be supported.  This year the Rotary Club of Emerald and District is focusing more on local needs as the long term impact of COVID19 impacts families in the local area.

The Fundraising Committee has started the year with a number of great ideas to raise funds that do not entail face to face contact - not an easy task.  We are working closely with the committee chairs of our Avenues of Service to augment their program needs and are hopeful Cocktails on the Catwalk will materialise in 2021. 
Although we have been limited by lock-down in 2020, the Fundraising Committee organised a virtual Wine and Cheese evening for our members with the kind support of Olinda Cellars - providing wine at a sponsorship rate and contributing to the fundraising total by giving the club a % of post event sales.  Quite remarkable when they must  have been doing it tough at the time as well.  The event raised approximately $600.  Bags with goodies and tastings of 4 wines were distributed within COVID restrictions and a great evening was had by us all.
A Cup Day virtual Posh Picnic was organised as well - we are undaunted with our commitment to continue to raise funds under difficult circumstances.
