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. 
 
Fundraising isn't easy in the light of a difficult 2020 and will be a long haul 2021, but we keep raising funds as much as we can!

Current Activity

2021 Car Rally

It was terrific to see so may club members, family and friends turn up for our first Annual Car Rally in March.  We wended our way around the hills finding clues and pictures along the way ending at Rose Cottage for a scrumptous meal.
 
Congratulations to the winners - Ian and Jenny Wakefield and to our wooden spooners Vicki and Henk Van Den Bergen (we thought they would never arrive and as Vicki is President we were a little worried Shalini would have to take over the mantle earlier than June)!
 
The event raised much needed funds for the club and is a great way to enjoy the wonderful environment we live in.

Virtual Wine and Cheese Evening
Although we were 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.
