NOVEMBER 5, 2020 – Four Peaks Rotarians celebrated Halloween and World Polio Day on October 24 with a virtual social featuring a reverse raffle fundraiser that netted $6,400 for the Four Peaks Rotary Foundation. 




Elvira (Michelle Webb) and Father Scott (Scott Schlossberg) hosted the virtual event for members and ticket holders who attended via Zoom. Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit local organizations such as Bob’s Free Bikes, U.S. Vets, and Teacher of the Month as well as international projects like the Navajo Water Project and Casa Esperanza para Niños, an orphanage located in Hermosillo, Mexico. 

In a reverse raffle, the winning ticket is the last one drawn. Winners included one grand prize of $3,000 (which was split between the two remaining ticket holders), four $100 prizes to those holding the 20th, 40th, 60th, and 80th ticket drawn, and two $100 prizes to those whose losing tickets were randomly selected. 

World Polio Day celebrates the progress towards a polio-free world. Rotary International launched PolioPlus in 1985, a program designed to tackle global polio eradication through the mass vaccination of children. To date, the number of worldwide polio cases has declined more than 99%.

The Four Peaks Rotary Foundation is funded primarily by donations and work parties. Four Peaks Rotary Club of Fountain Hills, the major donor to the Foundation, meets twice monthly at 6:45 a.m. with adjournment at 8:00 a.m. Direct inquiries to: Four Peaks Foundation PO Box 18111, Fountain Hills, AZ 85269 or call Sue Henderschott 602-418-0821.
