TEAM ROTARY helped Zion Lutheran Church and the Buffalo Community pack 80,000 meals on Sunday, April 29th, 2018.  Together, our Rotary group helped pack over 1100 meals, and the collective group a whopping 10,000 meals in a short 45 minute time span.  Scheduled for a two hour volunteer shift, we completed the task early when the Truckload for Life event sponsors announced that they had run out of boxes to pack any more meals!  Initially given the goal of 100,000 meal, the organizers revised the goal to 80,000 meals given the supplies on hand.  80,000 meals had been packed!  The meals are now on the way to hungry mouths across the globe and in the USA.
 
A huge THANK YOU to the following members of TEAM ROTARY:  
 
  • Rotary Club President Jason Nelson
  • Rotarian Christine Husom and Elizabeth Husom
  • Rotarian Mark Kaminski and LeighAnn Kaminski
  • Rotarian Kris Dirks, Laura Dirks and Ryan Dirks
  • Rotarian Laura Barta-Lindquist and Logan Lindquist
  • Rotarian Jason Chalupnik, Tommy Chalupnik and Danny Chalupnik

Our Buffalo Rotary Foundation/Club partnered with two other Rotary Clubs, the Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Club, and St. Cloud Rotary Club, to send school supplies down to Guatemala for the Common Hope students.  
 
There is a team in Guatemala right now, and they will deliver some of these supplies.  They sent us a link below to follow their trip through their photo diary.

And Oh, What A Night it was!!! This year's annual Buffalo Rotary Car Raffle Fundraiser was filled with disco balls, platform shoes, and bell-bottom pants. Our members were able to sell all 400 tickets, making the evening a successful sold-out event.
 
The Car Raffle Fundraiser remains to be the biggest fundraising event for the Buffalo Rotary. 100% of all funds raised at the event are donated back to our local and international communities. Through this fundraiser, we are able to to help programs, such as: Toys For Tots, Buffalo Food Shelf, Beds For Kids, Local school scholarships, Adopt A Family, Concerts in the Park, Fishing Klinic for Kids, Wright County Safe Communities, Mentorship Programs, Instrument Trail in the Park, Timber Bay, Capable Partners, Let's Go Fishing, Student Exchange Program, and many more community projects. 
 
We appreciate all of the volunteers who made this night so fantastic. Extra special thanks to Pat Michalicek, Shawn Corbin, and Scott Goodmanson for their work in planning and executing the evening.
 
Congratulations to the seven winners who all shared a piece of the $10,000 prize, taking home $1,428.57 each.
