Club: Rotary Club de Santa Cruz do Sul
Event: Fundraising dinner Noite de Massas, Queijos e Vinhos, with Supermercado Müller, on Aug. 18, 2017
Contribution to the polio plus fund: R$154,90 = US$49.33, transformed in US$147.99, thanks to the matching of the Gates Foundation, being enough to vaccinate 246 children.
Message )from Claudete Sulzbacher): This event was destined to help the local public old age home and to Rotaract, for a project at Hospital Ana Nery, where they are building a garden for the families and care takers of the patients with cancer. Besides this, guests were invited to help with any amount, to help to end polio, during the dinner. Our thanks for their generosity. Thanks to the Supermarket Müller, and for their suppliers that donated the items for the dinner like past, cheese, water, grape juices and wines. Thanks to president Marcelo Peixoto e and fellow Gustavo Schneider for allowing us to ask for donations. And thanks to the little Scout girl Maria Eduarda who helped us to collect the donations. Unfortunately no pictures as she was asked to help in the kind of raffle and then her parents had to leave… without a picture.
Thanks to Marlene Lopes for helping to count the donations… and for Rosangela Mazzuco who sent me the pictures.
