Since Rotary isn’t a charitable, religious or political
organization which receives funds from outside sources, our club
creates opportunities and events geared toward building our community
and raising funds to be used for projects around the world. Our
main fundraisers include our annual Luck of the Irish Raffle, The Red,
White & Blue Ball
and volunteering at the annual Lisle Eyes to the
in July. Our club receives a share of the
festival’s net proceeds based on the number of hours we work.
Plus, we’re always on the lookout for other ways to both raise
funds and serve our community, whether that be locally or globally.
