The Rotary Club of Sun City West participated in the Automotive Restoration Club car show Feb. 10, with a pickleball raffle basket to help raise awareness and funds to promote the eradication of Polio around the world.
Helen Shadowens, of Sun City West, won the drawing since she is an avid pickleball player.
The Rotary Club is an international organization with clubs all around the world.
There are only seven active polio cases in the world now and they are in Pakistan and Afghanistan. As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Rotary has helped reduce polio cases by 99.9% since their first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
The Rotary Club welcomes men and women of all backgrounds and professions who want to serve and change lives.
Membership is made up of people from Sun City West as well as surrounding communities/neighborhoods (Surprise, The Grand, Corte Bella, Sun City, et al), both seasonal and full-time residents.
Each meeting includes a brief presentation by a Rotary member, community nonprofit or other organization or individual on a topic of interest to club members.
Through regular club programs, projects and neighborhood activities, members learn about the issues that face their communities and exchange ideas about how to take action to respond to them.
Fellowship and service are key for membership in the Rotary Club.
