“When you live in a community like Winter Park, it comes with a responsibility to support those in need.” says Anne Sallee, president of the Winter Park Rotary Club. “The COVID-19 global pandemic continues to impact local nonprofits who address the communities underserved. That is why we are excited to partner with The American Fundraising Foundation to host this auction. Donations from this event will help programs such as stocking food pantries at Killarney and WPHS supporting dementia caregivers and providing education programs for local schools.”
The Rotary Club of Winter Park mission is “Service Above Self.” Funds raised during their annual “Chili for Charity” event go to the Club’s charitable foundation and support over 30 local nonprofits. In 2021 The Foundation distributed more than $113,000 in grants to local charities to help them achieve their mission and goals to support the underserved children, families, and residents.
