A few weeks ago the Abbotsford Hospice received $29,000 for Holmberg House from the club thanks to the Rotary Club’s successful Million Dollar Hole-in-One event held this past June. Fundraising dollars have now been given back to the community with thanks to the sponsors, donors, volunteers and participants who support the Hole-in-One event.

The Cyrus Centre got $3,800 to purchase a new washing machine and dryer for Babich House and a 10 x 10 tent to assist them with fundraising and social events.
The Reach Gallery Museum received $2,000 to develop interactive and fun arts and heritage learning kits for children, youth and families, including adults with disabilities.
The Raven’s Moon Resource Society received $1,000 to purchase computer peripherals and software to support residents to increase computer skills, access the internet and create resumes.
