Through your generous support along with those of our outstanding community, the event was a great success. During the evening, it was announced that a site in Port Perry has been purchased for the new Oak Ridges Hospice of Durham. The former Immaculate Conception Catholic School will be transformed into the region’s first residential end-of-life facility. The gala raised over $38,000, which will enable the club to meet its commitment of $100,000 to the project over the next year. The club has also made an additional pledge of $50,000. The next big event for the club is the 2nd Annual Rotary Rib Fest to be held in Palmer Park on August 4, 5 and 6. Hope to see you there. Once again, thank you.
