On Tuesday, October 24th nearly 60 Rotarians and friends from District 7910 showed up at Revolution Hall in Lexington, MA to help eradicate polio. In our small sliver of the world, we did our best to participate in a fun and unique way....by drinking beer!

It was a beautiful autumn evening in New England with unusually warm weather which was perfect. Craft Food Hall has a gorgeous beer garden that they donated for the cause as well.
Rotarians and friends enjoyed pints of beer from the beer wall which allowed them to pour their own beers. A giant inflatable Rotary Wheel was positioned for all to see. There was a table with information regarding how Rotary has helped end polio around the globe and how you can get involved. 

SERVPRO had a table giving out free swag and information regarding their services. 
Attendees spent hours enjoying each other's company, networking, and enjoying cold pints of beer. Many Rotarians reflected on how well the event went and wanted to replicate it in their own towns next year. Thank you to everyone who made it happen, you are an inspiration!

A collaborative effort between 8 Rotary Clubs, SERVPRO, and Craft Food Halls to raise funds which will be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. 

One of the driving missions of Rotary Worldwide is the eradication of polio and on October 24th, World Polio Day, clubs across the world raise funds for the cause.

The participating clubs donated $100 to the fund and in return, Craft Food Halls generously donated a $50 gift card to spend on beer. SERVPRO then donated $1 per pint sold which totaled $115. 

Additionally, Rotarians and friends made direct donations as well, and at the time of writing total donations are over $1k with more expected. With the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation match we generated over $3k to help end polio!
