The Rotary Club of Des Moines announced this week that over $50,000 – a new record – was raised at the 8th Annual Poverty Bay Wine Festival, which was held at the Landmark Event Center March 2-4 (The Waterland Blog was proud to be a Sponsor).
Over 1,800 people attended the festival, and proceeds raised will be used to fund local community and international projects during the 2012-13 Rotary calendar year. Past projects funded include the 3rd Grade Dictionary Project, Des Moines Park & Recreation after school programs, Des Moines Food Bank, Highline Community College Scholarships and Rotary First Harvest.
“Thank you again for your support of the Rotary Club of Des Moines and for all that you do to make our community a better place to live and work,” the Rotary said. “We look forward to seeing you all at the 9th Annual Poverty Bay Wine Festival!”
The Rotary Club would also like to extend a special thanks to our Event Sponsors who partnered with us:
- Powell Homes
- Landmark Event Center
- Waterland Blog
Their contribution and support was key to our success!
