The Rotary Club of West Orange holds two or three major fundraisers during the year in order to raise money for all of the Community Service Awards, the Student Scholarship Awards as well as many other projects both local and international in scope.
The most important fundraiser is our Spring Annual Taste of the World event. We also run a Super 50:50 Raffle and Super Golf Raffle as well as running the concession stand at the Town's July 4th Festivities and the Halloween Events.
When you buy a raffle ticket, purchase a Taste ticket or buy a hot dog and a soda on July 4 or at the Halloween Events, you are supporting YOUR local Rotary Club and we in turn, support YOU. ALL Rotarians are volunteers and all profits go directly back to the community, the student in financial need and many international service projects throughout the world.
