Safe Travels To Our East Cobb Rotarians en route to the Honduras for our International Service Project, “Lunches for Learning”!
Our Club’s commitment to Service Above Self doesn’t stop at our neighborhood, county, our state or even our country’s borders! We believe service extends around the globe! The “Butterfly Effect” is real!
Affecting change - something as “simple” as providing a lunch to children so that they pursue their education into high school- creates more economic stability, and stronger, healthier communities -throughout our World Village.
Joe Murphey is one of several amazing Rotarians from our Club who is dedicating his time away from his family and profession to attend the graduations of the children in the program because he BELIEVES in the impact Lunches for Learning has on the economically challenged areas in the Honduras. If you ever have a second to chat with Joe about the beautiful results he has seen first hand, you cannot help but be moved.
Join us in supporting and cheering on Joe and our other selfless Rotarian family as they are our “boots on the ground” in the Honduras right now!!!
And if you can give a little - give a little - each gift is so appreciated to help Lunches for Learning continue to do its wonderful work!!
🍁🍂And we’re back from Fall break! (Whew! That was fun!) 🍁🍂
Now that we’re back, there’s a number of things we want to share with our friends far and wide... It’s quite a lot, so we are going to space these posts out over a few days... 😊
❤️Today’s post is a post of gratitude. ❤️
We remain so deeply appreciative for ALL of our community partners that made this year’s annual Dog Days 5K such an amazing success story!! As we are almost done settling all vendor accounts and receivables, we will be announcing the final number of monies raised shortly.
That being said, we are going to continue to spotlight the MANY wonderful community partners who contributed selflessly and generously to our fundraising efforts over the years and including this past year’s race.
One such individual and organization that had a profound impact on our race again this year was Dr. Ashish Patel of Dentistry at East Piedmont.
Dr. Patel believes in our 5K and the impact of the monies raised from it for local organizations. He believes in this event so much that every year, he sponsors runners to come participate in the race! He and his staff have attended the races, run the races, had booths at the races. He’s even made YouTube videos encouraging his patients and the entire community to attend!
Every year, his team roster and the total money he raises continues to swoop upward and this year, he and his Dentistry at East Piedmont team truly outdid themselves.
He came to our weekly meeting on September 18th to formally hand us the check that represented the total contribution amount made to this year’s race, including sponsoring over TWO-HUNDRED AND SEVENTY runners in the race. (Yes, that thud you hear was our collective jaws dropping!)
The amount of the check was that nice round number you see below - another jaw drop - yes, it was for $6,600. 😃
We in turn shared our humble and heartfelt thanks to Dr. Patel with a Dog Days themed “Bark & W(h)ine” gift basket, one of our signed Dog Days 5K St. Bernard art prints, and a hearty standing ovation from each and every member of the Rotary Club of East Cobb!
Thank You Again, Dr. Patel for your partnership, many kindesses, and belief in our Dog Days fundraising.
You and your wonderful Dentistry at East Piedmont team continue to be “leaders of the pack” and for that we are and will always be grateful! 😊🐾🐾🐶
