Fundraiser to Benefit Humane Society and Rotary Club Foundation
|Sunday, January 31, 2021, 03:00pm
Humane Society members and supporters and other non-Rotarians are invited to join in.
The Zoom event will be a “Fact or Fiction” game, in which some of the participants tell three brief stories, with only one story being true. Participants and others who are present choose the story they think is true, and make a bid on it. Bids can range from zero dollars on up. If the selection of a true story is correct, the Rotary Club will contribute $10 to the Humane Society in that person’s name. If the choice is incorrect, that person will contribute the amount of his or her bid to the local Silver City Rotary Foundation, which uses the money for scholarships and other charitable projects.
This is the fourth time Rotary has hosted a “Fact or Fiction” game. The first two games raised $2,300 for PolioPlus, Rotary International’s program aimed at eradicating polio, a crippling disease that used to affect children around the world and is now only found in Afghanistan and Pakistan. "We held the third game just because the first two were so much fun,” says Lucy Falley, who coordinates the “Fact of Fiction” games. “We hope a lot of people will join in the fun this time and help out both the Humane Society and our Rotary Club’s many project beneficiaries, while they enjoy themselves.”
