Today’s Program
Rotary Giving Assembly as organized by The Rotary Giving Advisory Committee, Brandee Ambrosia, Bobbi Allen, Bill Jansen, Betty Bennett, Caitlyn Garrison, John Fink.
 
Bobbi  Allen shared that originally our members recommended 24 organizations as possible worthy candidates for donations from Rotary of Auburn this year. The committee  members used a set criteria to select the 12 finalists presented as candidates for the members to vote on today. 
 
Every Rotary member was given 5 votes in the form of play money to cast toward the beneficiaries of their choice.  Before the members voted, some members took theopportunity to trade in one of their  funny money votes for a 30 second time slot to speak to everyone with the microphone, to advocate for the charity of their choice.  
 
After the program, each members voted for 5 of their top choices by placing their funny money into an envelope for that charity. The Rotary Giving Committee will return the final results to the club soon.
