Please join the Rotary Club of Wall Street NY for our Annual Film Screening & Fundraiser on Friday, November 6, 2015 from 6pm to 9pm at the SVA Theatre in Chelsea.
Haiti Entrepreneurship Camp began in 2014 in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, with the support of Rotary Club of Wall Street New York, Rotary Club de Delmas-Aeroporte, Devoted Servants and Lufthansa HelpAlliance. Their goal has been to foster development through Entrepreneurship; exchanging knowledge and building relationships with entrepreneurs to turn around struggling economies and empower them to develop prosperous independent communities.
The documentary entitled “Haiti Entrepreneurship Camp – Driving Business – Driving Future” will be approximately 30 minutes long (a trailer can be viewed here) and will be immediately followed by a panel discussion of Rotary’s views and position on the focus area: “Growing Local Economies – Economic Development.”
Your film ticket purchase allows entry to this film screening and panel discussion, including open bar and cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, and contains a tax-deductible donation (the tax deductible portion is the ticket price minus $15). You will receive a tax receipt via email upon purchase.
You can also directly donate to the Haiti Entrepreneurship Camp service project (your donation is fully tax-deductible) and you will receive a tax receipt via email upon purchase. The RCWS Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit corporation.
On April 28, RCWS is hosting a dinner at Ronald McDonald House of New York, which provides a temporary home-away-from-home for pediatric cancer patients and their families who travel to New York City for life-saving treatment.
Save the date and sign up on Volunteer Spot to be one of the RCWS volunteers participating in this dinner event. Providing a meal is an important part of supporting the children living at Ronald McDonald House of New York who are battling cancer and the families caring for them.
Ronald McDonald House is located at 405 East 73rd Street between York and 1st Avenues. Dinner service will begin at 6:30 pm (volunteers will need to arrive at least by 6:00 pm to help with the set up).
New York Cares Day Spring is a day of service in cooperation with New York Cares. Thousands of volunteers work together on volunteer projects that improve our communal backyard. By the end of the day, 70 parks, community gardens, and shorelines and green spaces across the five boroughs will be spruced up and ready for the arrival of spring.
On Saturday, April 18th from 9.30am to 2.00pm, thousands of volunteers will roll up their sleeves again to give New York City a spring greening during New York Cares Day Spring 2015. The Rotary Club of Metro NYC will be joining hands with Rotaract United Nations, the Rotary Club of Wall Street and other Rotarians as one Rotary Team – Rotary New York Joins Hands! On New York Cares Day Spring, we will clean up shorelines, restore garden beds, plant flowers and trees, paint benches, and remove invasive species in the community.
The Rotary Club of Wall Street New York invites you to a fundraiser for the Gift of Life Foundation taking place at Maggie’s Place Bar and Restaurant on September 24, 2014 from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Please join The Rotary Club of Wall Street on September 24th for our third Guest Bartender Night at Maggie’s Place, a fine eating and drinking establishment, located at 47th St. and Madison Ave. The format of the evening is an informal Social supporting a great cause, The Gift of Life Foundation.
For more than 30 years, Rotary Clubs have supported the Gift of Life International program. During this time, the equivalent of $500 million has been raised and more than 10,000 children, from over 60 countries, have been saved. We help fund a heart operation for a young child who is in dire need of an operation that is not available in their native community. We bring the child and the mother to NYC and provide housing for them in our homes. We provide financial assistance and work with local hospitals to provide heart surgeries at a significantly reduced rate by dedicated Health professionals. In the short 5 year history of our club we have assisted with surgeries for 2 Gift of Life children.
Please bring as many friends as you would like and join Rotarians, from the NYC Metro Area, and our friends to socialize and make new friends. There are no cover charges or raffles. Maggie’s Place has generously allowed us to collect all the tips that you would normally provide to the Bartenders. We have grand plans to multiply the proceeds, raised from the night, through matching grants from corporate sponsors and Rotary. So, your modest contribution will truly go a long way towards saving a young child’s life. The previous events were great fun and we expect a huge turnout this year. Please join us on September 24th from 6 pm to 9 pm and help us support a great cause.
