Thank you to everyone who volunteered at Ronald McDonald House last week! It was a very successful event.
Ms Tapper will be promoting her personal platform, “Amaze Me,” a mentoring initiative designed to encourage individuals to become mentors in an effort to address our country’s mentoring gap. She hopes to partner as Miss New York with iMentor, the Mentoring Partnership of New York and Mentor Connect to help spread this message to various nonprofit organizations, schools and corporations across the state of New York.
This meeting will be held at Club Quarters on the corner of William and Pine Street (map) from 6pm-9pm.
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!

Clear your calendar – It’s going down! Rotary Club of Wall Street Bowling kicks off on April 21st, and you’re invited to take part in the festivities. Frames Bowling Lounge (550 9th Avenue) is our meeting spot for a night of fun and excitement. Come one, come all, bring a guest, and hang loose. This is going to be epic!
Please join The Rotary Club of Wall Street, The Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club and Rotoract Club of Pace University for an evening of (somewhat) competitive Bowling and Fundraiser Social
FRAMES Bowling Lounge generously offers us a package deal for $33 per bowler which includes Bowling from 7pm to 9pm along with:
-A DJ will surround you with the music and accompanying videos
-A pair of bowling shoes
-A first round of shared Party Food Platters (e.g. Angus, Mahi Mahi, & Veggie Sliders; Spring Rolls; Stuffed Mushrooms)
-An first round of huge towers of specialty beer shared with teammates
-Additional drinks and food may be ordered from cocktail waitresses in the reserved adjacent lounge and Pool Table Game Room.
This event was lots of fun last year and again we will mingle, battle and bowl. We are forming teams of 7 Bowlers (or more if necessary) comprised of Rotarians and their friends as “Ringers”. We invite those who do not want to bowl to socialize and cheer on their friends as they compete for trophies awarded to the Highest Score (and for some of us Lowest Score). Bring as many friends as you would like. Deposits are now being accepted to reserve a lane for each team.
All proceeds from a raffle will be donated to support Doctors Without Borders.

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.
