The Rotary Club of Harlem, joined by Chinatown, Inwood, Metro NYC, New York, Riverdale, and Wall Street hope you can join us to raise money for a good cause and have a good time.
Come with the kids or come by yourself to enjoy all you can eat food & drinks, friendly competition with Olympic style games, medals, BBQ contest, raffles, prizes and more. The 1st annual Rotary BBQ Olympics will be an action-packed, fun-filled day the whole family will enjoy. From individual challenges to group team relays you have the chance to test your will, your skill, and your might against Rotarians from across the city.
So you think you can cook? Enroll in our BBQ cook-off contest and compete with some of the best chefs in the district. Whether you like brisket, chicken, pork shoulder, or ribs you’ll have a chance to enter your best dish for judging. The contest form can be found below.
Proceeds from this event will be going to Education Clinic, Inc. The Clinic is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which is dedicated to providing educational and other programs to children with the conviction that education and opportunity are inextricably linked. Founded in 1979, when programs were initiated in Public School 92 and St. Aloysius, The Clinic, has since expanded from a small community based organization into a thriving education clinic which serves children from ages 3 to 21, from all the boroughs of the city, Nassau, Rockland, and Westchester counties, and Northern New Jersey. Every year The Clinic expands its enrollment and programs to accommodate the needs of the community. Affectionately known as “The Clinic”, The Education Clinic Inc. can be summed up in one simple word, Opportunity.
Funds collected on Eventbrite will be going to the Rotary Club of Wall Street (a 501c4 non-profit organization), passed on to The Clinic, and will NOT be tax-deductible. The Rotary Club of Wall Street is hosting this Eventbrite page for the benefit of this event.
