The 23rd Annual Rotary Online Auction is back! Milton Rotary is joining forces with seven other Rotary clubs in Kitchener, Burlington, Mississauga (Meadowvale & West), Georgetown and Oakville (x2) to host an online auction. This year's auction is live from November 5-19, 2022. This is the perfect opportunity to get a great deal, or maybe pick up some Christmas gifts, while giving back directly to your community. The funds raised go directly back into the (mainly youth-focused) programs Milton Rotary supports. Past examples include: Milton high school scholarships, bursaries, international youth exchanges, youth leadership training, PPE for front line workers, Milton Salvation Army Food Bank, Milton District Hospital, global polio eradication efforts, and much more.
 
Help us, help others. In the coming weeks our members will be going around to businesses in the community looking for donations or sponsors. We would love to have your support. By donating an auction item, becoming a sponsor, or through personal donations, you gain advertising in Halton, Peel and Waterloo Regions. Tax receipts are available to personal donors, while businesses who sponsor or donate an item can generally write it off as an advertising expense based on the exposure gained through our auction website.
 
If you would like any more information, or want to find out more, reach out to us at MiltonRotary7080 (at) gmail.com

What is Rotary?

Rotary is a global network of community volunteers. Rotary members are business, professional, and community leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Over 32,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas initiate service projects to address today’s challenges, including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, and environmental concerns.
