Movie Night Polio Fundraiser
March 14, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$25
The Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland Movie Night Polio Fundraiser
The Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland in partnership with the Windsor International Film Festival (WIFF) are pleased to announce A Rotary Polio Fundraiser Event – Join us for a Private Screening of the Acclaimed Movie “Breathe”.
Hear from our special guest speakers, two of our local Rotary Polio Immunization Team, Aruna and Shiva Koushik, about their recent polio eradication mission to Pakistan. Then, enjoy the movie “Breathe” about the triumphs of a remarkable man through his real-life story with a Polio diagnosis.
The evening will spotlight Rotary’s leadership role in the eradication of Polio. This will be only the second disease in history, after small pox, to be eradicated. Net proceeds will go towards Rotary’s End Polio Now – Make History Today campaign and will be matched two-to-one by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Thirty years ago, there were more than 350-thousand cases of wild polio virus per year. Last year there were twenty-two and this year to date only three. A polio free world is in sight and you can help us cross the finish line. By supporting this event, patrons will be part of providing life-saving immunizations to millions of children. The three remaining endemic countries are Afghanistan, Pakistan and Nigeria.
Dates and times of events are subject change. Please contact organizers to confirm details.
