Our largest and most successful project is our Rotary House Lottery. 2018 was our 32nd annual fundraiser, and thanks to you we sold out our 12,000 tickets, our new record! The proceeds from the lottery are reinvested entirely in our community. To date, we have donated more than $5,000,000 to local charities. This includes a special $50,000 emergency donation to the flood relief fund following the wide-spread flooding in Thunder Bay in May 2012, and we met our $500,000 commitment to the Exceptional Cancer Care campaign at the Regional Health Sciences Foundation. None of this would have been possible without the support you, the members of our community, give us year after year. Thank you!
