The Burnsville Breakfast Rotary Club volunteered for the Prior Lake Lakefront Music Fest on Saturday, July 9th. which is hosted by the Rotary Club of Prior Lake. Some of the positions entailed ticketing, beverage service, and helping to keep the grounds clean in the VIP area of the event. We had an awesome day for weather and a turnout of over 18,000 people! This event nets nearly $330,000 in profits which is then turned back into the community and internationally to support various causes to help people in need and make their lives better!
     One of the main focuses of Rotary International is the eradication of polio worldwide which is unfortunately still a problem in some countries in the world. The Prior Lake Rotary Club's goal was to reach $33,334 in tips from all the various food & beverage stations so that they can get a two-to-one match of funds from the Bill Gates Foundation which would then provide $100,000 for polio eradication. I have no doubt that they'll meet that goal!
