Gift of Life Presentation by Dick Beattie & Jack DeStefanoDecember 6, 2016 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Conceived in 1974, the "Gift of Life" idea developed into one of Rotary s most compassionate and heart-warming programs, encompassing people of "Good Will " throughout the United States and the entire world. Our District #7490 has sponsored 940 children from all over the world. Most of the District's Rotary clubs have participated and we have also received excellent cooperation from other community organizations and friends of Rotary. There are approximately 50 Rotary Districts with Gift of Life programs and more than 15,000 children have been given "The Gift of Life".
Funds are needed to pay for medical services, equipment, educational services and transportation for our kids. Your generous contributions in time and money are needed. Funds are used directly for the benefit and support of "Gift of Life" children. We have served children from many areas of the world where needed cardiovascular procedures for children are not available. Our doctors have traveled worldwide to educate local physicians in their procedures. The program has touched thousands of lives and they become America's best ambassadors. "Gift of Life" is truly a success but our work is not complete, the need is great and the opportunity exists. With your support of our fundraising efforts and your assistance with the children, together, child by child, we will build a healthier and more peaceful world.
