The Rotary Club of Carbondale (Noon) to Hold Pints for Polio Event at Buckwater Brew Works & Whiskey House
The club invites the community to join them as they raise money on World Polio Day, Tuesday, October 24. Pints for Polio will be held at Buckwater Brew Works & Whiskey House, 213 East Main Street in Carbondale. For every pint of beer purchased between 3:00 p.m. and midnight that evening, $1 will go to the World Polio Fund.
October is Polio Awareness month, and one of the pillars of Rotary International is eradicating the disease globally. Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative have made great strides to reduce polio cases by 99.9% worldwide over the past 35 years, and we’ve reduced the circulation of wild polio to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
“I am pleased to recognize this progress. However, I ask everyone to help us finish the job and end polio for good to ensure that this paralyzing disease does not return to polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk,” said club president, Cindy Buys.
The club is grateful for the generous support of Buckwater Brew Works & Whiskey House. If you’re not able to attend the event or would just to make a contribution to our efforts, you can make an online donation through the link:
