A portion of the proceeds from this event will be dedicated to supporting the Carriage Barn Arts Center and the Rotary Club’s End Polio Campaign. Since 1985, Rotary International, along with our partners, The World Health Organization, the Gates Foundation and national governments throughout the world, has immunized 2.5 billion children and reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent: from 350,000 per year to a handful. During this fundraiser, the Carriage Barn Arts Center will be exhibiting Va Va Vroom! The Art of the Vehicle.
The Rotary Club of New Canaan is an organization of business and professional leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace. The Rotary Club of New Canaan embraces the Rotary motto “Service Above Self” through its numerous service projects during the year.
