Rotary Club of Kirksville - Cynthia and Bill Kelly;
Heart to Heart International
Program: The Reverse Raffle
Bill and Cynthia told us that Heart to Heart International began in 1992 as a one-time aid event, and Rotary has been a part of the organization from the very beginning. The initial response was so overwhelmingly supportive that the group decided to organize as an ongoing organization and has responded to disasters in 130 countries. The largest part of their work is delivering medical supplies and pharmaceuticals.  See the flyer below for more details on Heart to Heart International.


Terry C. gave a brief overview of the revenue generated at the reverse raffle.  We have earned more money every year we have held this event since its inaugural run in 2013.  This year we look to net roughly $25,000 in profit.  Exact figures will be coming soon.  Thanks to all for your support of this event.  FYI - Elsie sold 25 tickets and Karla sold 18 this year.  Great job Elsie and Karla!
Blessing Bowl: Karla Dwyer - absent!
