Our world has changed a lot in the last 4 months. But there are a few things that have remained constant: People can change the world and the needs of children and the hungry in our community. Our annual Brats and Bags fundraiser supports the local Boys and Girls Club and Midwest Foodbank. At this time both of those charities are seeing an increasing need for the services they provide, as kids need a safe place to be and more members of our community become food insecure. While we enjoy the camaraderie and visibility our annual event provides, let us never forget that its end goal is to improve the lives of those in our community.
This year, our event needs to shift. For the safety of all concerned, we will not be holding the bags tournament portion of the event for this year. While it is a highlight for us, after applying the four way test we found we could not safely, and in good conscious, hold such a gathering. Our brat lunch is also shifting from a gathering lunch event to drive thru and delivery only event. Even with these changes, we still NEED you to participate. You can donate or purchase a brat lunch through this link: https://bnsunriserotarybratlunchfundraiser.ezevent.com/
We look forward to resuming the fun and festivities of this event in 2021, however we cannot forget about those in need in 2020.
