THE MIAMISBURG ROTARY CLUB’S 29TH ANNUAL ESTHER PHILHOWER (VIRTUAL) CHARITY AUCTION
 
          The Miamisburg Rotary Club was Chartered in 1922 and has continually built on a strong tradition of serving our community. We have supported numerous local organizations and events with funding and volunteer service, in addition to supporting the aims of Rotary International.
          Since our first Charity Auction in the 1992-93 Rotary year, our dedicated Rotarians and supporters have raised over $250,000.00.  Those funds have, in-turn, been donated to the Miamisburg Rotary Club Charitable Trust Fund and the Rotary Foundation’s Annual Fund and Polio Plus.
          This year more than EVER the Miamisburg Rotary needs your help.  In 2020 we were forced to cancel two of our major fundraisers.  Our auction was normally held at the Baum Opera House, until this year.  Covid-19 has forced us all to make changes to events. 
          In this year’s “virtual” auction format, we will be offering many quality items up for bid over a two-week period beginning Friday 21 May 2021 at 12:00pm (EDT) through Thursday 3 June 2021 at 7:00pm (EDT).
          We welcome additional item donations from individuals and businesses.  To donate items, please contact:
                   Club Secretary (barry.rotary@earthlink.net) - or -
                   Club Treasurer (judy@mrrealestate.us)
