Rotary Club donates $15,000 to Grand Haven Schools Foundation

The members of the Rotary Club of Grand Haven took a new approach to the public service projects they are working on - trading in the brick and mortar for something different in an effort to help young children entering the Grand Haven Area Public Schools system. Rotary's new fundraising benefit held June 30, "A D'Vine Event,' generated $15,000 for the Grand Haven Schools Foundation. "In the past, Rotary has picked a real brick-and-mortar type of project,' Grand Haven City Manager Pat McGinnis said.

These projects have included the ski lodge at Mulligan’s Hollow, the Grand Haven Farmers Market and the new splash pad under construction at the waterfront.

According to McGinnis, the money raised by “A D’Vine Event” will be used to fund early childhood education scholarships for the Grand Haven Preschool Development Program. This will ensure funding for 24 children, he said.

McGinnis said a 5K walk/run is planned for February 2012, with proceeds directed to the school foundation once again to benefit scholarships for young children.
