Peter Gilbert PDG of our district, a member of Preston Rotary was introduced by Kel Cocking. Peter talked about Rotary International District 9790 Million Dollar Dinner. He explained the system; we need 100 people to bequest US$10,000.00 each to reach our target.That is 1.6 Rotarians per club. The Rotary Foundation needs this money to achieve its aim of Doing Good in the World. Peter explained that many people don’t have that much money in cash, so this can be handled by bequests, or a codicil on your will; you can do all this by rewriting your will to leave a specific bequest to the Rotary
Foundation and you should always consult your solicitor. All donors will be invited to attend a Million Dollar Dinner, which will be a celebration of the fundraising campaign. All donors of US$10,000.00 will be presented with a crystal and unique pin, from the Bequest Society, on the night of the dinner (date to be advised).
