This is the 14th consecutive year that the group has organized this charitable fundraiser. 100% of the Derby profits goes to local charities.

Rotarians traditionally develop community service projects to address many of today’s most critical issues, especially children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy and violence. Rotary Club members worldwide work to achieve the key Rotary objective of “Service above Self.”
