It’s time for the annual Boone Sunrise Rotary Fruit Sale! “Great fruit for a great cause” is the motto of this popular annual Rotary fundraiser. Every year, the club partners with Florida Indian River Groves in providing fresh citrus to our patrons. Funds from this project directly support Rotary projects in our local community as well as some very worthy international projects. As the club’s primary annual fundraiser, the program generates over $7,000 in support for many of the local and international programs described below. To order your fruit, CLICK HERE! Questions? E-mail Ben Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
