2019 Super Bowl Pool: The Rotary Foundation
The Super Bowl Pool is our Club’s biggest annual drive to raise funds for The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International (TRF), whose mission is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. Every Rotarian around the world is asked to donate to TRF every year. Super Bowl Pool winners receive a Paul Harris Fellowship.
