Thank you to all of the Rotarians and friends of Rotary throughout District 7070 !!

 I wanted to let you know - after collating the revenues from all our sources, the net proceeds from this year's Concert to Feed the Need in Durham are $20,120. (up from about $14,000 last year).

For every dollar donated, Feed the Need in Durham can distribute 7 dollars worth of food. That means with the funds generated by the concert, FTDN is able to distribute over $140,000 worth of food to our neighbours at a time when food insecurity has never been greater.

This was a true team effort. Six clubs in Durham and one in Toronto (thanks Bay-Bloor) stepped up this year as co-presenters of the event, which helps feed people across the region. I've never been prouder to be a Rotarian!

Thanks as well to all the generous sponsors - many of whom are club members as well.  And thanks of course to the musicians, without whom there is no concert. Congrats and thanks to all who made it happen! 

Hopefully, with whatever conditions bring, we're able to do it even better next year.
