About Our Auction
Charlotte International Rotary Club (CIRC), dedicated to local action and global impact, is recognizing a Charlottean and a District Rotarian making significant contributions to Rotary International's seven areas of focus.
Manny Ohonme is the Founder of Samaritan's Feet whose mission is to provide shoes and socks to children in need, worldwide. Kevin Kendrick, Assistant District Governor, has created multiple service opportunities for District Rotarians in healthcare, nutrition, and baby care.
The Sixth Annual Fundraising Gala will present recognition awards to Manny and Kevin, illustrate their contributions, and have them discuss their work. The Gala is being hosted at Carmel Country Club and will include a reception, dinner, dessert, and the awards ceremony.

About Rotary International
To create Culture understandings, bring awareness to international causes, and develop personal and professional relationships.
Proceeds from the auctions and donations will be used to support CIRC projects.
CIRC has established a relationship with a hospital in South Sudan, performing ocular surgeries, in partnership with CureBlindness.com. South Sudan is both the newest and the poorest nation in the world. Ocular surgeries not only improve the life of individual patients, but typically free up three caregivers to become income producers for their families.
This particular project builds on past efforts and positions the hospital for CIRC’s future medical initiatives.
