North Coast Rotary Auction
Welcome to our auction! We are raising money for the many youth initiatives we support. This auction will raise funds for three scholarships awarded to graduating seniors. We fund at least seven every year. We currently need $7,000 for next year’s awardees, but we would like to increase the number of scholarships we give. So start bidding! Have Fun! Thank you for your help and support.
About North Coast Rotary
Welcome to the North Coast Rotary auction! Our Rotary Club serves the communities of Avon, Avon Lake, Sheffield and Sheffield Lake, Ohio.
During the 2019/2020 Rotary year we leveraged and doubled a Rotary District grant that contributed to the Avon Story Book Trail. Over the year our 26 club members volunteered a total of 1000 hours, which included support for our community food pantry, Community Resource Services. Our Holiday projects included the “Little Dresses” project for Nicaraguan children and in various African locales and the collection of hundreds of gently-used books for Resource Centers International in Jamaica and Belize. And there is more.
We FOCUS ON YOUTH. Eighty percent of our efforts and support are directed toward youth in our four communities. Annually, we award scholarships to graduating seniors; send students to district and national leadership conferences; support students in living and studying abroad through Rotary Youth Exchange; and facilitate Four-Way Test speech (high school) and essay (junior high) contests. We sponsor and advise a Rotary Interact club at Brookside High School, promoting service above self (the Rotary motto), and organize Rotary’s STRIVE program, challenging high school students in the lower 25 percent of their class to improve their attendance, attitude, and academic standing.
In addition to sponsoring the youth programs North Coast Rotary provides PROGRAM SUPPORT in our communities in many other ways
