BW Rotaract Club partnered with Rotaractors in Paraguay and the Rotary Club of San Lorenzo to raise funds for a mammograph machine for the local hospital. San Lorenzo Rotarians zoomed in for the fundraiser. The goal of the annual Telethon on Friday, Dec. 2 was to raise $1,000. The online fundraiser actually earned $1,500 and with more donations expected later this week.
The Telethon opened with a tribute to past Berea Rotary president Bob Huge, who also was co-chair of the District's Short-Term Youth Exchange Program. He arranged for Rotaract President Kaylee McKee to visit Paraguay, when she was a high school student. That led to the Telethon fundraiser.
One of the highlights was the Lip Sync Contest. Rotaract adviser Marc West nails
 "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston. Rotaractors also saluted Marc for his 25 years as a Rotarian.
Once the $700 mark was reached, the Cake Decorating Contest resulted in a win for Christina Psellas.
Rotaract President Kaylee McKee was rewarded for all her hard work by getting a pie in the face. She also was egged. Good job, Lulu! Maddie, too!! Maddie put together the awesome videos.
