Cribs for Kids
Mini-Golf Tournament Fundraiser
Charlotte North Rotary holds fundraisers and provides hands-on service work for Heal Charlotte. The group furnishes housing and afterschool education, recreation, and sports program for the homeless and underprivileged youth.
Twice during the year, CNR members plant trees for Trees Charlotte. The goal is to restore the tree canopy in Charlotte. The club also holds fundraisers for the group.
Along with the Cribs for Kids Organization from Pittsburg, the club sponsors a Breadth of Life Stroll each year in Freedom Park. The purpose of Cribs for Kids is to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The group provides seminars on child care to new parents and gives free cribs to underprivileged families. All proceeds from this event go to Cribs for Kids.
Each year, Charlotte North Rotary sponsors a Mini-Golf Tournament at the High Seas Golf Center in Ballantyne. All proceeds from the event are donated to local charities. Participants with the lowest scores win prizes. The Public is invited to attend and participate.
