Strike-Out Hunger is a Regional event spearheaded by a committee of the Garden State Rotary Club of Rotary International District 7505 and in conjunction with over 200 Rotary Clubs in six Districts from PA, NJ, DE and MD. As Regional Director of Strike-Out Hunger, I would like to invite you to participate in our 35th Annual Game on August 15, 2019 at 7:05 pm, as our Phillies play the Chicago Cubs. The success the Phillies have had selling tickets this year has made seating in some sections limited. Because of their commitment to Rotary, there will be plenty of good seats available. I urge you to get your ticket orders in early. Thanks to your participation, the RI Foundation has benefitted by over $1 million to help eradicate Polio, and thousands of pounds of food have been contributed to Local Food Banks. The Phillies will rebate $10.00 for every ticket sold by Rotary Clubs to the RI Foundation. The money will be contributed in the name of your Club and it will receive acknowledgement from the Rotary Foundation in that amount.All contributions to PolioPlus will be matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation $2 dollars for every $1 donated to Strike Out Hunger. We ask that everyone attending the game bring non-perishable food and deposit it in the drums at the ball park entrance. Come join RI President Mark Maloney and Rotarians from around the Delaware Valley for an evening of fun and fellowship.
