Assisting boaters, raising funds, enjoying the waterfront
Since 2006, the Burlington Sunrise Rotary has volunteered at the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival.  As a Club, we have two goals:
  1. Assist a fantastic event that raises funds for Vermont's Camp Ta-Kum-Ta (a year-round ‘camp’ experiences
    in a safe and loving environment for children who have or have had cancer) and empowers cancer patients
    and survivors.
  2. Raise funds for our Rotary club charities, including Burlington's chapter of Imagination Library.
You can find a brief story of our 2018 participation here and our 2017 participation here.  A hearty thanks to Alison Davis (food table) and Steve Gentile (Morgan Stanley dock assistance) for leading 2018's Rotary involvement (as well as leading many past years!).  Click here to see all the individual stories about our work with the Dragon Boat Festival.
Below is a video that captured the fun and empowering spirit of the 2016 event:
