Rotary Club of Colleyville – Local Community Support
Colleyville Rotarians are business leaders, entrepreneurs and community leaders who want to contribute and serve. We promote Ethics, Leadership and Service.
Our annual signature event is Dancing for the Stars, a community-wide fundraiser. Since 2010, our Dancing for the Stars event has raised over $200,000 for local and international causes.
One of our primary causes is the Grapevine Colleyville Education Foundation. In total, we have contributed over $160,000 to the Foundation, making us its all-time leading donor.
The Rotary Club of Colleyville has been serving the greater Colleyville area since 1985.
Polio Plus – Eradicating Polio
Polio Plus is Rotary’s on-going campaign to eradicate polio. Teaming with the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, UNICEF, national governments and organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we are on the verge of eradicating this crippling disease.
Colleyville Local Volunteer Efforts
Behind the scenes you will find us waiting tables at the GCISD New Educators Luncheon, serving meals at the Union Gospel Mission, contributing to after school programs for children, sponsoring our annual 4-Way Speech contest for Colleyville Heritage high school students or leading a sing-along for seniors.
Our club volunteers to assist the Immunization Collaboration of Tarrant County. We collect used eyeglasses for the Alcon Medical Missions Program to be distributed to those in need in third world countries.
Additionally, we collect used hearing aids to be reconditioned for the use of the underprivileged by the Callier Center for Communication Disorders at the University of Texas at Dallas.
