The Annual Rotary Club of Shepherdstown Charity Ball
Each year, the Shepherdstown Rotary Club holds a Christmas fundraising event and donates all the proceeds to local public service organizations. Everyone in the community is invited to attend, and this is a signature Rotary celebration: it provides fellowship, food, and fun for all, while supporting important local charities.
Last year’s theme was “Our Ball, Your Charity.” The proceeds were distributed to a variety of local community non-profit organizations including Historic Shepherdstown, Animal Welfare Association, the Shepherd University Contemporary Arts Theater Festival, Friends of Happy Retreat, Good Shepherd Caregivers, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of the Eastern Panhandle, Friends of Music, the Shepherdstown Public Library, Jefferson County Friends in Action, and the Shepherdstown Day Care Center. Funds were also raised for specific Rotary International initiatives such as Polio Plus.
