Sea Island Rotary distributed funds to four local Beaufort charities at our June 2 meeting. President Larry told club members that this is one of his favorite duties, as we share the proceeds of our fundraising efforts. The charities that received checks at this meeting include CAPA (Citizens Against Child Abuse), Thumbs Up (after-school tutoring for at-risk students), Port Royal Sound Foundation, and the YMCA.

Our program was by another charitable organization Dragon Boat Beaufort, which uses races between paddling teams to help raise funds for cancer patients and survivors. A great cause!
