Westminster Rotaract Club at the Chili Open
Last weekend was the Sugarhouse Rotary’s Annual Chili Open and we as a Rotaract Club decided to get involved and serve in any way we could. It was a huge success! We all ventured down to Wheeler Farm in Murray, UT for fun, friends, food, and fundraising activities like golfing and a 5k for multiple charities. Here are just a few of the causes that the Chili Open helps to support.
Many of our Rotaractors turned up for the event. There were volunteers to help in the food line inside the barn dishing up the main attraction – lots and lots of delicious chili!! Here are some of our members rockin’ health code hats for the food line. Super stylish!
We had our own table to spread the word about us and even a photo booth thanks to one of our members, Jeff Bennett. It was a blast.
The Rotarians put together an incredible event, as always. There were activities for the kids, but the Rotaractors and other 'older kids' seemed to enjoy them just as much.
And of course the 5k for the heartier participants, and golf for the rest ;)
The Westminster Rotaract Club had a blast and we can’t wait for our next activity and opportunity to serve! Thank you to the Sugarhouse Rotary Club for allowing us to participate, and to our Rotaract President-Elect Whitney Warnick for being proactive about getting us involved with this activity. Our President Jerika Michel, Vice-President Dave Mays and all the rest of us would also like to express our thanks to all the participants and everyone who made this event the huge success that it was.
