In honor of World Polio Day and the national "End Polio Now" campaign, the Rotary Club of Greenwood will host its second annual "Pints for Polio" fundraiser Wed., Oct. 9 at Flynn's on Maxwell to benefit Rotary International's efforts to eradicate polio worldwide.
"Since 1988, Rotary International has been focused on eliminating polio," said Rotary President Eric Taylor. "Our Club wanted to support these efforts and help eliminate this dreadful disease. Our goal is awareness and prevention. Rotarians are people of action, and our 110-member club felt we could contribute in a meaningful way to raise monies to benefit Rotary International's Polio Plus fund. Contributions help obtain vaccines and transport them to children in affected areas in three countries," he said.
Live music will be provided by Greenville guitarist Trey Stephens beginning at 5:15 p.m. Trey is a prolific pop singer / songwriter from Greenville, South Carolina, and has a versatile style of play — multi-instrumentalism and loop station mastery.
The event will be from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. at Flynn's on Maxwell, 120 Maxwell Avenue in Uptown Greenwood. Tickets are $20 / person and include two complimentary brews and light refreshments. Live music will be provided by Greenville guitarist Trey Stephens. Tickets will be available for sale at the event.
