Thank you to all who joined us in person and virtually for the tee-off to the 32nd annual Chili Open Golf Classic! We are extremely thankful to our Chili Open Presenting Sponsor Wayne Homes, and appreciate their continued support.
Funding from the Chili Open help ensures that no camper is ever turned away from Akron Rotary Camp due to inability to pay. The Chili Open provides significant operational camperships for families who otherwise would not have the opportunity to send their child with special needs to camp.
Your involvement as an Akron Rotarian will assist in helping to send children and adults with disabilities to summer day and overnight camps, as well as year-round respite programs. For over 97 years, Rotary Camp has been a viable resource for the Akron community, in providing campers with the opportunities to experience traditional camping activities, develop friendships, learn life skills and create memories that will last a lifetime.
The easiest way to support the cause is Raffle Tickets! We ask every Rotarian to purchase or sell their ten raffle tickets or more.  1st prize is a 2022 Kia Forte LXS, or $16,000 cash prize; 2nd prize is a Goodyear Blimp Ride for Two; and 3rd prize is a 55-inch 4k Smart LED TV. Raffle tickets were distributed to all Rotarians that attended the meeting. If you did not attend in person, you should receive you raffle tickets in the next few days by mail.
Another way to support the Chili Open would be through a sponsorship. View the updated sponsorship benefits packet here. Please consider to increase your sponsorship, renew your sponsorship or even to become a first time sponsor.  Your support makes the Chili Open an annual success for our Club.
We also need help with Camperships, Door Prizes, Silent Auction Items and Volunteers to help with set-up, during the event, and tear-down.

For 97 years, Akron Rotary Camp has been the main project of our Rotary Club. Every Rotarian is needed to help us raise $320,000 for Rotary Camp continue with their mission of “Creating a world where there are only abilities!” Thank you for teeing off with us and we are looking forward to seeing you on February 5, 2022 at Hale Farm and Village for Akron Rotary’s 32nd Annual Chili Open Golf Classic.
