During their June meeting the Rotary Club of Ankeny's Board approved the following donation requests:
New Horizon Adult Day Care - $1,000 - This request is for a sponsorship for New Horizon's annual golf outing fundraiser.  The proceeds from their fundraiser will be used to purchase supplies and equipment.   As a result of this sponsorship, the club is entitled to register a foursome to play golf.
Blessman International – The club has an outstanding commitment to contribute $2,000 per year to Blessman International's “Teach a Child to Fish” project.  Since these funds will not be matched by District 6000 or Rotary International, Dr. Jim Blessman had requested that these funds be transferred to a new project they are working on to teach ladies to make their own “Days for Girls” hygiene kits.  The new project will be part of a Global Grant which would allow the funds to be matched by the District and Rotary International.   This request was approved and the funds, totaling $4,000 will not be disbursed until late this year.
