Polio Plus Night at Iowa Energy - February 8th

The sixth annual Rotary Polio Plus / Iowa Energy Basketball Fundraiser will be on Saturday, February 8, 2014.  This partnership with the Iowa Energy will help raise funds for the eradication of polio worldwide.  Polio exists today in only three countries; Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigeria. A 60 cent immunization will keep a child from contracting polio.

The Iowa Energy has priced their sideline $20.00 tickets at $16.00 to Rotarians and their friends and will give back to Rotary $8.00 for each ticket we sell to this event.  The game will be 7:00 PM against the Erie Bayhawks at Wells Fargo Arena.  Purchasing two tickets for $32.00 would provide Rotary’s Polio Eradication effort with a $16.00 rebate from Iowa Energy, and more importantly, immunize 27 children from the polio virus.  In addition, there will be a pregame Rotary reception in the Iowa Hall of Pride with complimentary appitizers, beer and wine beginning at 4:45 and the Chicago Boyz Acrobats will perform at halftime.

The Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team is a professional gymnastics troupe consisting of talented young men and boys from the Chicagoland area.  Their performance includes amazing acrobatic stunts and tricks inside twirling jump ropes, catapulting off mini trampolines and thundering tumbling routines with impeccable timing.  They were an "America's Got Talent" Season 8 Semifinalist. 

Tickets are available at each Rotary meeting.  If you would like to support PolioPlus but are unable to attend the game, tickets can be purchased and donated to local youth groups and other non-profits or a contribution can be made directly to the Rotary Foundation.  For details contact Nate Burnham, nfburnham@gmai.com.
