The Rotary Club of Healesville’s Dogs Day Out event was a tremendous success having raised $10,500 for local sporting clubs.
The announcement was made at a Rotary club meeting on Thursday 16 May and marks the fourth year of the event which has now distributed $34,000 to local community groups and sports clubs.
Rotary club member Ian Vine said, “We approach local community and sporting clubs to submit an application for funds and the purpose for those funds.”
Previous funding allowed Healesville Soccer Club to purchase new light weight goals, while Yarra Glen Football and Netball Club was able to supply footy guernseys for their junior girls.
The Rotary Club of Healesville thanked their sponsors from the event, which had allow them to distribute funds to 11 sports clubs in Healesville and Yarra Glen.
Rotary said that the Dogs Day Out will return in 2020, where they hope to see bigger crowds, more fundraising and more fun.
