Dear Fellow Rotarians,
This is another historic day for Rotary. Our organization was honored today to host philanthropist Bill Gates, Jr. at Rotary’s International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.
Speaking to 2009-2010 district governors-elect, Bill Gates, Jr. congratulated Rotarians on the success of the partnership between Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to raise funds for polio. To date, Rotarians have already committed more than US$60 million toward the original US$100 million Gates challenge grant awarded in November 2007.
