Rotary Club of Perrine-Cutler Ridge/Palmetto Bay
"Service Above Self"
There are a approximately 40 members in our club. We are entrepreneurs/business owners, health care professionals, consultants, financial advisers, insurance agent, airline pilot, real estate agents/property managers, attorneys, retired commercial airline pilot, retired U.S. armed services individuals and retired public service executives.
Our club is devoted and committed to serving the community where we reside and work, as well as international projects. We have provided over $250,000 in college scholarships to local students and we support a Miami-Dade County Park and Recreation’s after school care and summer program in West Perrine. We also have a program to help the homeless students of Miami Southridge Senior High School.
We participate in Rotary International’s End Polio Now program. For the past three years, we have sponsored a new fresh water well at three schools and their villages in Kenya. The Club provides paid tutors to the after school program and supports various sports/event programs at West Perrine Park. Additionally, many club members provide one-on-one homework help three days per week. Each year we purchase school supplies for approximately 100 needy children attending the local elementary schools. Annually we pay for and distribute a full Thanksgiving dinner, plus two additional dinners, to 250 needy families in the West Perrine neighborhood.
Each year we shop for and donate over $3,000 worth of toys to under-privileged children in our community during the Holiday Season. 100% of club funds raised or donated to our local foundation go to projects sponsored and supported by our local club or Rotary International. We are not impacted by administrative costs, other than those required by the government.
