Elliot Lake Rotary hosting 100 Project 

By Rosalind Russell – The 100 Elliot Lakers Who Care Campaign is being launched by the city’s Rotary Club. 

According to the release, after 2019’s successful funding of Paul Eldon’s Kiwanis Park basketball court improvements, the club has decided to spearhead another ‘100 Elliot Lakers Who Care!’ project – culminating in a live voting event in late fall 2023. 

The campaign is two-fold; the public submits worthy community projects for consideration and 100 individuals pledge $100 each raising $10,000 for the selected project. 

Participants are provided the privilege of selecting their project of choice by making the pledge. 

The club says there are two ways to join in, either by sending an e-transfer or visiting the online checkout that has been set up for the campaign. 

  1. Send a $100 Interac Email Money Transfer (EMT) to imin@elliotlake100.com and follow up with a message to the same email address with your name and contact info or 2. Visit the Online Checkout and buy your vote. Voting on the project will take place this fall. Email imin@elliotlake100.com for an alternate arrangement. At the live voting event, the 100 donors will listen to pitches from community projects and will vote to select a winner. The winning project is funded that night with a $10,000 cheque from the donors to realize their initiative. Throughout the process, The Rotary Club of Elliot Lake will be in regular contact with donors and project representatives via a dedicated email mailing list.
