Rotary Club of Coronado


Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years. Rotary International is a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, which also includes the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and countries throughout the world. Together, we've reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent since Rotary’s first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. Today, Polio is endemic in two countries:  Afghanistan and Pakistan. 

Why is this event more important than ever?  As you know, vaccinations of all types have dropped off precipitously worldwide because of COVID-19.  Unfortunately, under these circumstances, it was just a matter of time before Polio once again reached the US. In Rockland County, NY, a 20-year-old man who had traveled to Poland and Hungary earlier in the year and who was unvaccinated for Polio, contracted the disease and has paralysis.  He is out of the hospital and is able to stand but has difficulty walking.  This is the first U. S. case since 2013.

To quote Mike McGovern, Chair of the Rotary International Polio Plus Committee, “Any form of poliovirus anywhere is a threat to children everywhere.”  He calls on every Rotarian to take action to ensure a world free of all forms of poliovirus.  The action we take through our fundraiser supports this all-important initiative. 


LIVE Auction items will be auctioned “LIVE” at the End Polio Event, Friday, September 9th.  We have posted the Live Auction Items on this Site for you to VIEW.  Silent Auction Items are organized into “Categories”, or you can see all of the items by clicking “All Items”.

After the Silent Auction is closed (Monday, September 12th at 11:55 pm PST), you will need to go back into your account and a detailed statement will be available for your review. You must authorize payment for your items against the credit card you provided. Charges will not be processed against your credit card without your authorization. Once payment has been received, some items will be emailed to you with the contact information and some items will be mailed (gift certificates).  For larger items, you will be provided with the contact information for the donor and can arrange pick-up of your item from them.

Taxes and processing fees will be charged to the winning bidder.

It is best to use a computer or tablet to view and bid; this website is not optimized for viewing on a smartphone.
