This collaborative effort among clubs, Rotary Clubs of Austin North Metro Passport, Round Rock, Round Rock Sunrise, Cedar Park Leander, and Northwest Austin hosted "Pies for Polio" fundraisers on Saturday, October 22; they raised over $3,300 in funds and brought awareness of polio's existence in the world.  
Donations were received for the privilege of throwing a pie in the faces of their favorite past district governor, Scott Rainey, Dian Edwards, Jerry Chapman, Jim Henry, Hanspeter Tobler, and Northwest Austin's president Debbie Tam, and the mayor of Cedar Park, Jim Penniman-Morin.  During the fun, past district governor Tim Buckley targeted the current district governor, Shannon Coleman, with a pie. Not only were pies thrown, but home-baked apple pies were sold at the Success High School event. 
Rotary's second event, "Pints for Polio," was held on World Polio Day, October 24. Fun and pints flowed at Finley's in Round Rock and Whitestone Brewery in Cedar Park. Club members and guests gathered for fellowship and fun. The establishments were kind to donate a portion of all proceeds from the sale of food and beverages sold that night. Plus, they will get matched 2:1, thanks to the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Every $100 raised will turn into $300 in support of global eradication efforts.
