Rotary Club Golf Classic
Our most successful fund raising project, the annual event is held each August at the Cherry Hill Country Club in Richwood, WV. For the past five years the tournament, with golfers vying for positions on teams, has had no problems filling the entries. Actually each year, the Rotary has a waiting list of individuals and teams requesting positions. With a dinner held after golf and open to the public, the Rotary has been fortunate to top off the event with popular guest speakers: Eddie Pastilong, Don Blankenship, Jim Justice, Oliver Luck and Dana Holgorsen have informed and entertained the audience.

Nicholas County Fair Week
Each summer during the Fair, Rotary continues to pursue its fund raising efforts by sponsoring a raffle. In the past, a car, big screen TVs, four wheelers and a Harley to name just a few of the great prizes raffled have brought plenty of smiles to the winners and benefited the community as well.
