Our 18th Annual Pet Walk, our flagship fundraiser, will be IN PERSON this year at Chase Farm in Lincoln!  This fundraiser normally raises $8,000-$10,000 and while we understand we may not be able to meet this goal, we want to still contribute to our community. 
As in the past, this fundraiser benefits the Blackstone Valley Municipal Animal Shelter as well as several other Rotary charities.  The BVM Animal Shelter remains in need of donations to keep their doors open and help those animals in need within the Cumberland and Lincoln communities.
