2nd Annual Rotary’s Got Game Kicks Into Gear for New and Used Sporting Equipment


It’s not too late to donate new and used sporting equipment for this year’s 2nd Annual Rotary’s Got Game event.  The Rotary Club of Cape Coral, in partnership with the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties, once again will be collecting new and used sporting equipment to benefit Children’s Network of Southwest Florida.


The Rotary Club of Cape Coral is asking the public to drop off new or gently used sporting equipment especially basketballs, volleyballs, soccer balls, Nerf toys, jump ropes, baseball gloves and items that the kids can play alone or with a few people.  The Rotary’s Got Game event will take place on August 1st where children who are signed up through the Children’s Network of SWFL will be given the opportunity to pick out the sporting equipment of their choice.


 Newly installed Rotary President Jim Perry and project chair Donna Marie Clavin collaborated with Hannah Pelle of the United Way and Nadereh Salim, CEO of Children’s Network, to bring back the highly successful event that put huge smiles on the faces of children in the community.  “35 children were positively impacted last year and this year we are expecting 75 children!  We knew we had to make this happen again for so many reasons and more,” said Perry.


Rotary Club of Cape Coral is a not-for-profit organization responsible for several community projects and events, including the Cape Coral Festival of the Arts, the Cardboard Boat Regatta, a dictionary project for third graders and Rotary Park in downtown Cape Coral. During its 50-year history, Rotary Club of Cape Coral has been one of the most influential service organizations in Southwest Florida and has counted among its members many of Lee County’s finest community and business leaders
