For the 40th consecutive year, Rotary International will proudly present a float in the Pasadena Rose Parade on New Year's Day 2019. The money raised will go towards the expenses incurred for the whimsical float adorned with seeds, flowers, leaves and other natural fibers with the theme: Service Rocks!
When Rotary International's directors approved the first entry in the parade over 40 years ago, they saw in it an unrivaled opportunity to bring Rotary's name into public view. They reasoned that an eye-catching float would capture the interest of broadcast commentators and remind the world of Rotary's good works.
The Rose Parade is viewed by approximately 700,000 people, and a television viewing audience of over 45 million in the United States and millions more around the world in more than 200 countries.
We have already raised $4,000 and need an additional $2,650 to meet the goal.
