Lifesaving Receives Cash From Rotary Art Auction

Hawke’s Bay Lifesaving is to get a substantial boost thanks to art — and the Rotary Club of Greenmeadows.

The Rotary club has been giving money to community organisations for 38 years. In fact the group has put $900,000 into the community through its Art-X National Exhibition and Sale.

This year they have changed the format somewhat and secured a major sponsor for the next three years.

Rotary Club Greenmeadows chairman Geoff Bennett says this year they had a “grant competition” to decide who they would donate the largest portion of the proceeds from the exhibition and sale to.
