|Toast Banquet Raises Over $18,000 to Benefit Ivy Tech Students
Our club recognized Kerry Stemler, dedicated community servant, business owner, and devoted Hoosier, as the honoree for the 26th Annual Rotary Community Toast and Benefit Banquet on November 1st for his important contributions to the local area and exemplifying the true spirit of the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”
As customary, a portion of the proceeds from the Toast are distributed to a nonprofit or charity as selected by that year’s honoree(s). Kerry selected to have this portion of the proceeds benefit the Ivy Tech Foundation where the funds will be used for student scholarships. Kerry joined us last week to announce the final donation amount and to help distribute the funds to his chosen charity. We were proud to present a check, totaling over $18,000, to Ivy Tech Chancellor Dr. Travis Haire and the Ivy Tech Foundation.
