Every July, as they have done for more than three decades, Bellevue Rotarians exchange their business attire for aprons and meet up at ice cream carts during the annual Bellevue Arts Museum’s ARTSfair, a treasured community celebration at Bellevue Square.
Rotarians and family members work in 3-hour shifts selling ice cream throughout the three-day fair. Selling ice cream and ice cold water on a beautiful summer weekend, the Rotarians – from community business leaders to doctors, lawyers, and even our police chief – have raised more than $175,000 for projects and grants that support our communities.
More than 200 Bellevue Rotary members, along with their friends and families, participate in this fundraising event. Join us on the fourth weekend in July to buy an ice cream and find out more about our work. Your support will make a powerful difference in our community
“This is such a fun event! What a fantastic opportunity to meet with community leaders, Bellevue Rotarians, and friends over ice cream, and support our community. Hats off to our wonderful Rotarians for getting out on a beautiful sunny weekend in July to raise awareness of the important work Rotarians do to improve life in our communities and around the globe.” — BRC President David Laub
