Taste Of Punta Gorda – A major fundraiser for the Club’s Charity & Education Foundation, the Taste is held annually on the first Sunday of March. We bring 30+ area restaurants and 80+ arts & crafts, food products, and other vendors together at Laishley Park in Punta Gorda for a wonderful day of food, music, and fun. There’s a great kid’s zone and lots of entertainment for the family! Mark March 6, 2022 on your calendar.
Healing Field of Honor – Over Memorial Day Weekend in 2021, we launched a fundraising event for our Foundation. In cooperation with the Colonial Flag Foundation, we flew over 500 flags in solemn formation at Laishley Park. Community members and businesses sponsored flags to honor fallen heroes as well as living veterans, first responders, and local community and family heroes. It was such a wonderful community event, that we are looking forward to doing it again from May 27-30, 2022, so mark your calendar for this as well.
Testimonial Dinner – Each Fall, the Rotary Club of Punta Gorda honors a community member who has lived our motto “Service Above Self” at an annual Testimonial Dinner, usually held at the Isle Yacht Club. Many notable community members have been recognized and we invite everyone in Punta Gorda to join us in this annual celebration for one of Punta Gorda’s finest citizens. Please mark your calendar for Tuesday, November 2, 2021.
