We obtain fresh-picked Seedless Navel Oranges and Ruby Red Grapefruit from the Indian River Groves in central Florida and bring them to you for the Holiday Season. These Grade A Oranges and Grapefruit are a favorite for gifts to friends, employees, and business associates.
Over $1.3 million in grants have been provided to local charities through this annual event.
100% of the net proceeds are returned to the local and global community to make the world a better place. The fundraiser allows for Rotary to continue live in its Four-Way Test by doing service that is TRUE, FAIR, GOODWILLED, AND BENEFICIAL for the local and global community. Secondly, the benefits of purchasing fruit allows for Rotary to continue to contribute in a meaningful way with their ongoing partnership with the Central Illinois Food Bank.
