2024-25 Rotary International President Stephanie A. Urchick invites 25 PolioPlus supporters to her hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, to Help Rotary Strike Out Polio at the $1 Million Baseball Game.

Starting 1 December 2023, the first 25 Rotary Foundation supporters who donate US$10,000 or more to the PolioPlus Fund will be invited to join RI President Stephanie Urchick and General Secretary and CEO John Hewko to cheer on Major League Baseball’s Pittsburgh Pirates from a private suite at PNC Park on 23 July 2024.

Attendees’ transportation and accommodation expenses are not included. When matched 2-to-1 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, these gifts will result in an additional $1 million in funding to support Rotary’s work to eradicate polio worldwide.

Space is limited, so interested donors are encouraged to register right away. Contact Kevin Kelly, Rotary Foundation major gifts officer, at or +1-847-866-3205.

The Rotary Foundation thanks Bob Brooks, 2023-24 president of the Rotary Club of Delmont-Salem, Pennsylvania, for hosting this special event.
