About Colleyville Rotary
The Rotary Club of Colleyville has been serving the greater Colleyville area since 1985. Colleyville Rotarians are business leaders, entrepreneurs and community leaders who want to contribute and serve. We promote ethics, leadership and service.
Our signature event is Dancing for the Stars, a community-wide fundraiser. Since 2010, Dancing for the Stars has raised over $165,000 for local and international causes.
One of our primary causes is the Grapevine Colleyville Education Foundation. In total, we have contributed over $150,000 to the Foundation, making us its all-time leading donor.
Have you ever noticed he American flags that line many businesses along Colleyville Boulevard on National holidays? That's a program of the Colleyville Rotary Club and the local Boy Scouts!
We work with the Colleyville United Methodist Church to sponsor an annual Feed the Hungry campaign, Last year we prepared and shipped over 11,000 meals to families around the world.
Every hear of Shelter Box? This program, started by a Rotarian, provides shelter and supplies to victims of disasters around the world.
The Polio Plus is Rotary's on-going campaign to eradicate polio. Teaming with the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, UNICEF, national governments and organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, we are on the verge of eradicating this crippling disease.
Behind the scenes you will find us waiting tables at the GCISD New Educators Luncheon, serving meals at the Union Gospel Mission, contributing to after school programs for children, sponsoring our annual 4-Way Speech contest for Colleyville Heritage high school students or leading a sing-along for seniors.
