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, inclusion 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.

Every hear of Shelter Box? This program, started by a Rotarian, provides shelter and supplies to victims of disasters aroudn the world.
