{Dothan, AL., June 29, 2019} Members of the Rotaract Club of Troy University’s Dothan campus, which is sponsored by the Dothan Tuesday Rotary Club, played a major role in collecting $44,000 at the Fireworks @ the Fairground event to benefit the Wiregrass United Way. Club members Madison Kimbro, Heather Tindell, Chelsea Johnston, and Lori Lewis gave up a portion of their weekend to volunteer in this very worthy
fundraising event.

Wiregrass United Way CEO Walter Hill, said, "The Rotaract Club of Troy University's Dothan Campus was an integral part of our event. On a day when we needed so many volunteers to work many hours in the heat we were thrilled to have their participation. They helped make Fireworks at the Fairgrounds a tremendous success."

Troy University Associate Dean and Rotaract Club Advisor said, “The Dothan Tuesday Rotary Club provides the optimal level of support for these TROY Rotaract students to engage in the business community and develop their leadership skills. These acts of volunteerism, such as the Fireworks at the Fairgrounds event, allow the students to feel more engaged and promote experiential learning, as well as provide an opportunity to expand their professional skills, meet new people, network, and spend quality time with friends. These young ladies came together for a unified purpose – to raise money and awareness for United Way. Their commitment,
passion, enthusiasm, and focused energy are highly commended.”
