Purple Tee Golf Classic

The Purple Tee Golf Classic, Metro Bethesda Rotary Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year, was on Thursday, September 22, 2022, at Whiskey Creek Golf Club in Ijamsville, MD. This year the Purple Tee supported the MBR Foundation as well as a terrific veterans organization, The Salute Military Golf Association (SMGA). Participants supported in many ways: by playing golf, sponsoring, volunteering, or bidding on Silent Auction items. It was a great day of golf and fellowship!

Happy Bucks

Each week MBR devotes a segment of its meeting to Happy Bucks. All members have a chance to mention something they’re happy about, be it a personal milestone, a noteworthy event in the community, or something as routine as colorful flowers or crisp fall weather. Happy Bucks time helps build community in our Club – members get to know each other’s interests and successes – and at the same time, we give a little each week to the MBR Foundation. Many members pay in cash at the meeting, but members and non-members have the option of making a donation online via Paypal. Make a Happy Bucks donation
