The Global Medical Relief Fund (GMRF), which is supported in part by the Rotary Club of West Chester through its CORS (Charitable Orthopedic Rehabilitation Strategies) program, recently held its  4th Annual Awards Dinner in Staten Island, NY. Our club's International Service Committee members were invited to attend the fundraising "Evening of Hope," and to honor eight outstanding Community Partners, Outstanding Volunteers of the Year, and Youth in Philanthropy. Because CORS members were unable to attend, Cathy Palmquist and her husband attended the gala to represent the West Chester club.

Kenan was the inspiration for the GMRF program, explained Elissa, who has been a frequent visitor to our club, introducing some of the children we have helped.
