Posted on 6th August 2014 at 08:40

There’s a special program being offered this evening in the Wollenberg Auditorium at LCC’s Rose Center for the Arts, an event that’s intended to help continue the battle of eradicating polio. “End Polio Now” is bein jointly hosted by the Kelso Rotary, the Longview Rotary, the Longview Early Edition Rotary and the Woodland Rotary Club. The subtitle for tonight’s program is “Putting a Face on Polio,” and will feature a presentation from polio survivor Joan Toone. Things get started at 5:30 pm with a social hour, with wine and hors d’oeuvres available for purchase. Toone’s presentation is scheduled to start at 6:30 pm, and a closing message from Polio Plus will be presented at 7 pm. 100 percent of the proceeds from tonight’s event will go to Polio Plus, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will also contribute double the amount that’s raised tonight. Tickets will be available at the door, or through the Rotary Clubs in Kelso, Longview and Woodland.
