The Southwest Omaha Rotary Night Club Wine Tasting Fundraisers have raised more than $150,000 over the past five years, including $50,000 from our 2014 event that was held October 9, 2014 at Indian Creek Golf Club.  We had great auction items, fabulous food, wine and entertainment this year,  all continuing to benefit the amazing work done at the Boys Town National Hotline, especially as they celebrate their 25th anniversary.  

In 2013, the Boys Town National Hotline answered over 115,000 calls and responded to 36,000 web-based contacts (e-mails, chats, texts, etc.).  Of these 151,000 contacts, over 18,000 dealt with suicidal thoughts and 632 involved individuals who were in the actual act of suicide.
This annual fundraising event for the Boys Town National Hotline has allowed the Hotline to:
  • Purchase water bottles printed with the Hotline phone number (1-800-448-3000) for several thousand local high school students.
  • Purchase Hotline posters for area high schools.
  • Purchase additional Hotline wallet cards and pencils for local middle school students.
  • Provide contributions to fund the costs of on-line chat services for teens.
We would like to thank each and every one of you who helped us make this year's event the most successful yet! See you all next year!
