The Great Rotary Hot Chili Pepper Challenge 2017
We have been fortunate enough to be chosen as the beneficiary for two local Rotary clubs (Rotary Club of Newark ( and Rotary Club of Mission San Jose) in the upcoming Hot! Hot! Hot! Chili Pepper Challenge.
Created by the Rotary Clubs of Fremont, Newark, and Union City, the Chili Pepper Challenge is a fundraising campaign created to benefit local and international Rotary service projects. You can support this initiative with a direct donation or by taking up the challenge and helping to raise funds for a great cause.
The challenge is completely virtual and will take place from September 5th through October 30th. The beauty of this challenge is that all donations made in the name of the museum will be matched 3:1 by Rotary and the challenge sponsors. We must raise a minimum of $3,300 ($1,650 for each of our two clubs), but by doing so we will raise $9,900 for the museum!
