The Rotary Club of South Richmond is proud to present our First Annual Charity Car Raffle Giveaway.

The Families of the Wounded Fund is the South Richmond Rotary's primary beneficiary of the 1st Annual Car Raffle this year. The Families of the Wounded Fund directs 100% of donations and the net proceeds from its events to assist families who come from across the nation to help their loved ones heal.
In previous wars, wounded service members were treated close to home. Today, care is given by the very best center possible, regardless of location. This has resulted in severe hardship for families who must travel far from home and remain with a wounded family member for weeks at a time.
Many of the combat wounded soldiers, Marines, sailors and airmen returning from Iraq and Afghanistan are treated at McGuire Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia - a top treatment center for head and spinal cord injuries.
