Muffet McGraw teams up with the Rotary Club of South Bend for a special cause
SOUTH BEND, Ind.- University of Notre Dame Women’s Basketball Coach, Muffet McGraw, joined the Rotary Club of South Bend for a “Paint Your Pinkies Purple to End Polio” event on Wednesday afternoon.
The Century Center in South Bend hosted the event which offered attendees the opportunity to sport pinkies painted with purple nail polish.
For a small donation, guests could get their pinkies painted in an effort to raise money and awareness for the eradication of polio, and for a $25 donation, that paint could be applied by McGraw herself.
McGraw, who has been a long-time supporter of the Rotary Club, was also a guest speaker at the event.
Over the last 40 years, Rotary has helped to immunize more than two billion children against polio in 122 countries, for as little as sixty cents a child.
Thanks to the Rotary and its partners, polio cases have been reduced by 99% worldwide since the first vaccination initiative in 1979.
