World Polio Day is October 24 and the Hazleton Rotary Club is inviting you and your friends to join us at Bottlenecks Saloon & Eatery from 4 p.m.-midnight to raise a glass for the fight against Polio.
For every pint you purchase, Bottlenecks will donate $1 towards the fight against polio throughout the world.

Hazleton Rotary President Alan Whitaker says “This will be the first “Pints for Polio” event the Hazleton Club has held and we want to thank Bottlenecks for agreeing to hold the project at their restaurant and for offering the donation. It’s an easy, fun way for people to help join the battle to end polio.”
Rotary International has been working to eradicate polio for more than 30 years, and has made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.
As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, they’ve helped to reduce polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.
It’s crucial to eliminate polio from the last three countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.
If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.
We’re close to eradicating polio, but we’re not done yet. Funds are still needed to continue immunization and surveillance efforts. With your help, Greater Hazleton will get us closer to the finish line.
We’re inviting the community to be a part of history. Join us for pint or two, and bring a friend, or two, to “Pints for Polio.”
Sincere appreciation to Rotary Club Member Mike Cammisa who is the General Manager at Bottlenecks and owner, Jay Misto for their assistance with this project.
