On February 23rd, The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club put on their annual event, Midnight in the Tropics, with over 300 in attendance.  The evening raised over $100,000.  This years beneficiaries were The Torch, Midcourse Corrections, and Reaching Higher.  Food, friendship and fun to benefit 3 deserving organizations for youth.
There were dueling pianos for entertainment, games, silent and live auctions.  Many hands came together to put on an extraordinary event for our community. Service above self.
 “Simply spectacular." Words from 2018/2019 LSRC President Tim Williams. He was also stuck by what one of the beneficiaries said to him on the evening of the event, “that MITT is proof that God acts and speaks though our Club”.
The Midnight in the Tropics fundraiser has helped approximately 47 different organizations locally and world-wide between 2014-2018 totaling over $440,000 in support dollars. Our organization’s ability to continue to help our community is due to the generous support of sponsors and individuals, who believe in supporting the mission to do more for the greater good.

Warbirds of Glory
In March, LSRC members had the unique experience of meeting inside the museum housing portions of a vintage WWII airplane. LSRC member, Todd Trainor, hosted the meeting as part of his presentation to the club for local nonprofit, Warbirds of Glory Museum - Kittyhawk Academy.  In addition to the standard meeting fare - breakfast, inductions, pledges, happy dollars, etc., members enjoyed learning about the history of the museum from it's founders and the chance to meet students impacted by the nonprofits educational arm.  Young people from the community learn skilled trades while gaining an appreciation for the historical value of the museum project - restoring the airplane.
