Fundraising Events and Opportunities


Congratulations, Marchin' for Melons, for completing the 2014 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, and having raised more than $7,500 for the fight against breast cancer.  We completed the 39 miles

Congratulations, Rowell Warriors, for raising money to battle MS on May 4, 2014

Due to your continued support, leadership, and dedication to Walk MS, your team, Rowell Warriors, is currently the #10
fundraising team at Walk MS: McHenry
.  You are also the #288 fundraising team, out of over 1100,
across the entire state as of today
! With teams like yours, we were able to rally over 12,000 people at 13 different Walk MS locations on Sunday, May 4 and are well on our way to raising over $2.7 million for people living
with MS right here in Illinois. Not only did you get others to join the movement towards a world free of MS, but you motivated them to make contributions to further advances in research, programs, and services for those living with MS.

Avon Walk for Breast Cancer - June 2013

MS Walk - Palatine - May 2013
Over the past several years Rowell, Inc. and its staff has been committed to the mission of giving back to the community and those in need.
Whether planting trees, donating holiday meals and gifts, organizing auctions and picnics, or walking for miles, we’ve focused on all the blessings in our own lives
and set the goal to share our own good fortune with others less fortunate.

 2015 is no different…in fact, we’re stepping up our efforts and are expanding our horizons in an effort to make a difference in many more lives! Won’t you join us?!?

 During the first half of 2015 we will continue to Pay it Forward through our partnership with C.A.T.I.F. (Celebrating All That Is Feminine) at its 6th Annual Silent Auction on February 27th,
and will also be participating in the National MS Society’s “Walk MS 2015” event on May 3rd.

 The second half of 2015 will once again include our participation in the 2-day Avon 39 Walk for Breast Cancer in Chicago, and the C.A.T.I.F. Annual Family Picnic,
in addition to our staff’s usual Thanksgiving Food Pantry Drive and Holiday Adopt-a-Family Gift Giving Charity late in the year.
More detailed information on these events will following in the coming months!

We ‘re reaching out to our friends, family, and business associates hoping you will join our efforts and make a difference in the lives of others.
Whether you’re able to make a monetary donation, attend or contribute an item to be auctioned off on February 27th, or
put your walking shoes on and hit the pavement with us on May 3rd, your generosity and participation will be appreciated
by all those that benefit from these worthwhile events!
