Welcome to the 2015 Rotarian Idol Audience Favorite fundraising page! This is where you can click on the name of your favorite contestant (see below) and “vote” for him/her by making an online donation (all proceeds go to support local education and other humanitarian causes of the Hickory Rotary Club).
