On July 26-28, 2019 the 4th annual "Live to Give" charity competition hosted by the Rogers Lions Club will take place in Hanover, Minnesota. The event is inspired by the hit reality television series "Survivor." Just like on the TV show, our contestants will starve, strategize and compete in physically and mentally grueling challenges to earn the right to donate a portion of the funds raised by all contestants to their charity of choice.
Our contestants have each selected a charity with special meaning to them, and they will raise funds for that charity prior to the event and proudly represent the the charity in the event. $400 of the funds raised by each contestant will go directly to the pool of money being played for, The other money raised after $400 will go directly to their chosen charity! Regardless of the outcome, every contestant and donor can feel good about their involvement in and contributions to this event because 100% of the funds raised by contestants go to charity!!
In the 1st season, we raised $2,710. In our 2nd season in July of 2017, we raised $17,764, our 3rd season we raised $27,764 and now we are back for a 4th season and are hoping to raise even more money for these awesome organizations that make such an important difference in our communities!
