ATTENTION:

We regret to inform you that Earl Rigler has resigned from East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club. He will surely be missed. And as a result, we have an open position on our Board of Directors. This position is a 3 year term (2018-2021), and monthly meetings are required.

Being on the board is a great way to get involved and develop relationships with your fellow Rotarians. Please contact Stephanie if you are interested…

The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, April 24, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. in The Cooper River Room at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. We are pleased to hear from Tim Winkler, CEO and Principal of the Winkler Group, a full-service fundraising firm. Breakfast catered by Dish and Design Catering and Events.

Tim Winkler spent his first fifteen professional years in university advancement. He worked in small and large shops, in all positions from annual fund and alumni affairs to director of development and chief development officer.

Each university he worked for went through a campaign during his time there. Each school hired the “best” campaign counsel in the profession…or at least what they were led to believe was the best.

No matter how big or well-respected the firm, Tim was consistently underwhelmed by their service. Their counsel was boiler plate, generic. They kept the client busy being busy, and checked in periodically. They were quick to take credit when things went well, and the first to blame others when success didn’t come.

Because Tim always felt like things could-and should-be done differently, he founded the Winkler Group in 2004. With a vision for creating something completely different than anything Tim had previously experienced in fundraising, the Winkler Group would serve clients the way he had wanted to be served.

The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. in The Cooper River Room at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. We are pleased to hear from fellow Rotarian Sean Glassberg about Racers for Pacers, a non- profit founded by Sean in 2011. Breakfast catered by Dish and Design Catering and Events.

Inspired by Rick and Dick Hoyt, Sean started Racers for Pacers to help Lowcountry kids with disabilities become a part of the vibrant running community in our area. Racers for Pacers currently has over 20 Racers who participate in local road races and run each week with either their parents as Pacers or volunteers from our community.

Sean Glassberg is a Rotarian involved with the Georgetown Rotary Club because he loves driving 40+ miles one way to get from his home in Mount Pleasant to his campus at Horry Georgetown Technical College, where he serves as Director of Faculty Development and teaches English from time to time. He is a proud father of four and husband of one who also coaches his kids in Mt Pleasant Rec Sports programs and runs a side business to provide faculty development for other colleges and universities. Somehow, he finds time to run and train on his own when he is not herding his kids or taking out the garbage.
