Oktoberfest is about more than beer and brats for Sunrise Rotary Vero Beach and four other local Rotary Clubs. Each year the five Rotary Clubs of Indian River County unite to support efforts to eradicate the world of polio.

One hundred percent of the local funds raised from the collaboration goes to Polio Plus. The groups have raised more than $60,000 locally since Rotarian Arthur Hodge first came up with the Oktoberfest event in 2009.

The Rotary of Vero Beach, Rotary Club of Vero Beach Oceanside, Rotary Club of Orchid Island, Rotary Club of Vero Beach Sunrise and Rotary Club of Sebastian all gather for the Oktoberfest fundraiser.

More than 200 members and their guests enjoy a full German spread, beer, silent and live auctions, costume and beer stein contests.

The Rotary began working toward ridding the world of this horrible disease with a project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
