Over the past 37 years the Wild Game Feast has become not only the largest annual fundraising event for the Gainesville area Rotary Clubs, but also one of the most highly anticipated and well-attended such event in the entire Gainesville area community. During that time the Rotary Clubs of Gainesville Foundation has raised over $2.25 million for worthy local charitable organizations. The event began in 1985 when a group of Alachua County Rotarians got together to raise money for the Scholarship house – to provide support for UF students in need of room and board assistance. The pursuant fundraiser was held at a site east of Gainesville known today as the Rotary Conservation Area at Hatchet Creek. With its vast open layout and rugged natural outdoor beauty, the site has proven to be an elegant venue for Rotarians, friends and other community members to enjoy superb, unique food and casual, genuine fellowship as we support wonderful local charities.
