In a display of global engagement and generosity, Charley and Sheila Dickey opened their beautiful Seattle home in May to host a house party aimed at raising funds for Malaria Partners International. The event, attended by local residents and other US-based supporters, highlighted Rotary’s commitment to global health, particularly malaria elimination.

Guests heard from Philip Welkhoff of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation about how their contributions are making a tangible difference in the fight against malaria. Malaria Partners International, a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating malaria from vulnerable communities, received an overwhelming show of support through the event’s fundraising efforts. The event raised nearly $25,000 to help end malaria, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.

“We believe that even small efforts can lead to significant impact,” Charley shared in his heartfelt address to the attendees. “By coming together tonight, we are contributing to a cause that transcends borders and saves lives.”

“The success of Charley and Sheila’s house party was not just measured in the funds raised, but also in the sense of community that enveloped the gathering” said Adriana Lanting, Chair of Malaria Partners International’s board of directors.
