Wellington, FL - May 18, 2012 -
The Wellington Rotary Club honored Mason Phelps by giving him the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Award. Julie Tannehill, of Phelps Media Group International, accepted the award, at today's Wellington Rotary Club's luncheon. This award was given to Phelps in recognition of his continuous and outstanding support of the Wellington Rotary Club's fundraising efforts over the past years.
The Paul Harris Fellow Award is named after the founder of Rotary International, and is used to recognize those who have helped to raise or have donated money to Rotary International and who have exemplified the mission of Rotary---to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty in the world.
The Wellington Rotary Club has partnered with Phelps Media on many fundraising events, and most recently on the Gay Polo League Tournament weekend held in Wellington in April. Wellington Rotary hosted the Victory Party after the final polo match, which was a sold-out event attended by over 240 polo enthusiasts, tournament players and local supporters.
Tom Eastwood, Wellington's Rotary International Chairman and Karen Hardin, Wellington Rotary President, presented the Paul Harris Fellow Award to Julie Tannehill, of Phelps Media Group International. "Mason is unable to be here, today, but he is extremely honored to receive this award. We at Phelps Media are so pleased to have the Wellington Rotary Club involved in our GPL event and are happy to be able to utilize the community's support of GPL to help raise funds for your club's philanthropic efforts. A great partnership for the good of all", stated Julie Tannehill, general manager of Phelps Media Group International.
