Get Ready To Have A Great Time

Circle City Annual Fire & Ice Chili Cook-Off & Craft Beer Festival

Fire and Ice is the signature annual fundraiser hosted by Circle City Rotary. It is a fun event that allows attendees to sample great craft beers, taste many different kinds of terrific chili made on site by dozens of contestants in the Chili Cook Off, listen to live music by a fantastic band, and to help multiple local non-profit organizations in the process.

All net proceeds from the event go to support local non-profit organizations in the Corona, Norco, Eastvale, and Riverside areas. Circle City Rotary is a service organization that has no paid staff, so the overhead for the event is very low. This allows the club to funnel a high percentage of the money raised to the organizations that need it. Below are a few of the organizations that benefit from this unique event.

About Us

Rotary International’s Motto is “Service Above Self”. Our club makes a difference locally in The Inland Empire and internationally with projects targeting community service needs that address many of today’s critical issues such as children at risk, poverty, hunger, health, and violence.

Rotary International is the largest International non-profit service organization in the world, with over 1.2 million members around the globe.

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:

1) The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service

2) High ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society

3) The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business, and community life

4) The advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

100% of the net proceeds from this event will be used directly to fund benevolent service projects right here in our own backyard as well as in other countries, where the need is greatest and we make a difference in people’s quality of life.
