Boorowa Rotary Club World Polio Day Event


The Rotary Club of Boorowa will be marking World Polio Day with a screening of the movie Outbreak.

Outbreak is a 1995 American medical disaster film directed by Wolfgang Petersen and based on Richard Preston’s non-fiction book, The Hot Zone. It stars Dustin Hoffman, Rene Russo and Morgan Freeman, and co-stars Cuba Gooding Jr, Kevin Spacey, Donald Sutherland and Patrick Dempsey. The film focuses on an outbreak of a fictional Ebola-like virus, Motaba, in Zaire and later in a small town in the United States.

The event will begin at 6pm at the Ex-Services Club, in time for a 6.30pm start for the movie.

Entry is a gold coin donation with all proceeds going to the Rotary End Polio campaign.
