For 2021 Winterama is being re-imagined as we respond to COVID-19 into a virtual event Winterama 2.0..! Watch this space as our plans evolve.
Winterama is a FUN AND FUNDRAISING PROJECT promoted by the Rotary Clubs of: Hepworth–Shallow Lake, Port Elgin, Southampton, & Tara held in early February each year for the benefit of Children’s and Youth Programs in Grey and Bruce Counties.
Prior to COVID 19 individual participants and groups solicit cash pledges of support for their involvement in: ice-skating, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, curling, and snowmobiling.
Proceeds are split between the participating schools and the participating Rotary Clubs.
Over $525,000 has been distributed back to local schools and the community in the past 18 years. 
Cash and in-kind sponsorships from area businesses are also sought to support the effort. Participants submit their pledge sheets and funds at one of the Winterama locations and take part in the events of the day.
Food is served at each venue, followed by a short program of thanks and awards.
School-related events and activities form an integral part of Winterama.
