Flight started in 2008 with the idea of commissioning local artists to paint butterfly forms for auction by the club.
Since 2008, hundreds of beautiful butterflies have been created and sold at our annual auction to bidders throughout the country not only in Colorado but in Pennsylvania, Texas, and California.
That tradition continues in 2022. Through the generosity of our sponsors and bidders we have been able to generate funds to support a myriad of projects.
The net revenue from FLIGHT benefits Colorado Springs local schools and service projects for the entire city.
Support for science, technology, and the arts in area school
Individual post-high school scholarships for deserving students in our community
Individual recognition and awards for high school teachers
Dental care for children in need
Support for international projects of Rotary Clubs in Ghana, Uganda, Nicaragua, Italy, and Ethiopia
