The Rotary Club of Orlando has been a longtime supporter of various organizations in Central Florida. On March 14, 2015, the Rotary Club of Orlando hosted the Great Orlando Swan Boat Race at Lake Eola Park. The first event of its kind, teams raced in heats to determine who would be the Grand Champion. The Rotary Club has earmarked funds raised from the event to purchase an ADA accessible swan boat for public use at Lake Eola Park.
