It’s time for our club’s Annual Gala 2014
Date: Saturday, February 22, 2014
Time: 6:00pm to 11:00pm
Where: Shenandoah Valley Golf Club
(This ticket is included in Club member dues)
It is important that you let the committee know if you will not be attending for headcount purposes. You will still be entered in the drawing for the grand prizes if you cannot attend. Extra tickets are available for sale and we encourage you to invite your friends to join you! Tickets were distributed at last week’s meeting and will be available each week for pick-up. Remember to return your ticket stubs for the drawing.
Our committee has been working for several months to put together a memorable evening filled with spirit of Old Havana, a few key points of the evening will include: Mojitos & full open bar, Ms. Rotary Havana Contest, Cuisine with a Cuban Twist, Salsa Dancing Lessons, Live Music by Vinyl Tracks, Silent Auction and our new Wine Wall Grab! Also, your ticket enters you in the drawing for $2000,$1000, or $500 Cash.
We could use your help in a few ways:
- Help us acquire auction items. This is the biggest money making feature of the Annual Gala. Help our club by seeking out donations for the silent auction. We could use everyone’s help in this area!
- We are adding a new event this year, A Wine Wall Grab. We are asking you to donate a bottle or two of wine to this endeavor, you could bring them to our meetings for the next few weeks and we will have a collection box there. How does it work? You buy a chance for $10 and pull a number and wine the corresponding to the number is yours to take home!
- Sell extra tickets to your friends. We have several Rotarians that make this an annual event with a group of non-Rotarian friends, and we encourage you to do the same!
- It’s very important that you let us know if you will be attending. It really cuts down on the cost of the event and maximizes the amount of money we raise for the club and our projects in the community.
Lastly, we will be accepting table reservations for Parties of 8. Please let us know at the meetings if you would like to reserve a table.
Thanks for all your help in advance!
