Rotary hosting first Heart of The Community Gala
“All funds raised on February 14 will go back into our community. We have plans for more great projects like the new zip line for kids at Idlewid Park, the children’s water park at Rotary Park, the affordable housing at Rotary Scott Villa, the Rotary Way walking/biking trail through Cranbrook and the Annual Senior’s Christmas Dinner at Columbo Lodge, to name just a few,” said Club President Bill Bennett.
Rotary is a group of local citizens who work together with community partners to make our world a better place while having fun doing it. Rotary volunteers donate their time and resources because they love our community and genuinely desire to improve our quality of life. The Heart of Our Community Gala is a fund raiser to ensure Rotary can continue to add value to our community.
“In addition to a beautiful four course dinner with wine pairings, our gala is offering opportunities to buy some amazing items: private jet to a San Francisco ‘49ers game; a total makeover of your living room (The Bedroom, $5,000.00 gift certificate); Sunshine Houseboats vacation; Heidout private brew experience; 10 hungry people at the Firehall’s private room for dinner; two round trip tickets with WestJet anywhere in the world they fly; an $800 case of fine wine from Serendipity Winery; a solid wood handcrafted wine rack from Gipman’s full of fine wine; and much more,” described Bennett.
Tickets are $125 per person.
