We hope you can attend!
 
This year, we are holding a Virtual Pandemic raffle to raise funds for our Annual Service Grants.  We would like to collect restaurants’ gift certificates, and bottles of wine and liquor to be raffled during the month of May.  This is an excellent opportunity for you to support your favorite small business restaurants and liquor shop owners both locally, as well as your Rotary Club.  
 
It would be wonderful if every member could donate both a bottle of their favorite wine or liquor and at least one $25 restaurant gift card.  In addition, sponsorships for our website will be available for sale.  

Raffle tickets will be $10 each.  One hundred percent of all proceeds will go to our local Grants Fund.  Last year’s grant gifts total was $10,000.   Would it be wonderful to not only meet but exceed this amount during a pandemic year, where there are many deserving organizations serving our most needed citizens?   You could make this possible. 
 
All grants will be awarded on June 11, 2021, during our regular meeting.   I hope you will feel as excited as I am with this Raffle.  I am grateful to our Board of Directors, and especially to Marie Angelides for organizing this fundraiser.  
 
Three ways to support our Rotary Foundation
 
Every November, we celebrate The Rotary Foundation. Your support and generous gifts to the Foundation make it possible for us to be people of action and engage in life-changing projects worldwide. Here are three ways you can help maximize the effectiveness of our year-end giving campaigns and increase the amount of good we can do:
  1. Encourage your members to make a gift to the Foundation on Giving Tuesday, which is 1 December. Share our video message
  2. Give the gift of Rotary this holiday season. Share our digital flyer with members and potential donors.
  3. Learn more about our new peer-to-peer fundraising tool, Raise for Rotary, where you can create fundraising pages that are easy to share with family and friends through social media and email.
 
 

Please take a moment to log into your Rotary ClubRunner account to make sure our contact information on you is current.  Please look especially at your mailing addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. With our Club meeting virtually until further notice this contact information is even more important. This may be the only way fellow club members can reach you.
 
BTW: If you don't know your user ID and password just drop an email to Rick Lee. Your personal information is NOT available to the general public on ClubRunner, only to other members of our own Club.
