Tickets are available now at www.jeffersonrotary.org for the 21st annual Dinner and Auction hosted by the Rotary Club of Jefferson. The gala will be Friday evening, Nov. 8, at the Greene Room at Wild Rose Casino in Jefferson.
Since 1999, the annual event has raised more than $580,000 that has supported programs for local schools and youth, community projects, and the humanitarian projects of Rotary International and Rotary District 6000.
“We’re excited to be entering the third decade of hosting this fun and worthwhile event,” said auction chair Carol Durbin. “It’s a chance to get together with friends, enjoy a delicious dinner, and raise money for important community causes. With great food, a wide variety of items on the silent and live auctions, and professional auctioneer Dave Whitaker to provide a fast-paced auction, we know it will be an entertaining evening.”
This year’s buffet dinner will include prime rib and chicken, with several sides and tempting desserts. As in previous years, there will be complimentary wine on the tables.
A social hour will begin at 5:30 pm. The buffet will start at 6:30 and the live auction will follow. Bidding on silent auction items will begin when doors open and continue through the evening.
Tickets are available now at www.jeffersonrotary.org at a cost of $50 each.
Persons who want more information about tickets can call Durbin at 515-302-8050 or Adam Pedersen at 515-370-5066.
