Gala

Each year the Gala committee plans and executes the major fundraiser/gala for the Club. The goal is to raise at least $165K that funds the philanthropic work of the Club the following year.

After celebrating our 100th year in 2014, the 2015 featured a Mardi Gras theme which included an amazing silent and live auction, live music by the Garage Band and stunning décor. The movie-themed 2016 Gala was titled “Lights! Camera! Auction!.” We would love for you to join us in our efforts! In 2017 the Gala theme was “Seize the Night” followed by the very elegant “Rotary Heroes Ball” in 2018.

The committee meets at the Gordon House on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 4 p.m.

For more information, contact Committee Chairs Sarah Janigian or Nanci Williams.
