Tickets are available now for the 20th annual Dinner and Auction hosted by the Jefferson Rotary Club. The gala will be Friday evening, Nov. 9, in the Greene Room at Wild Rose Casino and Resort in Jefferson.

Since 1999, the annual event has raised more than $540,000 that has supported programs for local schools and youth, community projects, and the humanitarian projects of Rotary International and Rotary District 6000.

“The dinner and auction have become a much-anticipated social event each November,” said auction chair Joel Williams. “It’s a chance to get together with friends, enjoy a delicious dinner, and raise money for worthwhile community causes. There’s a wide variety of items on both the silent auction and the live auction, and with professional auctioneer Dave Whitaker returning for another auction, we know it will be a fun evening.”

This year’s buffet dinner will feature  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, games of chance and bidding on the silent auction 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.

Highlights of the live auction will be an African safari and a one-week stay in a condo in Hawaii. There will be tickets for sporting events, travel get-aways, entertainment, gift certificates for services by local professionals and much more.

November 4, the Jefferson Rotary Club will stage the 18th Annual Charity Auction and Dinner. We are working to expand this event by moving to a new location, the Greene Events Center at the Wild Rose Casino located at the northwest corner of the intersections of Highways 30 and 4 north of Jefferson. We want to create an event with regional impact.

We extend an offer to Rotary Clubs in West Central Iowa so they can benefit from participating in this Charity Auction and Dinner. When Rotarians and their guests fill the seats for a table (8) or more at the event the Jefferson Rotary Club will pass on 20% of those Rotarians' successful live auction bids to their club. For example, eight guests from the Coon Rapids Club creates a Coon Rapids table. When those Coon Rapids Rotarians are the successful bidders on a live auction item then twenty percent of the winning bid goes to their club. We are promoting and rewarding participation.

Tickets for the Jefferson Rotary Charity Auction and Dinner are $40 per person. We ask that Rotarians from a club allow us to seat them together and introduce them as a group. Our social time begins at 5:30 PM. Supper will begin being served at 6:30 PM. The Auction will follow supper. Our goal is to have you on your way home before 10:00 PM. Although our new Cobblestone Inn right next to the Greene Events Center would be a lovely place to stay.

Won't you join us for this effort to create a regional event benefiting Rotary Clubs in West Central Iowa. Talk this auction up at your club, recruit participants, and register for dinner tickets online using this link:


When Rotarians log in using their ClubRunner ID and password then their information for registering is auto filled by ClubRunner.
