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. 15, 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.

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:
