Concurrent with the 2019 "Changing of the Guard" event on June 26, there occurred additional fundraising opportunities for the 123 members and guests (a record #!) in attendance. Three opportunities presented themselves:  Silent Auction, 50/50 Raffle, & a Cork Pull.
The Silent Auction netted a total of $10,288. The 50/50 Raffle brought in an additional $1,000, and the Cork Pull netted $500. [The recipient of the 50/50 Raffle donated the $500 winnings back to the overall effort.] The grand total, to be added to the "Spikes for Types" proceeds, is therefore $11,788. The Elmbrook Rotary Foundation's Board of Directors is responsible for distribution of these monies via grant requests and other community charity involvement.
Sincere thanks to all ERC members (especially committee members) and guests for a wonderful gala evening and successful fundraising efforts!
