The Orange Rotary Club will be having its 19th Annual Auction to benefit its Charitable Foundation on Friday, March 15. The event will be held at Race Brook Country Club, beginning at 6:30 pm; tickets are $37.50 each.
The evening will include a Dinner Buffet, Live and Silent Auction, and a Balloon Raffle. Tickets may be purchased by contacting Auction Chair Carl Russell at (203)783-9999 or firstname.lastname@example.org or through any Orange Rotarian.
Area businesses are invited to donate goods or services to help Rotary carry out its charitable endeavors.
All proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Orange Rotary’s initiatives both locally and abroad; the club contributes over $30,000 annually. Locally, they provide dictionaries to every third grader in Orange, register area children in the Amber Alert ID Program and make donations for the town food pantry and energy assistance program.
The last three years they have participated in “Operation Warm” and have donated thousands of coats to area schools and shelters to help keep underprivileged kids warm.
Additionally, the club awards $6,000 in college scholarships annually to high school seniors from Orange.
