That’s the theme of the 5th annual Fall Classic Charity Fundraiser hosted by Sugar Land Rotary and title sponsor UpClose Magazine on September 23, 2017 from 6:30-10:00 p.m. at Safari Texas.
Jim Munnell, president of Sugar Land Rotary, says, “The Rotary mission is ‘Service Above Self’—in the community, the workplace, and throughout the world. I’m proud to say the Sugar Land Rotary has been actively involved in supporting Fort Bend charities that help children at risk, fight poverty, hunger, and illiteracy, and make a positive impact on our community. Rotary’s annual Fall Classic Casino Night is our only fundraiser…and we encourage everyone to come out for a great night that will make a difference in the lives of others!”
At this “Casino Night” evening you will enjoy a sponsored happy hour, fantastic food, fellowship, fun casino games, a live auction and bid board (items include a Galveston guided fishing trip, Houston Rockets and Houston Astros ticket packages, an estate planning package and more)…and a raffle to win round trip airfare and two nights in Las Vegas! Not only that, all money raised will go to support multiple local Fort Bend charities and the Rotary Foundation’s international initiatives.
Supporting the Fall Classic Charity Fundraiser means you’ll have a wonderful night out…and that night will send positive ripples throughout our community and the world. Event tickets are $100, which includes the complimentary Happy Hour, fabulous food, any non-alcoholic drinks (a cash bar will be available), and access to the live auction events and bid boards. Raffle tickets are $50. Sponsorship levels range from $500 (Nickel Bet) to $10,000 (Pit Boss level!). Sponsors receive media focus and event exposure, as well as other event night perks based on sponsorship level.
This year’s event chairs are Laura Winters and Jared Jameson. Laura says, “Every dollar you bid during the auction or on the bid board will go toward a worthy cause. Organizations supported by Sugar Land Rotary include: Fort Bend Literacy Council, Fort Bend Women’s Center, The Arc of Fort Bend County, Boots and Badges, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, YIP, The Rose B. Johnson Foundation…and many more! Our goal is to raise over $100,000 for these worthy causes.” That’s a great reason for everyone to get excited…and raffle tickets for the Las Vegas weekend are already going fast!
“We are so grateful to UpClose Magazine and all of our sponsors for helping us host this fabulous event,” adds Jared. “Visit www.rotaryfallclassic.org to buy your raffle tickets, event tickets, purchase a sponsorship or make a donation. Raffle tickets, event tickets and sponsorships can also be purchased from any Rotarian. Get a ticket before they’re gone…you will not be disappointed!”
