On one single night you could enjoy a sponsored happy hour, a delicious buffet, a live auction (with items including a luxury Rodeo package, a romantic vacation, fishing and hunting trips, and other premier items)…and a raffle to win a two-year lease on a 2014 Chevy Camaro. Not only that, but all the money raised will go to support multiple local Fort Bend charities and international initiatives. Sugar Land Rotary and title sponsor Classic Chevrolet Sugar Land are proud to host the third annual Fall Classic Charity Fundraiser on September 13, 2014, from 6:30-11:00 p.m. at Constellation Field. Don Kerstetter, owner of Classic Chevrolet Sugar Land, says, “Our mission in Rotary 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. Our annual Fall Classic 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!”
This year’s theme is “Pay it Forward,” a true Rotary tradition! 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. Admission is only $100.00 per person and every two admission tickets include a FREE raffle ticket, so bring a friend! Each ticket includes entry, the complimentary Happy Hour sponsored by Bud Light and Silver Eagle Distributors, a buffet including multiple theme foods and a dessert bar, any non-alcoholic drinks (a cash bar will be available), and access to the live auction events and bid boards. You’ll even get a chance to win prizes instantly with a spin of the traditional Rotary wheel!
Rotary member, Dr. Rebecca Deurlein says, “During the Happy Hour, many of our local charities will have booths set up so you get to know more about the different areas impacted by your donation. Organizations we support include: the Artist Alliance of Sugar Land, Child Advocates, Second Mile Ministries, The Arc of Fort Bend County, Boots and Badges, Honoring American Heroes, Fort Bend Boys Choir, Fort Bend Seniors Meals on Wheels, Rainbow Room, Fort Bend Women’s Center, Fort Bend Education Foundation…and many more! Every dollar you bid during our auction or on our bid board will go towards these and many other worthy causes.”
Last year, the Sugar Land Rotary Fall Classic raised over $70,000 with most of the proceeds going to Fort Bend charities…and this year’s goal is set at over $100,000. With amazing live auction packages like a romantic getaway to an oceanfront condo (one week in peak season, two weeks in off season) in St. Augustine, a Luxury Suite Package for 16 to the 2015 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, fishing and hunting packages, special spa retreats, and more…there’s a reason for everyone to get excited! In addition to the thrill of the live auction, you’ll be able to walk around and bid on party packages, weekend getaways, tickets to Sugar Land events, and more through the bid board. And raffle tickets for the two-year lease on a brand new Chevy Camaro are already going fast!
Sugar Land Rotary has created a home run event…so don’t wait! Buy your event and raffle tickets from Classic Chevrolet Sugar Land, from any Rotarian or online at www.rotaryfallclassic.org…before they’re gone!
