Chair: Sally Graham
The Fundraising/Social Committee is directly in charge of ideas for, implication of and follow-up of fund raising activities for our Club. We meet several times during the year to discuss Fundraising ideas such as signatures events that would take place every 3 to 5 years, in order to make a larger profit, thus benefiting more organizations in need. We have planned an upcoming Road Rally and Silent Auction Dinner, and a Trivia Night. Our Trivia Night and Murder Mystery last year were both very successful, funding Boys and Girls Club, Southwest Early Childhood Learning Center and our Global Grant. The fundraising committee is constantly striving to find fun, exciting, profitable events to benefit our Club, our Community and the World.
The other aspect of the committee is the Social Committee. We decided to implement "Fifth Friday" gathering as another method for our members to get to know each other and enjoy time together outside of the Club meetings. The first event was in conjunction with Trivia Night, the second was a very successful Hog Roast. Our third Fifth Friday event is coming up October 30 and will be a Halloween Gathering. Our last event will be a Christmas Party including all of the Rotary Clubs in Jefferson City.
The Fundraising/Social Committee is an intricate part of our Club, it continually strives to bring our members together and Service Above Self to our Community and is looking forward to a very successful 2015-2016. If you have ideas for future fundraising or social events or would like to be a part of our exciting committee, please contact Sally Graham.
