Save the Date: Mama Mia's Old Fashioned Italian Dinner Fundraiser - Sunday, October 30, 2016
Every year, my Rotary club, Sunrise Rotary of Gainesville holds a major fundraiser, “Mama Mia’s Old Fashioned Italian Dinner.” I’m one of the chairs of this year’s event which will be held the evening of Sunday, October 30th (the Sunday after the Florida/Georgia game) at Fresco Pizza and Pasta in the Haile Village Center.
Rotary members will prepare and serve an Italian dinner of lasagna, salad, vegetables, breadsticks and dessert. Wine and spirits are also available for purchase. We will also have a silent auction and several gift baskets for raffle at the event. It promises to be a fun-filled evening for the whole family with proceeds to support local charities including the Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Clubs, Reichert House, Climb for Cancer, Newberry High School Interact and more. This is our primary fundraising event of the year.
Meals are $25 per person and $10 for children. You can dine in, order a meal to go, or donate a meal to charity. Dinner tickets are available for purchase online now. The club is also seeking sponsors for the event with sponsorships starting at $100.
Sunrise Rotary of Gainesville is an active club of about 60 members who take pride in their community service projects. We are a group of committed professionals achieving remarkable goals through service to people and organizations.
