UPCOMING RAFFLES
NOVEMBER 13 - The first will be as a part of a Vocational Raffle given by Jack Kennedy.  Jack is donating a replica of the USS Constitution Ship's wheel valued at $400.  Have a nautical lover in your life?  This is a chance to give them a special gift. (Providing you participate in and win the raffle.)  Of wood and brass this wheel spans more than 30".  Typical monthly raffle ticket prices will be increased on Nov. 13 for this item...but well worth it.  
 
NOVEMBER 20 - If you are a Cigar Aficionado, or someone who wants to impress their favorite brother-in-law during the Thanksgiving Holidays, or a Buckeye Fan who wants to celebrate the upcoming WINS we are sure to have…. READ ON!
 
A box of 25 Cuban Cohiba Cigars was generously donated by Carol Garner, a Past Columbus Rotary President with many ties to Cuba, to our Derby Day Event. The value of the cigars is $450.  The recipient of the these cigars, John Easton, is giving Rotarians the opportunity to enjoy these very aromatic, special production cigars with a donation to the Club Foundation. 
 
Here’s how it will work:
 
  • Buy the box of 25 to share with your friends or family. Value $450. The highest bidder over $500 wins! Consider going together with a couple of friends to buy the box – the value is great! Send your bid to Scott via email by Nov 17. We have an offer from a non-cigar smoking Rotarian to chip in an additional $5 per cigar if all cigars are sold!
  • If we don’t have a buyer for the box by Nov 17, we will sell them individually at our Rotary meeting right before Thanksgiving. 1=$25, 2 or more =$20 per.

2017 Annual Service Campaign

At the end of our first month of Columbus Rotary Foundation's Annual Service Campaign we are happy to report that we are more than half way to our our $80,000 goal collecting $44,000.  Unfortunately our Goal of 100% participation is not raising as fast as the donated dollars.  Just 30% of our members have donated to the campaign.

Donating is easy.   Pay with your credit card on a Monday.  Write a check.  Go online HERE right now.  

We are focused on 100% participation of all Columbus Rotarians in this campaign.  If everyone helps, with whatever they can afford, our fundraising goal will be exceeded.  Donate today!  No amount will be turned away.  The thermometer's red level shows our participation.
