Chester Rotary Club Fundraiser

Posted on February 8, 2017 · Posted in Bulletin Board

Do you support a nonprofit program that benefits our local community? Do you need to raise money? If so, the Chester Rotary Club and the Chester Hose Company want to help! Here’s how:

Participate in the April Fools’ Longest Dinner Table event on April 1st by purchasing a table of 8 tickets at $200 and in the weeks following the event you will get back 80% ($160) of your investment. Plus, we will identify your charity as an “Event Beneficiary” so that anyone else buying tickets at $25 may designate $20 back to support your local cause! The more people you get to come to the event, the more money you get back.

It’s a win-win-win event! We are going to have a great band – CJ West and the Downtown Train. The event takes place at the Chester Fire House. The theme for the night is humor, given April Fools’ Day and all. The sooner you commit the longer you have to promote your cause!

If you aren’t familiar with the “longest dinner table” concept, here’s how it works: In addition to raising money for the cause of your choice, your ticket gets you a place at the table; a chance to laugh along with old friends and meet new ones; and the opportunity to listen and dance to live music! You bring your own food, beverages, table settings and décor. If you want, come in costume, decorate your table and show lots of enthusiasm, and your group may win prizes! Also make sure to bring information about the cause you are supporting.

It’s an easy way to make money and have fun! If you are interested in learning more please contact any Chester Rotarian and we will get you all the details.

Act quickly so that you have more time to sell tickets! We can accommodate a large crowd but if we reach capacity we’ll need to cap ticket sales. We hope to hear from you soon.
