Rotary Dinner and Auction
The Rotary Club of Peterborough will hold its annual Dinner & Auction charity fundraiser on Friday, April 28, 2023.
It will be the Club's first in-person auction in three years. Location: Peterborough Golf & Country Club, starting at 6 p.m.
The auction will benefit the RISE Youth Housing Program of the YES Shelter for Youth & Families, as one of the Club's 100th Anniversary commitments. Auction proceeds will also go to Rotary's other good works in our community.
Auction tickets are $150 per person, of which $70 comes back to the buyer in the form of a charitable tax receipt. So just buying a ticket helps the fundraiser. The evening will feature a gourmet dinner with wine and appetizers, live classical music, and wonderful camaraderie.
