The President’s Corner

March 13, 2017

Hello Rotaract and Friends! A huge thank you to Brentley Stead of GastroJax for speaking with us last Thursday. Rotaract will be volunteering with GastroJax’s signature event, GastroFest, this weekend. Check them out here!

A special thank you to all who came out to support the Gala at BJ’s Brew House. It was great to see such a large crowd! Don’t forget to save the date for our other events at Chipotle and Jason’s Deli. More information below.

Don’t forget, the Black Tie Blue Jeans Gala is quickly approaching. Over the next three weekends, we are asking each of of members (and anyone else of course) to start ‘gala scouting.’ We need you to pound the pavement and ask local businesses to donate items for the silent auction and food for the hors d’oeuvres. Contact your committee chair or Sara Corrigan for more info or to sign up for a time/location. If you think this is an impossible task, check out all of the great items Katie, Ali, Jonny, and Andrew picked up in a single day:
