Now we can DO MORE GOOD!
After the Rotary Club of North Clackamas-Sunrise was chartered in 2002, one of the first things we needed was a fundraiser. On Saturday, March 14 our club celebrated our 13th Annual “Humanity in Motion” Bowl-A-FUN. This year’s event was by far our most successful ever, raising almost $13,000! This was truly a TEAM effort. So many people contributed to our overall success that hopefully I don’t forget anyone.
Bowl-A-Fun SUPER STARS
In an effort to recognize our SUPER STARS, we need to first start with Fred Bachofner. What he does “behind the scenes” is unmatched. None of our fundraisers would enjoy the success we have had without Fred. Next we need to recognize our TWO Lead Sponsors, Andy Kahut with Kahut Waste Services & Terry Mohr with Carson Oil, along with our Supporting Sponsors, Steve Schwab with Sunset Garbage & Al Jeck with Columbia Bank. Thanks Guys for your continued support.
Our Bowl-A-FUN got off to a great start when Kelli Kneip said she wanted to donate a 55” Flat Screen TV as a Raffle Prize. This was a HUGE jump start. Next,Margaret Harbaugh put together FIVE Teams!! Her sister, Laurie Hill from Dallas, TX donated $1600 to help with our Dictionary Project & Oregon Battle of the Books Reading Competition. That’s pretty amazing.
SILENT AUCTION DONORS
Our SILENT AUCTION DONORS helped immensely. First, want to thank Dan Fullerton & his Allstate connection with the Altmans for continuing to donate their 2 Vacation homes. Dodie Schmaltz stepped up to donate her Maui Condo, then Rae Yau donated a Vacation Home on the Oregon Coast. Todd Caldwell agreed to donate 100-Level Blazer tickets & then added a 2nd pair of tickets to DOUBLE the income. Eric Truitt came up with the idea to put together a case of Assorted Wines (12+2). As a result of all of these efforts, we raised more than $2500 from our SILENT AUCTION. Want to thank all our TEAM & LANE SPONSORS & RAFFLE PRIZE DONORS for their support. We made a record $2400 from RAFFLE PRIZE sales, thanks to all the great prizes, especially Kelli’s Flat Screen TV.
Big TY to everyone who was a Greeter, helped with Registration, sold Raffle tickets, helped with food, Raffle Prizes, etc. This was a Great TEAM EFFORT. Last, but certainly not least, is the great job that Jim Davis of Davis Digital does for ALL the great graphic work he does for all of our Fundraisers. Truly amazing.
Thanks again, for everyone’s participation. This truly was a TEAM EFFORT. Great Job!
