The Rotary Club of Golden will be hosting a special gala evening in support of The Early Learning and Care Stakeholder Action Group (ELCSAG).

“This is going to be a pretty significant event for us,” said President of the Rotary Club of Golden, Greg Ehman. “The gala is essentially two things. It is to celebrate the 108th birthday of the Rotary Club, and two, and more importantly, it is to bring to the forefront an important cause.”

The cause Ehman spoke of is the need for a better early learning and care centre for vulnerable children in Golden.

“We have taken the opportunity to celebrate Rotary’s birthday with the fundraiser for a great cause,” he said.

Organizers for the event are very excited to help a group which has passed on inspiration to the Rotarians.

“Rotary was lucky to have The Early Learning and Care Stakeholder Action Group (ELCSAG) group come and do a presentation at one of our regular meetings. As a result of this presentation it inspired everyone to want to be more involved,” said Rotary member Lori Baxendale.

Ehman added the night will be a great time for those people who come out to attend.

“I think we are going to have a heck of a good time. The goal to come with full wallets and prepare to leave empty,” Ehman said laughing. “It is going to be an epic fundraiser to really bring Rotary, and more importantly, the cause to the community.”

“It is built as a gala to evoke  a certain type of feeling but it is a night out. It is a chance to dress up, go out and have a good time,” Baxendale added.

There will be dinner and music at the event along with the chance to sit at a special V.I.P. table that will have some surprises waiting for the lucky winners.

“People will have the opportunity to enter into a draw to be moved up to the V.I.P. table. Besides from the table being beautiful there will be some unbelievable nice treats for those lucky enough to sit at the table,” Baxendale said.

Additionally there will be a new spin on a 50/50 draw where there will be great odds of winning.

Donations are also being given to the club for a silent auction which will be held at the event.

Anyone looking to buy tickets or making a donation for the event can talk to any Rotarian or drop by The Golden Star.
