Board Member: 

This is a list of our regular fundraising events and what the funds are used for.

Rotary Golf Tournament

This event is typically held in September or October of each year.  Revenue comes from Teams and Sponsors.  We average $7,000 to $8,000 in revenue and $3,200 to $3,500 in expenses.  This gives us a net income of $3,800 to $4,500

Rotary Pancake Breakfast          

This event is typically held in March or April of each year.

Ticket revenues average between $2,700 and $3,000. Expenses average between $300 and $400.  This gives us a net income of $2,400 to $2,600.

Funds from this event and the Golf Tournament are used primarily to fund our Teacher Grants program (average $3,000 to $3,500 per year) as well as the HOBY and RYLA scholarships that the club provides each year (average $1,000 to $1,500).

This event is typically held in May or June of each year.Revenues come from ticket sales, Silent Auction and Split the Pot.  Revenues have ranged from $27,000 to as high as $31,500.  Expenses are typically $17,000 to $19,500.  This gives us between $10,000 and $12,000 net income.

25% of the net revenue is put into the Rotary Scholarship fund and the balance is used to provide scholarships for that year.  We average $8,500 to $9,000 in annual scholarships and approximately $3,000 going to the Scholarship fund
