The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill will host a beach–themed fundraiser Saturday, Feb. 8, which will feature The Swingin’ Medallions live in concert at the Richmond Hill City Center.
The casual-dress event will start at 6:30 p.m. and include hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and a silent auction before the concert.
According to the group’s website, medallions.com, the Swingin’ Medallions began in the early 1960s and hail from the Greenwood, S.C. area. The group’s record “Double Shot (of My Baby’s Love)” was a million-seller in 1966. The Medallions also had top-40 hits with “She Drives Me Out of My Mind” in 1966 and “Hey, Hey, Baby” in 1967.
“We are very excited to have secured the Swingin’ Medallions for our annual fundraiser...” club President Larry Barker said. “We have targeted to raise close to $20,000 through sponsorship, ticket sales and our silent and live auctions.
“The money raised enables us to give back to our community throughout the year with initiatives like the senior citizens programs, educational sponsorships such as the J.D. Gardner Scholarship, good causes like The Matthew Freeman Foundation and the Presidents Fund, which help our local schools as well as remembering international Rotary initiatives, such as Alzheimer’s research and polio eradication.”
Tickets are $60 per person, which includes food, entertainment and dancing.
Sponsorship packages also are available. Logos and accreditation of businesses and individuals sponsoring the event will appear on promotional materials.
Pavilion and Umbrella sponsors are guaranteed reserved seating at the event.
Sponsorship levels available include: Pavilion, 12 tickets for $1,500; Umbrella, eight tickets for $1,000; Beach Ball, four tickets for $500; and Sand Dollars, two tickets for $250.
