The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill hosted their annual fundraiser last week at Bubba’s Bistro to have fun and more importantly raise funds to support the civic group’s initiatives to support those in need in our community.
Guests enjoyed appetizers, drinks, live music and camaraderie, and a raffle draw for a golf cart, a Traeger grill and a cash prize.
“We are grateful to all of our sponsors that made this event a success and to everyone who purchased tickets. Special thanks to Quality Cars and Carts for providing the golf cart, Royal Ace Hardware for providing the grill, and members of the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill for sponsoring the cash prize and raffle tickets,” said Rotary Club president Emily Kurilla “We were fortunate that our fundraiser attracted over $18,000 in sponsorship and ticket sales and this will enable us to continue to help people in our community.”
