Dear Friend of Rotary,
As President of Rotary Club of Upland, I am honored to serve as the Chairperson for our Annual Rotary Lobsterfest. This year’s event will be held on Saturday September 21, 2019 at the Scheu Family YMCA, 1150 E. Foothill Blvd, Upland, CA 91786. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. We will offer a special, pre-event premium wine tasting starting at 5:00 p.m. General admission pricing is $90 per person. Pre-event tickets are an additional $25.00, paid in advance.
Funds raised from this event help support our club’s local community projects such as our “Just Read” program that fosters reading through the donation of books to our local elementary school students; Teen Leadership Camps; and our annual Christmas/Holiday shopping event for children. We also support and participate in Rotary’s various international projects, including “Rotaplast,” which provides free cleft lip/cleft palate surgery for children worldwide.
We invite you to attend this exciting Lobsterfest event to support our charitable work while enjoying a fun-filled evening of all-you-can-eat fresh cooked lobster, tri-tip, coleslaw, rolls, and desserts; tickets for wine and craft beer; live music and a silent auction.
The greatest success is found in the fundraising for this event. There are multiple ways you can support this cause, including sponsorships and donations. Donations for our silent auction are welcomed. Sponsorship opportunities are available as follows:
Platinum: $10,000: Reserved table for 8 (lobster and tri-tip; or vegetarian dinners); 8 tickets for the pre-event premium wine tasting; personal table service (no standing in lines); premium wine served at the table; program recognition; website recognition; and personalized event banner.
