Rotary Auction features burlesque troupe, Nov. 23

Tickets are now available for the annual dinner and auction

It’s big, bold and entertainment.

The annual Rotary dinner and auction is presenting, for the first time in Mission, an evening of burlesque with a Vancouver-based professional burlesque dance troupe, great music, and entertainment galore, Nov. 23 at the Best Western Mission City Lodge.

Best of all, it is in aid of local and international youth projects supported by the Rotary Clubs of Mission.

Every year graduates from each Mission high school receive scholarships which help make university more affordable. Children who don’t normally have the opportunity to attend summer camps are sponsored by Rotarians to attend Camp Jubilee for a week in Deep Cove.

Youth (ages 18 to 24) attend the week-long Rotary Youth Leadership camp where they learn leadership skills. In addition, the proceeds will sponsor high school students to attend an international exchange, RCMP Youth Academy, and a weekend-long youth camp for 15 to 17 year olds.

“As Rotarians, we believe that by building the leadership capacity of our youth, we are contributing to the well-being of our future,” says Stacey Crawford, Rotary Club of Mission mid-day president.

Scholarship winner Deanna Carrao says that Rotary’s support not only aids her financially, but “it reminds me I am not alone in this journey as I continue my education.”

Local businesses have been generously providing table sponsorships, prizes and live auction items, says Crawford. The entertainment and games planned for the evening make it the perfect place to host a staff Christmas part. Tickets are only $75 a person or $500 for a table of eight. For tickets e-mail president@rotarymissionmidday.ca or call 604-302-8979.
