“Set Sail,” “Fore”– Pearl Rotarians plan spring, summer fundraisers
An ocean cruise on Holland America Line…an afternoon of golf in nearby Newberg – both await supporters of Pearl Rotary’s new fundraisers.
The cruise (up to ten days) is the top prize in the Pearl Fund Raffle, launched this month. The winner can choose the tour for two from the line’s itineraries, a package valued at $5,400. The top prize was arranged through Willamette International Travel, represented in Pearl Rotary by Nancy Fowler.
Second prize is $800 in cash; third: a new iPad, 16gb with wifi (value: $499).
A maximum of 2,000 tickets are available at $10 each; they are being sold by Pearl Rotarians. The drawing will be Tuesday, June 19, 8 a.m., at a regular meeting of the club (Ecotrust, second-floor conference room, in Portland).
While the cruise winner is destined for an international trip, golfers who form foursomes will travel less than an hour for the Friday, July 27, Pearl Rotary Golf Tournament. Site of the inaugural event is the Chehalem Glenn Golf Course, Newberg. A shotgun start of 1:30 p.m. is set.
The four-person scramble was announced April 12 at the club’s board of directors meeting by Greg Mottau, fundraising chair. Joining him in the coordination are Jerry Baysinger, chair of the club’s non-profit Pearl Fund; Marc Hillman, PPRC president in 2013-14; and Jordan Weisman, international service chair.
Proceeds from both events will go to the Pearl Fund, the charitable arm which funds projects ranging from Open Meadow non-traditional school in Portland to the Suri School in suburban San Jose, Costa Rice; and from youth exchange through Rotary to the Boy Scouts; and to both the Interact (at Lincoln high school) and Rotaract (at Portland State University) Clubs.
