LOCAL CHARITY SUPPORT

At each concert, the club will make a charitable $7,500 donation to a designated local charity. The evening will feature the opportunity to bid on silent auction items, but there will be no speeches or presentations, no auctioneer, no paddle raise and no rubber chicken dinner. Just an opportunity for our club to support a good local cause and for our members to participate at their own discretion.
