Night of nights

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

IT’S one of the big­gest nights of the year for any Air­lie Beach Ro­tar­ian and this Thurs­day they plan to show off just how great it is to be in your lo­cal Ro­tary group.

Not only will the an­nual com­mu­nity raf­fle be drawn at the Ju­bilee Tav­ern tonight, but the Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach will launch a membership drive.

The raf­fle is all about the com­mu­nity, giv­ing sport­ing and non-profit groups the chance to raise as much money as they can with­out any out­lay.

One hun­dred per cent of all ticket sales are re­turned to the in­volved club or or­gan­i­sa­tion as soon as the raf­fle is drawn.

The year’s prizes in­clude $10,000 cash, a mas­ter sail­ing trip with Char­ter Yachts Australia and more.

The Ju­bilee Tav­ern will host up to 150 peo­ple from the sport­ing and non-profit groups who par­tic­i­pated in the raf­fle.

Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach pres­i­dent Al­lan Robin­son is also hop­ing to score a cou­ple of new mem­bers on the night.

“It’s a very re­ward­ing role,” he said.

“The club is very in­volved in the com­mu­nity and we need more mem­bers, new mem­bers, to share the load.”

They hope to gain young pro­fes­sion­als who share the Ro­tary vi­sion.

Ro­tary is a world­wide or­gan­i­sa­tion of more than 1.2 mil­lion pro­fes­sional men and women who are ac­knowl­edged as lead­ers in their com­mu­ni­ties and who put the ideal of ser­vice into ac­tion.

Ro­tar­i­ans pledge to main­tain high eth­i­cal stan­dards in their vo­ca­tions and to serve their own com­mu­ni­ties as they ad­vance in­ter­na­tional un­der­stand­ing and peace.

If you are in­ter­ested in the Ro­tary Club of Air­lie Beach, con­tact ad­min­is­tra­tor Dal­wyn McEr­lane on 0408 461 192.
