It is now only 12 days until the Rotary Club of Ankeny's, "Raise the Stakes for Community" fundraiser to be held on October 16th.  The fun will begin at 5:00 PM when the gaming tables open for play and the acrobats  start performing.   The buffet line for dinner will open at 6:30.  The program including, "Heads or Tails" and the live auction will begin at 8:00 PM. 
All auction items are now available on-line.  There are 21 live items, under "Featured Items" and about 100 silent auction items.  The value of all items is over $56,000!  To view the silent auction items and start bidding on them, go to our web site, and then click on the “Silent Auction Bidding”.   You will need to put in the Bidder ID you were assigned when you bought your tickets and the password you created.    
We have sold 400 tickets but we still have about 100 "Guest of" for the name.  If you have not done it yet, please forward the names and the email addresses of your guests to Nate at, as soon as you have the names.  They can register the night of the event but entering their name in advance will speed up registration and allow them to start bidding on the silent auction items prior to that night.
