"Hollywood Night" Updates


The 2015 Rotary fundraiser "Hollywood" Night is now less than three weeks away.  Here is an update on some of the details:


Brochure:  The Auction Committee for “Hollywood Night” is planning to meet at 3:00 PM on Monday, February 16th, at Northwest Bank on Delaware to begin putting the auction brochure together and packaging the items.   Anyone that is available and would like to help should stop by.  Your services would be appreciated.   The bank is closed on Monday for President’s Day but Carmen has made arrangements for us to be able to get in and work.

Auction Items:  Over 130 auction items have now been received.  This is still slightly less than last year but more items are expected to be received this week.   If you know you will be receiving an item but do not have it in hand yet, send Carmen Davis an email with a description of the item and its value so it can be included in the brochure.  The brochure needs to go to the printer on Friday, February 27th.

TicketsAll 300 tickets have been distributed but we suspect some have not as yet been sold.    Let Shar Dunlap know if you need more tickets.  We can print more.  If you are 100% sure you have tickets that will not be sold, turn them back into Shar Dunlap.  If tickets are not turned back in, we will assume they are sold, you will be billed for them, and we will order food based on the tickets outstanding. 

Catering Ankeny HyVee #2 (Prairie Trail) has been selected to be the caterer for the 2015 Ankeny Rotary fundraiser, "Hollywood Night.  The menu will include:  Entrees - Prime Rib and Seasoned Mesquite Chicken Breast;  Hors d'oeuvres - Tomato, Mozzarella, and Olive Skewers, Olive Salami and Smoked Cheese Skewers, Prosciutto crostini's, and Vegetable Crudite's;  Sides - 3 Cheese Risotto, Premier Vegetables, and Salad Wedge Kabob;  Beverages - Beer, Wine, Sparkling Wine, Soda, Fruit Punch, and Water;  Desserts:  Assorted to be sold at auction,
