Description

Join us Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 6:00 p.m to 10:00 p.m. at the Cielo Ballroom, for our biggest fundraiser of the year — the 31st Annual Benefit Auction.

This year we're incredibly excited to have a paddle raise that will immediately benefit The Uganda Farmers Inc. — a non-profit water project that digs wells for the drough ridden Bujanjara Village, in Uganda, West Africa. Currently children will walk miles to retrieve water from dirty streams. These wells provide a source of clean and safe drinking water for not only the children, but for the entire village.

Additionally, proceeds from this auction go directly back into the local West Haven community through numerous service projects the club oversees:
  • Dictionaries for every third grader in West Haven
  • High School Students of the Month
  • Blind Veterans Luncheon
  • United Nations Day
  • Career Shadowing Day
  • Rotary Youth Leadership Conference
  • Amber Alert Project
  • ‘Operation Warm’ coat donations to West Haven grammar schools
  • Bailey Middle School International Project
  • Scholar-Athlete Luncheon
  • Annual Scholarship Luncheon
  • Forest School Playground
  • Military Museum Media Center
  • West Haven Adult Ed Scholarship
  • Rotaract (UNH) and Interact (Notre Dame & West Haven ) High School Clubs
This is our Club’s major fundraiser and we count on fellow Rotarians, friends and members of the greater West Haven community to participate in this fun and festive event. Tickets are $55.00 per person and include dinner and open bar. Please contact one of the following members of our auction committee: Abby Goldblatt - abby.goldblatt@yale.edu Roland Depew - rcdepew@comcast.net

Who is the organizer of the auction?
The Annual Benefit Auction is organized every year by the West Haven Rotary Club which has been serving the local community since 1931. Each year, club members volunteer their time to create a special night for the community with the intent to raise money to support our service projects.

These projects include: Scholarships for West Haven Students, winter coats for children in need, West Haven student of the month awards, Dictionaries delivered to every 3rd grader in West Haven, Amber Alert services, and a blind veterans luncheon to name a few.
