SAVE THE DATE! BE A SPONSOR!
Join us to help fight hunger in NYC at a fundraiser social at Farm Candy, a lifestyle store in the heart of South Street Seaport. We will have a wine tasting courtesy of our wine sponsor Voga Italia and our host Farm Candy. There will be light appetizers served.
There will be a 50/50 raffle, and a raffle for prizes (gift baskets and more) donated by our sponsors (confirmed sponsors: Voga Italia, Rotary Club of Ocho Rios East Jamaica, many more in-kind sponsors below) and our host Farm Candy.
We look forward to seeing you!
Registration is free and strongly recommended. Registered guests will receive 10% discount on Farm Candy products that evening. Farm Candy is committed to donating those 10% towards the cause.
The proceeds (donations, raffle sales) will benefit the Bowery Mission (one of our club's service projects) to replace a broken food van. The new van is needed to transport donated goods and food to the Bowery Mission in Manhattan from the warehouses in Westchester County and elsewhere. 100% of your donations go towards this cause.
The new van is a Ford Transit 250, which costs $20k used. The Rotary Club of Wall Street, together with the Rotary Club of Metro New York City, is committed to contributing $6000.
You will also be able to make donations on site by using cash, credit card (most major credit cards accepted), or a check made out to the Rotary Club of Wall Street Foundation (a 501c3 not-for-profit organization). Donations made via credit card will receive a tax receipt via email. Your donations are 100% tax-deductible.
Corporate sponsorships are available, see tickets or contact us via email for in-kind donations. If you would like to discuss sponsorship options, please do not hesitate to contact us at president (at) wallstreetrotary.org.
