The Southwest Omaha Rotary Night Club is excited to announce a change of venue for this year’s 8th Annual Fine Wine & Hors d’Oeuvres Tasting event which supports the Boys Town National Hotline. Thanks to your past participation, we have outgrown our previous venue! This year’s event will be at A View on State located at 13467 State Street in Omaha, NE on Thursday, October 20, 2016. In the past, there have been about 400 people in attendance and this year’s expected attendance is over 600!
We would like to invite you to support our cause once again, by sponsoring the event, donating items for the event and/or attending the event. The money we raise through sponsorships and donations will give opportunities to families and children in our community and our country.
Over the past seven years, the Southwest Omaha Rotary Night Club has hosted Fine Wine and Hors d’ Oeuvres Tastings to help support the Boys Town National Hotline®. With your past help, they have raised over $210,000.00! These donations have allowed the Hotline to:
~ Purchase water bottles printed with the Hotline phone number for several thousand local high school students.
~ Purchase Hotline posters for area high schools.
~ Purchase additional Hotline wallet cards and pencils for local middle school students.
~ Provide contributions to fund the costs of on-line chat services for teens.
This year our goal is to give the Hotline at least $65,000 to aid in the promotion of the “Your Life, Your Voice” campaign. Posters, wallet cards, magnets, etc. will be distributed locally and nationally to schools, beginning in the 14 cities where Boys Town has sites.
We cannot do this without your help! We would like to thank you in advance for your continued support of the Boys Town National Hotline.
Development Director, Boys Town National Hotline
