The Rotary Club of Millcreek's 2018 Wine into Water fundraiser for water projects in an impoverished international community - this year in Fiji - was truly a team effort - as it always is. We should all be very proud of how successful and beautiful the event was.
We also need to thank the Youthlinc volunteers who are truly indispensable to this event. They handle check-in, greeting, cleaning up during the event, working with the caterer, working the water project donation appeal (we raised $4500!), and much of the clean-up afterward.
Tracy Aviary is always great to work with. Please frequent the Aviary, and be sure to say thanks to the staff!
Utah Food Services made this event much more doable in many ways. While we are so grateful to the members who contributed delicious appetizers, having a competent caterer willing to help us at a reduced cost lightens the load on everyone.
If you need a caterer, we would highly recommend. They always do a fantastic job.
While we need a reconciliation from our treasurer, an informed estimate of the gross (based on entrance, water project appeal, and a glance at the opportunity drawing records) would be > $17,000 maybe even > $18,000. Even with that conservative estimate, the event was the best fundraiser ever!
Here are some photos of the evening. Thanks again, everyone who helped, and everyone who attended.
