Swingin' Medallions to perform at beach-themed Rotary fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill is inviting the community to participate in "Goin' to the beach in Feburuary" fundraiser with The Swingin' Medallions performing a live concert. 

The Richmond Hill City Center will be transformed into a seaside playground with a boardwalk designed to recreate a realistic beach experience for the club's annual fundraiser.

The Rotary Club invites people to dress casually for the beach and arrive at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 8 to enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres, cash bar and silent auction before the Swingin' Medallions perform.

"We are grateful to all the local businesses which sponsor our annual fundraiser and donate to the silent auction. We hope that many Richmond Hill residents will join us in ‘goin' to the beach in February' and enter into the spirit of the occasion by supporting our boardwalk feature as local businesses will be donating a percentage of their proceeds to our fundraising. The boardwalk participants including Sew Much Baggage, Coastal Confections, the Ice Cream Stop and Jason Barker (photographer) will add a great deal of fun to the evening as well as helping us to raise much needed funds for charity," said event organizer Rich DeLong in a news release.

"We have targeted to raise close to $20,000 through sponsorship, ticket sales and our silent and live auctions," he said. "The money raised enables us to give back to our community throughout the year with initiatives like the Senior Citizens Programs, educational sponsorships such as the J.D. Gardner Scholarship, good causes like The Matthew Freeman Foundation and the Presidents Fund which help our local schools as well as remembering international Rotary initiatives such as Alzheimer's Research and Polio eradication," said in a relase by President of the Rotary Club of Richmond Hill Larry Baker.

Tickets are $60 per person, and include food, entertainment and dancing.
