The SpeakEasy Event Night Agenda
There are loads of ways we are going to make this event different, fun, and yes…challenging!

  • Loads of Secret Surprises throughout the night

Where the money goes…
All proceeds go toward the work that Southtowne Rotary and the Southtowne Rotary Foundation do here and abroad.  Be part of the solution…while having a ton of Fun!

Southtowne Rotary is one of the most active Rotary Clubs in our District, and the funds raised for this event go toward our expansive work both here and internationally.  Focusing on helping kids in need, our efforts reach local and international youth, with unconditional gifts of peace, hope and love.

Proceeds benefit these local and far-reaching projects in which our Rotary club is involved (and many others):

  • College scholarships for promising students who likely would not have the opportunity to attend college w/o the scholarship- This effort will be the focus of our new “Bruce Shaw Scholarship Fund for Homeless Youth” in honor of Bruce Shaw, a legendary Rotarian in our club and beyond.
  • School Books and Supplies for the Village School in Buyijja, Uganda
  • Food boxes for families in need, in connection with Food for Lane County
  • Educational materials for Head Start
  • Project Amigo, helping to support education for students in Mexico
  • Stove Team International, providing healthy and efficient wood cook stoves
  • San Miguel de Allende School for the Deaf
  • Countless other Local Projects that deal with homelessness, hunger and education.
And Did We Mention the Food?

This year, you will have the choice of FOUR different menu options,
each bundled together with an entry ticket. Food, Drink and fun…with loads of options to participate!
