Lower Mainland Rotary Foundation Dinner – "A Celebration of Rotary"
November 18, 2023, 6:00 PM
Rotary members from across District 5040 will gather at the Continental (Chinese) Seafood Restaurant, 11700 Cambie Rd., Richmond, BC to celebrate our Rotary Foundation and to say thank you to the many Rotary members for their generous support of The Rotary Foundation. We also celebrate the numerous service projects across District 5040 and globally that change lives.
Tickets $100 – table of 10 $1000
For just US$500 -- rather than the usual US$1,000 -- you can receive a Paul Harris Fellow (PHF). Just make the donation on "My Rotary" on the Rotary.org website. District 5040 will match your donation with 500 PHF points. Forms for the matching points will be available at the Foundation Dinner. Every PHF donation brings us that much closer to our Foundation goal.
