As the ticket pricing indicates, we would encourage you to invite a non-Rotarian to the Foundation Dinner  so that they may consider becoming a new member, as it will be a great way to introduce them to Rotary. 
Each Event Ticket will include one raffle ticket and the chance to win some excellent raffle prizes.  Additional tickets will be available for purchase for $5 each or 3 for $10.
