REVERSE RAFFLE & SILENT AUCTION

The Rotary Club of West Springfield's Reverse Raffle is held every year in the springtime at the Springfield Golf and Country Club on Old Keene Mill Road.  Normally we have approximately 325 people attending the dinner, dance, silent auction and Reverse Raffle with a grand prize of $10,000.  The event raises funds to support our numerous service projects, such as awarding scholarships to local students, teacher awards, firefighter and police awards, dental and medical clinics for needy people and blood drives. Internationally, we support a project to assist with Education in Sierra Leone, and, of course, we also support Rotary International in its worldwide program to eradicate polio.

BRATS BOOTH AT THE ANNUAL BURKE CENTRE FESTIVAL 

Our Club has a booth in the food vendor area on both Saturday and Sunday serving freshly cooked brats, hamburgers, fries and soft drinks.  All proceeds go toward supporting our community projects.

 

TASTE OF GREATER SPRINGFIELD - TOGSTM

Our Club launched a new event called the Taste of Greater Springfield (TOGS) in 2013. More than 15 local restaurants brought their best dishes (each restaurant donated enough to serve 500 people), and participants were able to sample them for one low admittance price.  300 people attended this fun event, which raised money for the projects of our Rotary Club, such as scholarships for WSHS students who otherwise could not attend college, Kristi's Christmas, and education in Sierra Leone, while promoting the restaurants (and beer and wine vendors) that supported us.  Because of the success of this event, our second annual event took place at the new Embassy Suites Hotel in Springfield on November 9th, 2014.  We have added more restaurants to the list of participants to join the more than 80% who are returning from last year and we anticipate many more attendees than last year.
