We are excited to invite you to our largest fundraiser of the year. This is a great opportunity for a night out while getting to know other rowing parents and coaches. Get ready to bid on many great silent and live auction items. The theme this year is the Olympics, spring or winter! Your choice, costumes are optional, but there will be a contest! Dressy casual attire if you arrive as an Olympic spectotor
Individual tickets are $50 each, and includes one drink, hors d'oeuvres, music and lots of fun. A cash bar will be available. Please consider being sponsor, various levels are list on the registration page or if unable to attend make a direct donation. You can use your child’s account to register, as it will link your information or create a new account for non-rower families (it is best to purchase their ticket for them so that they do not need to set up an account). Tickets will be sold through the website www.planthighrowing.com and guests will not need a paper ticket to get in.
This is our largest fundraiser of the year and proceeds from this event go directly to the benefit of your rower. If you have not done so already, use this opportunity to meet your fundraising obligation of $400 per family per year. There are other opportunities in the year to meet this obligation but this is our biggest time! We can’t do it without you!
