Join us at 5:30 p.m. on Friday October 13 at the Anacortes Airport for Anacortes Rotary’s fall fundraiser – Tailgate! Honoring Anacortes Veterans. To purchase tickets, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
Anacortes Rotary has designated the Veterans’ Service Office of the American Legion Causland Post as the primary beneficiary of this year’s fall Tailgate fundraiser. As you may know, over the years the Anacortes Rotary has contributed to and continues to support many local organizations and groups through our fundraising events. A partial list includes Anacortes Family Center, Anacortes Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army, Friends of Anacortes Library, Anacortes Senior Activity Foundation, Friends of Fidalgo Pool and Fitness, American Legion, Gentry House and Anacortes High School Robotics.
Right now, club members are busy preparing for our fall fundraiser, our biggest benefit event of the year. Club support will go the American Legion along with other community programs. More than 2,000 veterans, plus their dependents and survivors, depend on the Legion Service Office for assistance. Growing needs necessitated the addition of 2 new service officers this year for a total of 3 volunteers providing aid to aging and disabled veterans. Here are snapshots of the needs of veterans in our community:
• Medication management
• Wound Care
• Mobility devices, training on use and maintenance
• Hospice care equipment and supplies
The club provided an initial grant to the Legion Service Office last year and the current goal is continued funding for the Causland Post’s ongoing efforts to assist veterans in need. You can make a difference in the lives of those who were willing to make the sacrifice for our country.
Barton Waring has generously donated the use of his hangar at the Anacortes Airport for the festivities. The $85 ticket price includes entrance to the event, dinner and live auction. Tables of ten are available for $850.
