Tualatin Rotary auction May 29

The annual event raises money for scholarships and other local programs


The Tualatin Rotary Club is giving local residents a chance to give back and support the community through the Rotary’s annual dinner and auction at 6 p.m. May 29.

Everyone is invited to join the Rotary Club of Tualatin for a silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by a live auction and dinner at Tualatin Country Club, 9145 S.W. Tualatin Road.

The live auction will include trips, dinners, art and a number of other packages. The silent auction will include hundreds of other items.

“The main goal of the auction is to raise funds for Rotarian projects," said Rodney Malone, the auction committee chair, in a press release. “Our goals are always around children, hunger and education.”

Proceeds from the auction have a direct impact on the local community. The money helps fund the Tualatin School House Pantry, provides Tualatin High School students with scholarships and supports the Intercambio high school mentoring program that connects Hispanic youth with good role models. The money also allows the Rotary Club to support ongoing services such as the Tualatin Dental Van, which provides free dental care to community members each month.

“Without the auction, we would not be able to do this,” Malone said. At the auction, “people can expect an excellent evening with friends and local Tualatin citizens.”

What's more, all funds raised through the auction are also matched by Rotary International.

Tickets to the event are $75 per person and can be purchased online.
