We are inviting all of you to join us for a memorable and beautiful Spring day in the world famous Napa Valley as we gather for fellowship and to raise funds for two worthwhile causes and other projects supported by your own clubs. Come as individuals, with your family and friends or form a team and compete for the rotary club cycling cup (see details below).
We have committed to assist in funding this project, which will develop a rehabilitation center and other recreational materials and activities for veterans returning from the Middle east conflicts, who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder, visual impairments, and other related maladies.
This magical place, situated in the western hills of Napa Valley, is one of our only two such camps within the western United States and has hosted blind and visually impaired children and adults for over 50 years. Our efforts will guarantee that anyone who wishes to attend this camp will always be able to do so- including our disabled veterans.
Put together "your own team" of cyclists, raise pledges, and compete in The Annual Rotary Club Cycling Challenge. Your team can consist of Rotarians, family, and friends; and each member can ride any of the three routes-50, 25, or 15 miles. The challenge is to compete in raising pledges. The team that raises the most money in pledges will be recognized at the post ride festival, presented with a perpetual award and given a case of champagne to enjoy at the event. A minimum of 5 riders, each who have raised $100 or more in pledges is required to enter as a team.
As we are aware that each club has its own projects to fund that may be as equally worthwhile-we will donate 50% of all of your own pledge monies back to your own club to support your own projects.
For any auction items that your club can contribute to our event's silent auction, we will also donate back to your club 50% of the final bid on these items back to your club for your own projects.
How about that for rotary fellowship? we will put on the event, do all of the work, front the costs and share with you equally on the monies you raise. A great way to help a multitude of rotarian causes and projects.
