Boston Rotaract is excited to announce the results of our Karaoke 4 Charity fundraiser!
The event, held on September 30th at Hong Kong in Faneuil Hall, was a huge success - we raised over $1,300 for Found in Translation, which teaches low-income multilingual women to become medical interpreters.
A ticket was required to enter our reserved section at the venue & appetizers were included in the ticket price. Boston Rotaract had printed materials at the event promoting our club and information about meetings so prospective members could get a quick understanding of what our club is about. We collected email addresses as well, so we can thank attendees for joining us at the event and invite them to future meetings.
To raise money we:
  • Charged $10 admission
  • Held a 50/50 raffle, with half the money collected going toward Found in Translation
  • Served specialty drinks with a percentage going toward Found in Translation
  • Encouraged donations
In attendance were approximately 20 Rotaract members from our club, 10 Rotarians from other clubs, and 15 non-members.
