On Saturday, February 8, 2020, The Columbia Town Center Rotary Club will host the "Valentine’s Gala" to raise funds for community service projects and charities that help children and families in need.  A fun evening of dancing and dining, the "Valentine’s Gala" will be held from 7:00PM until 11:00PM at the Turf Valley Resort in Ellicott City, MD.  Live music will be provided by The NightLife Band and the cost per ticket is $125. 

Will you open your heart to help others this Valentine’s Day?  We are currently seeking sponsors for this event.  This is a great way to contribute to your local community and the world at large. Unlike most charities that focus on a single cause or service, our charitable foundation supports a portfolio of community service projects and charities that support children and families in need, education and mentoring, and services to citizens in crisis, primarily in Howard County (see below).  Last year, this event raised $19,000; sponsorships contributed nearly 65% of the money raised. With your sponsorship, you can help us do more. 

We have a variety of sponsorship packages, all of which include some event tickets and differing levels of visibility associated with the event.  Consider using this as a client or employee appreciation event. Please see the Sponsorship Package attachment to find the one that is the right fit for your business or organization.  Don’t see one that fits your needs? We are happy to discuss a custom package for you. Please contact Sharon Waligora at 443 416-7068 or ctcrotary@gmail.com to reserve your spot as a Valentine’s Gala sponsor.  

Thank you in advance for your support in this endeavor.  The Columbia Town Center Rotary Club Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization (EIN 20-2858354).
