Why is it important to support our Monte Carlo event?  
Where do your dollars go?
 
First, we discuss HOW you can support the event.
Then we discuss where, who, and how that support helps.
 
 
HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT MONTE CARLO?
1) Sponsor the event - When you sponsor, you receive recognition and exposure through several mediums for your business or organization. Depending on your level of sponsorship you may receive that exposure through:
  - An ad in the evening's program booklet.
  - Your logo on rotation on the big screen in the main dining area.
  - Your name on table signs.
  - Your name listed on signs around the event.
As a sponsor you may also receive additional benefits such as:
  - Free tickets to the event.
  - Reserved seating.
  - Express check-in.
 
2) You can donate an item for our Silent Auction:
Through this means of support, you help us raise money through silent auction bids made by our attendees. You receive exposure for your business or organization with several hundred event attendees who view the items offered for sale that evening.
 
3) Come to the event!
Ticket sales are an important part of the financial success of this event.  The more people who attend, the more money we raise. Ticket sales are also important as it allows more people to participate in and support the silent auction.   
So JOIN US and:
  -Enjoy the wide variety of food available. 
  -Enjoy the music. 
  -Enjoy the "gaming" with the $1000 in Rotary Bucks  you get with your ticket purchase. Additional Rotary Bucks can be purchased at the event to use at the gaming tables.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER SUPPORTING MONTE CARLO?
 
Now that you understand HOW you can help, here's WHY is it so important to support the Mechanicsburg North Rotary Club's Monte Carlo Night.

In a world where so many are in need, an individual's ability to make a real difference is limited by our resources of time and money.  When you support Rotary, either with your time or money, you exponentially multiply your capacity to help.  Through Rotary, local, regional, national and international needs of people are being met simultaneously.   Where else can you put your dollars and know that it going to help eliminate polio, help New Hope Ministries feed the hungry, provide Junior Achievement financial literacy classes, and purchase books for the Joseph T. Simpson Public Library? Funds raised also support the homeless at Bethesda Mission, and enable sponsorship of events like the Fishing Derby for kids, the Andy and Elmer Reading Program in local schools, dictionaries for school students, leadership training for emerging high school leaders, and scholarships for students  to help them make a better world for us all. You will never know the true impact of your financial support.  Part of it could go towards helping a local family in dire need or to help to dig a well in Africa where a small town does not have access to clean water.  It might help send medical professionals to places in the world that need medical, dental and eye care.
 
It is incredible to think how many lives can be touched by your financial support.  Our club has a long tradition of giving in our community and around the world.  That long tradition is is the reason we continually raise money to help those in need. Support Monte Carlo and help your community, locally and globally, through the work of the Rotary Club of Mechanicsburg North.
