Hoboken Charter fundraiser tonight - rain or shine

Hoboken Rotary announces:

Dear editor,

Regardless of the rain threat this evening, our fundraiser for the Hoboken Charter School is going to happen.  Tonight from 6pm-10pm at both the Turtle Club and 10th and Willow.  Our motto is Rotary is "Service Above Self".  We're asking all of the Hoboken community and the surrounding communities to adopt our motto just for tonight and come out to support the kids, teachers and the school, even if mother nature has a few tricks up her sleeve.

The West Five Supper Club has donated their courtesy shuttle for use tonight from 6pm-10:30pm.  The public can call 201-665-9667 between the hours of 6pm and 10:30pm tonight and be picked up by the shuttle, the shuttle will operate in Hoboken only.  We are asking residents that live in large residential buildings to come together in the van, rather than call on an as needed basis to help alleviate  the demand for the courtesy shuttle.

We have over 70 items for our silent auction / raffle and complimentary food has been donated for the night by Hoboken eateries Anthony David's, East LA, The Madison, Liberty Bar, The Tilted Kilt, Trinity, The Village Pourhouse, Ben and Jerry's, Carlo's Bakery, The Little Grocer and Biggie's Clam Bar.

Some of the auction items include 3 NY Giants Tickets vs Cleveland Brown in October, tickets are in section 111 in the player family seating area, Eli Manning signed Football, Eli Manning Signed Jersey, Victor Cruz Signed Jersey, NJ Devils signed Item, Signed guitars, Signed baseballs from NY Yankees and other teams, Lunch with Mayor Dawn Zimmer, Massages for 1 year and many more!!  Raffle prizes will be various git cards to local store and restaurants, artwork, Dunkin Donuts items, gift baskets and so much more.

Any donation at the door for entry at either venue and each person that donates $10 or more will receive a free drink ticket.  Cash, checks and credit cards accepted throughout the night.
