Autumn Indulgence raises $160,000 for local projects!
Author: Dan Rolph
GRAND BEND – It was a groovy night as the Grand Bend Rotary Club held the 23rd annual Autumn Indulgence fundraiser at the Huron Country Playhouse. Guests at the Sept. 23 fundraiser were invited to dress in psychedelic costumes to match the night’s ‘Swinging 60s’ theme, hearkening back to some of the decade’s most recognizable fashion trends and iconic stars. By the end of the evening, about $130,000 had been raised to support Rotary Club projects, Rotarian Bruce Shaw said, and an additional $30,000 had been raised in support of a proposed new community centre for Grand Bend. Autumn Indulgence guests were welcomed to the Huron Country Playhouse by a display of classic vehicles. This year’s fundraiser included a dinner, live entertainment, and silent and live auctions.
One of the many projects the Grand Bend Rotary Club supports through the fundraiser is the Warner Wildlife and Nature Preserve, a 24-hectare property on Highway 21 that was donated to the Huron Tract Land Trust Conservancy last year to establish a local refuge for wildlife and nature which could be used for nature education. The fundraiser also raised money in support of a new community centre in Grand Bend. The project is currently in the early planning stages as the municipality of Lambton Shores prepares for a feasibility study and public consultation, which is slated to be completed by mid-2024.
Other projects that have been supported by the Grand Bend Rotary Club have included the Grand Bend and Area Community Health Centre, enhancements to Grand Bend’s main beach and new seating at the Huron Country Playhouse. #aiswinging60s #grandbendrotary Autumnindulgence.com
