Rotary Club Knocks It Out Of The Park With Chocolate Extravaganza

E-mail Print PDF

Attending the Rotary's Extravaganza at the Brookline Holiday Inn - Fred Free, Tracy Clark, Elias Audy and Chobee HoyLed by President Kenny Jaffe, event co-chairs Justin Berke and Laura Days as well as dozens of hard-working Rotarians, this weekend the Brookline Rotary put on a superior event that benefited all.

They clearly understand four key steps to knocking it out of the park for a charity event:

First Base: Benefit the Organization - Joining the Rotary never looked so good.

Second Base: Benefit Participating Vendors - Businesses are asked all the time to donate their time and resources to charity events. Over 500 people attended this sold-out event, providing payback for local companies looking to do good.

Third Base: Benefit Attendees - Although the event sold out before Sunday, it was not too crowded for those in attendance to listen to the great musical performances from the likes of the Brookline Symphony Orchestra and kibitz with neighbors. Most of all, the vendor lines were not too long, allowing everyone to get their chocolate fix in.

Home Base: Benefit the Charity - At the time of the event, the calculators were still adding up the totals, but it looks like the Brookline Emergency Food Pantry benefited by close to thirty thousand dollars. That means those in our community who so desperately need our support got a good dose of Brookline’s heart on Sunday.

The Brookline Rotary with its “Have a Heart Chocolate Extravaganza” hit one over the Green Monster, the Green Monster seats, Lansdowne Street, that parking lot, over the Mass Pike, Kenmore Square where I used to sneak into the Rat during my glory days, over BU’s Bay State Road and into the Charles River. It was a tape measure job.
