Online ticket sales have closed! A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $45.  

We are back again to bring our unique adult Spelling Bee/Beer Tasting fundraiser to Film Row in Downtown Oklahoma City! Join us at The Paramount from 6:00 pm to midnight on Friday, February 27, 2015!

For the cost of your $40 ticket, you get food from Paramount, beer from local brewery Anthem, AND entrance into the Spelling Bee with a grand prize of $500! Don't worry, you don't HAVE to enter the Bee, you can just eat and drink and laugh at your friends trying to spell. We will have a great silent auction available for your bids on local art, crafts, gift baskets, and more! The Paramount will have a cash bar available to purchase other beverages if you need something other than beer.

Local comedian Spencer Hicks and Midtown Rotary's very own funny man Jacob Rowe will be emceeing the Spelling Bee portion of the evening! We'll even have some awesome entertainment from OKC Improv between rounds!

This year we are also introducing a designated driver ticket for our friends who won't drink and will help everyone get home safe. For $20, you get everything included in a regular ticket except the booze.

Doors open at 6:00 pm, spelling starts promptly at 7:00 pm!

Tickets will be $45/$25(DD) at the door, so get yours now! 

Must be 21 to enter.

All proceeds will go to help Midtown Rotary continue to serve the local and international community.

 

 
Robots are fun! With a grant from Rotary District 5750 and club funds, we were able to help Douglass Middle School's Botball team. The Botball team make and program robots to take to competions. We provided a new practice table and transportation to their competition! Check out these cool robots and their special "Thanks Rotary!" message.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
With the help of a District Grant from Rotary District 5750, we were able to purchase art supplies for students at Horace Mann Elementary in Oklahoma City. Here are some pictures of our club members delivering the supplies and great thank you notes the students made us with their new supplies!

On October 30, members of OKC Midtown Rotary delivered four trumpets, four clarinets, four flutes, and corresponding supplies to the music class at Capitol Hill High School! The instruments and supplies were made possible with a District Grant from District 5750 and funds from OKC Midtown Rotary . The students and their teacher were so excited and gave the Rotarians an impromptu concert with their new instruments!

Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet at a wine bar after work, share a social outing, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president, says the club has been...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
