District 6440 Rotary Road Trip to Miller Park Sept. 3rd
Game On Rotarians!!!  It's time for a Road Trip!!
Join us on Labor Day, September 3rd for the 2018 District 6440 Rotary Road Trip to Miller Park, and honor our patient Veteran friends from Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center and other regional VA Medical Centers.  The game features the Chicago Cubs at the Milwaukee Brewers!  We step off our event with a classic Wisconsin tailgate party hosted by Saz's Catering - including all the necessary fixins and live entertainment with Mellencougar!  Purchasing your tickets before March 31st will save you a large chunk of cash!   We encourage your club or group to consider bringing a bus, or even combine with other groups if practical.   Bus parking is available.
We are asking for your consideration as a Sponsor Club for this event.  As a Sponsor you are committing to a minimum of 10 event admissions - four (4) to be donated to directly to Veteran patients from The Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Centerand other regional VA medical centers.  Please respond to if you have any questions regarding sponsorship.
Proceeds from our event will benefit the One World Medical Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization that provides support for research and treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and Moral Injury among our Military Veteran community.
Ticket sales will end on July 31st or when we sell out of our ticket block - whichever comes first!  THIS GAME WILL SELL OUT!   (If you already have game tickets - you can certainly join us for the Rotary Tailgate Part)
As a note, I am also available to speak to your Club as the Veteran Affairs Liaison for District 6440.  Please visit the District 6440 Speakers Bureau to enlist some of the great opportunities for your Club to support our military servants and their families, as well as many other fantastic speakers!
Yours in Rotary Service,
