2019 Rotary Holiday Classic
Volunteer Information and Sign-up

 

This is the annual 3-club fundraiser for Rochester Rotary Risers, Greater Rochester Rotary and The Rotary Club of Rochester. Thirty-two Minnesota varsity basketball teams are hosted and play two games over two days at Mayo Civic Center. All proceeds from the event are distributed as grants to local nonprofits working with youth for education.

More than 100 volunteers are needed over the two days to host our participants and fans. Rotarians, register here to volunteer. 

30% of the net proceeds from this year's Classic will be distributed to the three Rotary clubs of Rochester for Rotary youth and education programs, and each club will have the opportunity to receive an equal share of those proceeds based on their (proportionate) volunteerism at the event. If a clubs staffs all required shifts to meet its volunteer requirement, 100% of their share will be paid out. Signups will be designated by clubs only until December 13. If a club does not meet the requirement, they will receive proceeds based on the percentage of actual shifts worked. Remaining dollars will be distributed to the other clubs based on their percentage of volunteerism.
