The Rotary Club of Cambria will host its annual VIVA fundraiser from 5:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Veterans Memorial Building in Cambria.
The event raises the majority of funds used by Rotary to benefit local and international projects.
Past community projects have included the Peace Garden at the Vets Hall, the Town Clock in the East Village, the Rotary bandstand at Shamel Park and the Main Street bus stop enclosure.
This year’s VIVA will feature a Grand Raffle. A $50 ticket purchases an opportunity to win a trip for two worth between $3,500 and $7,600. The winner will be able to choose one among the following trips: Charleston Luxury Getaway; Classic Wrigley Field Experience; Costa Rica Getaway; Le Cordon Bleu, Ottawa, Canada; Exotic Supercar Driving Experience; and Royal Caribbean Cruises.
Each trip includes airfare for two and accommodations, with some specialized tours or events.
A maximum of 500 tickets will be sold, and the winner need not be present to win.
Tickets are available from any Cambria Rotary Club member, at the Cambria Chamber of Commerce or by visiting the Cambria Rotary website, www.vivarotary.org. Tickets will also be sold at the VIVA fundraiser.
