MORGAN HILL ROTARY DAZZLE This year’s annual DAZZLE fundraiser dinner and party was a huge success.  While the final numbers are still being tabulated it is anticipated that this year’s event exceeded last year’s record $58,000 raised.  Guests at Clos la Chance winery arrived to a hosted reception in the grand salon while viewing the showcase raffle and auction items. Of the many auction items, DAZZLE Chairperson Rachel Hill created a unique Volkswagen bus bar complete with granite surface and beer tap.  The evening’s gourmet dinner was enjoyed while Master of Ceremonies Roger Malech entertained and Richie Chavarria from Garlic City Auctions did his magic with the bidders.  The Sipping for Diamonds drawing for the .5 carat diamond was held just prior to the main attraction.  The Band, NOTORIOUS, blew the roof off with their high energy show playing to a packed dance floor from 8 -10pm.  “I’ve never seen so many Rotarians still on the dance floor at the end of the night,” said Rachel. “Rotary has changed….come check us out.” 44 GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2018
