The Mocksville Rotary Club held its annual Rotary Raffle and dinner at Bermuda Run Country Club on Oct. 22.

Brent Campbell kept the more than 120 guests entertained as the master of ceremonies. Kyle Swicegood kept momentum going during the auction.

Dr. Francis Slate was recognized for his years of service to the community and for exemplifying the 4-Way Test and Rotary objectives.

Rotary Interact Club, which began this year at the Early College, embraced being an extension of the Mocksville Rotary Club by helping to sell raffle tickets during the evening. Visit the Mocksville Rotary’s FaceBook page to see the big winners of the raffle.

This fundraising event would not be possible without all of the volunteers from the raffle committee and chair, Barbara Owens.  Rotary Club thanks all of the community members who attended.

“We appreciate many business leaders that support our club’s initiatives throughout the year,” she said.

If interested in attending a meeting, join us Tuesdays at noon at the EnergyUnited Building on Salisbury Street in Mocksville.
