**COVID-19 UPDATE: 2020 Golf and Tenis Outing CANCELLED**
After thoughtful and comprehensive deliberation, we are compelled to cancel 2020’s RCAA GTO event, which had been scheduled for Sept. 8, 2020 at Fox Hills Golf and Banquet Center. We wanted to inform you of this, as soon as was practicable, for your planning purposes. We have rescheduled the event to next year on Sept. 13, 2021 (2nd Monday in Sept.) at Fox Hills Golf and Banquet Center.
As we studied the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on large social events, it became clear to us that, though we may have been able to improvise the actual golf tournament while preserving some degree of social distancing, it would be impossible to assure the safety of some 200-300 guests afterward at our very popular Reception and Banquet, where the purpose of our convivial joining together is just the opposite of social distancing! We are also very sensitive to the financial impact of the pandemic, and realize that this is not the most opportune time to be soliciting our loyal supporters for financial support, given that they or their companies are focused on their own survival, or are supporting other needs such as COVID “front line” workers in the community.
We are disappointed to have to do this, especially since we were very excited about staging the event at our new venue, Fox Hills this year, but hope you will understand and will use this notification as a “save the date” for next year’s RCAA GTO on Sept. 13, 2021 at Fox Hills. Until then, we wish you safety and health and a large dose of prosperity as we “open up” this year.
Please consider joining us at “A Mid-August Italian Festival Fundraiser for the Rotary Club of An Arbor” instead, which will take place on August 17th, 2020.
The purpose of our Annual Golf and Tennis Outing is threefold.
- Largest annual fundraiser.
- Social event that strengthens fellowship within our club.
- Promote awareness of Rotary in our community and attract new members.
The Golf and Tennis outing includes: lunch, golf, tennis, reception / cocktail hour, auction, dinner and speaker(s). Sponsorships, individual participants and the auction are essential parts of the outing’s success. It’s all about “Helping Kids Succeed”
2019’s event took place on Monday, September 9, 2019 at the Travis Pointe Country Club.
Thanks to all who helped make the 17th Annual Golf and Tennis Outing a smashing success! Our net revenue exceeded our expectations by more than $15,000. This would not have been possible without the support of our corporate sponsors, member volunteers, our robust auction committee, donors, and supporters. A good time was had by all. Good weather, good friends, and a good cause. We look forward with great anticipation for the 18th Annual Golf and Tennis Outing for the RCAA being an even greater success. We are currently designing and producing our brochure form the 2020 GTO to take place at Fox Hills Country Club. If you have interest in being a sponsor, donor, or volunteer, please contact Greg Stejskal or Charlie Koopmann.
