A Mid Summer Italian Festival Fundraiser

Register Now!

Please join the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor for a special evening featuring an informative talk on Zoom by wine experts Mike Roddy, founder of Paesano Restaurant & Wine bar, and Chaad Thomas of Eagle Eye Imports. A gourmet Italian wine and dinner menu is available for purchase for pick-up from Paesano, enhancing the entire experience. This event will have a special emcee, Steve Schram, Executive Director of Michigan Radio.

Replacing our annual Golf Outing event due to Covid-19, proceeds from this event will support our community programs, including those dedicated to “Helping Kids Succeed.” During the evening’s presentation on Zoom, a special Magnum of the superb Montefalco Sagrantino, Scacciodiavolo 2015 will be auctioned (opening bid of $300, $750 minimum reserve). So travel to Italy for one night from the comfort of your own home in Michigan and know your support will improve our community in these difficult times. Molte Grazie!!

Only 200 meals are available and they’re going fast! Register now to reserve your spot.
