2018 Cornelius Harnett Gala

Gala 015Our main fundraising event is the annual Cornelius Harnett Charity Gala held in the spring. The Gala, recognized as the foremost social evening in the area, has continued to grow year by year, and is a significant source of funds for the Club’s many projects.

Join us to help celebrate Judge Edward McCormick’s 50 years with Rotary and his years of service to his community. Show your support for the many outstanding service projects of the Rotary Club of Lillington by becoming a sponsor for this event. Sponsors will receive first priority on the limited number of tickets available for the Gala. Many have called the previous Cornelius Harnett Galas “the premier social events in Harnett County.”  This year’s event, on April 21, 2018 at the Harnett County Government Complex, will be from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00pm, and will feature live music by Leon Jordan’s Continentals – the most well regarded dance band in central North Carolina. Our caterer will provide extravagant hors d’oeuvres throughout the evening, and there will be door prizes for lucky ticket holders.

Our sponsors’ generosity in past years has enabled the Rotary Club of Lillington to provide (1) scholarships to local college-bound seniors, (2) a personal dictionary for every third grader in two local schools, (3) funding for the Buddy Backpack program in Harnett County, (4) a stipend for the Harnett County Teacher of the Year (5) support for world-wide Polio eradication, as well as many other community and humanitarian projects.

Join us for this community celebration, and help us support our communities, both local and around the world, by completing the enclosed sponsorship application. On the form, you may elect to purchase tickets, receive free tickets with your sponsorship, purchase extra tickets, or become a sponsor without tickets.
