The Holiday Party Committee is hard at work planning a fantastic party with a million dollar view. We can keep the costs down for this event with the help of generous Rotarians who donate wine and/or gift cards or who sponsor tables and/or ads for the printed program.  
Gift Cards: A popular tradition at our annual party is to raffle $100 gift cards to popular department stores. This raffle is open to all of our guests. For your convenience, you can make a financial contribution, and a gift card will be purchased for which you will be acknowledged as the donor. For more information, please contact Stacey Poole
Wine Donation: New this year is a Wine Toss. During the reception from 11 AM to 12 noon, there will be an opportunity to win a bottle or magnum of wine by aiming at your wine of choice. A complimentary toss will be available for all attendees. This is another way that we are making the party exciting for ALL, and we encourage members to donate wine for this game. You may bring the wine to either the December 3 or December 10 Rotary Luncheon and deliver to either Christopher Wiseman or Stephanie Schmautz who will make sure it gets to the holiday party in time for the toss. For more information, please contact Christopher Wiseman
Toy Drive:  The Firemen’s Toy Drive, coordinated by Lisa Stark, is a simple way to give a gift to a needy San Francisco child or teen. Bring your unwrapped toy, and drop it in the barrel as you enter the party on December 17. Suggested value of the toy is $25.
Sponsorships: A printed holiday party program will be distributed to all guests. You may sponsor an ad to be printed in the program, and we offer many choices: full size, half side, a third page, or a business card ad. Consider sponsoring a table ($700 for 10 seats), and thank you in advance to those members who have already done so. Please see here to register for a sponsorship.
We hope that you and your guests will join us at the 2019 Holiday Party. December 4 is the last day to purchase an ad or a table and to choose among three choices of entrée for the luncheon at $80 per person. Starting December 5, 2019, you may still donate a toy, a gift card, and wine, but sponsoring either an ad or table will expire. In addition, you will be limited to just chicken as your entrée, and the meal price will increase to $111 per person.
