Rotary Uncorked 2016 'Boots and Bling' will be held Saturday October 8th at the City of Wasilla’s Menard Sports Center, from 6-9 P.M

The Wasilla and Palmer Rotary Clubs are proud to present their annual gala event, “Rotary Uncorked”. This year’s theme is titled ‘Boots and Bling’, and it features a festive evening of both country and western fun and frivolity for the cowboy and cowgirl in each of us.

This year’s event will feature a menu of eight tapas pairings of exquisite western culinary cuisine paired with specialty wines and craft beer that are sure to create a ‘happy dance’ in one’s palate.  

Tickets are on sale now for $65. Wine and beer raffle tickets for a chance to win 100 bottles of beer or 100 bottles of wine are available for $10.  Log on to http://rotaryuncorked.akmobi.org/, or contact Joni at (907) 354.3382 to purchase tickets.  You can also purchase your ‘Boots and Bling’ tix at Town Square Art Gallery in the Carrs Mall Wasilla, Life Family Chiropractic in Wasilla, and Travel Services in Palmer. 

Please note that this event has sold out for the last several years. So purchase your tickets today! For those who wait to purchase their tickets until the evening of the event, the ticket price at the door will be $75, and there is no guarantee that tickets will be available. 

‘Boots and Bling’ will be held Saturday October 8th at the City of Wasilla’s Menard Sports Center, from 6-9 P.M. There are some very special additions to this year’s event, including country and western band, Against the Grain, and a special appearance from Judge Roy Bean! He’s not really a judge, and his name isn’t Roy, but justice will be served at the event, and there will be a ‘Hoosegow’, which is western slang for jail. Let your imagination soar!

Each year, Rotary Uncorked raises funds for Rotary community service projects, scholarships and community non-profit organizations. This year’s selected recipients are MyHouse, providing housing and workforce development solutions for homeless youth in the Mat-Su, and Sertoma, committed to providing hearing aid services to Mat-Su residents of all ages.  

Get your ‘gitty-up’ on, and get gussied up for a great evening of fun and fellowship for a great cause! We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Rotary Uncorked gala event, ‘Boots and Bling’! 

We can't do it without you!
