Rotary Barbecue tickets available now

By From page A2 | May 16, 2014

Tickets are on sale now — and available online for the first time — for the 37th annual Rotary Barbecue, which runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 17, in Central Park, Fourth and C streets. The event is organized by and benefits all three Davis Rotary clubs — Sunrise, Noon and Sunset.

Significant volunteer help is provided by members of the Campus Rotaract Club at UC Davis.

Guests will enjoy a tasty meal of barbecued turkey and tri-tip, vegetarian beans, salad, rolls and ice cream. Beer, wine, soda and water will be available for an additional charge.

Also planned are live music, a children’s carnival and a silent auction. Winning tickets in the charitable raffle, which benefits dozens of youth groups in Davis, also will be drawn. The raffle typically raises $70,000 to $80,000 annually for local groups.

Back by popular demand is a pie-baking contest, open to bakers of all ages. Any type of pie is welcome; entries will be evaluated on appearance, crust and taste. The winner will receive a $50 gift card to Our House restaurant.

Two pies — one for judging and the other for slicing and selling — should be delivered by 4:30 p.m. to a marked tent in Central Park. All proceeds will benefit Rotary’s charitable projects.

Those who plan to enter are asked to contact Charlie Swanson at [email protected]

Barbecue tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children ages 5-12; kids under 5 are free. Tickets are available from any Rotarian, at the door or online at www.RotaryBBQ2014.eventbrite.com.
