There’s a new club in town! The CT Shoreline Rotaract Club is a Rotary-sponsored, volunteer-run club of young professionals between the ages of 18-30 who believe in providing service to others both in their local communities and around the world.
Just in time for the holidays, the local club will be hosting their first fundraising event on Thursday, December 12th at 7pm, “A Night at the Cabaret”. The event will feature a live theatrical performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat produced and hosted at the Downtown Cabaret Theatre (263 Golden Hill Street, Bridgeport, CT). In the true spirit of the cabaret, guests are welcomed to BYOB and picnic.
“Theatre has a way of bringing people together,” says Ashley Volkens, Director of Fundraising of the CT Shoreline Rotaract Club. “We look forward to bringing people together while raising funds and club awareness to local businesses, professionals, and community leaders.”
Tickets are currently on sale to the general public for $35 and can be purchased online by visiting the CT Shoreline Rotaract Clubs Facebook event or visiting tickets.mycabaret.org/Joseph-RotaractClub. Proceeds from the evening will go towards the club’s Interact Scholarship fund and Farm Aid - a nonprofit focused on supporting local farmers.
“CT Shoreline Rotaract has brought together an incredible group of people who are focused on giving back to the community.” says Morgan Kuehnle, President of the CT Shoreline Rotaract Club. “Starting this club has been one of the most humbling experiences and we are excited for the club to continue to grow and make a difference.”
