Friends of Millbrae Rotary,

Members of the Rotary Club of Millbrae would be honored for you to join our 14th Annual Millbrae Community Lunar New Year Virtual Banquet. Normally, we would be looking forward to seeing over 300 of you during our festive ten course Chinese banquet. This year, due to the pandemic, we have partnered with Tai Wu Restaurant in Millbrae to prepare an outstanding take-out meal of Chinese cuisine for you to enjoy while attending our virtual New Year event.

Please join with us to celebrate the Chinese Year 4719, the Year of the Ox.

Take-out meals will be ordered through our Event Registration Website and picked up the night of the event. As you eat your meal at home, we invite you to join us online via Zoom for our virtual New Year event, featuring Chinese Lion dancers, an interview with the chef, and a ceremonial toast from our Imperial Court. We will also be hosting an online silent auction during the two weeks prior to the event.

Tickets will be available @ $50 each. We understand that many of our guests travel for this event and that it may be infeasible to do so for this year's take-out-style banquet. If you still wish to participate from afar, there will be an option on our registration page for you to sign up for the Zoom session without a meal for $20 per person or to make a voluntary donation supporting the Rotary Club of Millbrae. All proceeds will go towards our Club's programs benefiting Millbrae's public schools and youth programs.

We will follow up with more specific details when our registration page goes live. For further information, please e-mail Philip Petro at: philip.petro33@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support! Please mark Friday, February 26 on your calendar now. We look forward to seeing you online!

Sincerely,

Joe Teresi

President '20-'21

Rotary Club of Millbrae

THANK YOU so much to everyone who was able to donate so far.

There is still time to donate by year end (to take advantage of 2020 corporate matching, if applicable, and the potential tax-deduction on donations made).

Our 2020-2021 goal is $650,000. To date we have received $204,000 (31% of our Annual Fund Goal)

Funds raised this year go towards School Year 2021-2022. Unfortunately, we need to continue to push hard so that the MEF dollars can continue funding programs we have sustained for the last few years: Social Emotional Learning, Technology, our Elementary Music Program, and Legarza (or its equivalent to get kids moving and working together).

We have a long way to go. Our suggested donation amount is $500/individual and $800/family, however, ANY amount is greatly appreciated.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do not forget to submit donations for corporate matching AND check in with you tax advisor on the tax-deductibility of your donation.
