VISALIA – Showcase will raise funds through the dinner-dance, a silent auction and door prizes, with all proceeds going to benefit community causes and organizations ranging from The Rotary Respite House and high school scholarships, to clean drinking water, the eradication of polio, the Ruth Wood Hospice House and more.

“Rotary’s international mission is to work together to find solutions to community problems, provide humanitarian aid and promote goodwill and peace,” explained Rotary Club of Visalia president Jon Pree. “With this fundraiser, people who are not Rotarians can help us build a stronger community while enjoying a great evening of music, comedy and dance.”

Entertainer Tim Buie has been performing around the world for over 30 years. He plays and sings jazz, rock, classical, country, oldies, blue grass and more, and frequently supports fundraisers for causes such as tsunami relief, the Blind Children’s Fund and the American Alzheimers Foundation.

Showcase 2017 begins at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $60 per person. To purchase online, visit visaliarotaryclub.com. For additional information, contact Paul Hurley at 740-3677 or email [email protected].
