ROCHELLE — Invitations have been sent out and plans are coming together for the seventh annual Rochelle Rotary Club’s “From the Heart” dinner/auction event being held on Saturday, Feb. 1.
This year’s fundraising goal has been raised to $52,000 as event coordinators look to go over the $250,000 milestone since the gala started.
“We raised $150,000 in our first five years, but then last year we had a great year and raised $48,000, which took us to $198,000 overall,” explained “From the Heart” chairman Dave Eckhardt. “So, this year we are stretching our goal to $52,000 in hopes of getting to that $250,000 mark. That would be really great achievement.”
