Big night planned for From the Heart gala

ROCHELLE — In less than a month, the annual From The Heart Gala event will be held in Rochelle and tickets can now be purchased online.
The Rochelle Rotary Club’s annual From the Heart dinner-auction is the organization’s premier fundraising event of the year, bringing corporations, businesses, couples and individuals together to help support important service agencies in the Rochelle area community. The gala, which will be held on Saturday, Feb. 2, raises more than $46,000 for eight local non-profit groups that provide valuable family services in and around the Rochelle region.
In 2018, the From the Heart Auction was sold out. Because of this, the event is being moved to a new venue this year at the Flight Deck Bar and Grille, 1207 W. Gurler Road, Rochelle. This venue will allow more guests to attend this elegant evening which includes delicious gourmet food stations, while giving guests the opportunity to bid on a large array of fabulous live and silent auction items.
