Take a gamble on this year’s Spring Fling

The Perham Rotary Club will be holding its annual Spring Fling fundraiser on Saturday, April 26 at The Cactus in Perham.

The event will begin with a 5 p.m. social leading into Las Vegas-style gaming at 6:30 and a live auction at 9:30.

“Our intention with this year’s Spring Fling was to really crank up the fun factor,” said Spring Fling committee chairperson, Tammy Sturdevant. “In addition to traditional gambling tables (which will include fun prizes for all), we will have a card draw/wine pull game, various raffles, Plinko for prizes, quality silent auction items, as well as some creative live auction items.”

In keeping with cranking up the fun, this year’s event will include a two-hour dinner window, where attendees can visit five different Vegas hotel inspired food stations. Additionally, every ticket holder will be entered to win a trip to Las Vegas.

Attendees will also receive two drink tickets and gambling “money.” This “money” can be used at the Vegas-style gaming tables, or can be converted for other uses, including raffle tickets.

From a Husqvarna lawnmower to a chocolate diamond necklace, there will be many one-of-a-kind auction items up for grabs to the right bidder.

The Spring Fling event is Perham Rotary’s main fundraiser. Dollars generated through this fundraising effort allow Perham Rotary to continue to support important projects in and around Perham.

Tickets are $65 per person or $120 per couple and may be purchased in advance at Dean’s Country Market in Perham or from any Perham Rotarian.
