Just A Few More Questions…
Are tickets available the day of the event?
No, tickets will not be available on the day of the event. If not sold out, tickets will be on sale until October 2nd at Noon. You may purchase tickets online by clicking the “BUY TICKETS” button above.
Where does the money go?
Edmonds Rotary is continuing to raise $25,000 for Mika’s Playground, an inclusive playground that will be built as part of the Civic Park renovation project. In addition, funds will support Edmonds Waterfront Center as well as our local scholarship fund. Since 1976, the Rotary Club of Edmonds has awarded more than 300 scholarships to graduating seniors from Edmonds-Woodway, Meadowdale and Scriber Lake High Schools. The total amount awarded has been over $300,000.
Really? $50 for 2 Growlers or Bottles of Wine and a Mug?
First, remember this is a fund-raising event. Funds are going to help build a new inclusive playground, fund local student scholarships, the new Edmonds Waterfront Center and other worthy projects.
Second, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We promise that someday in the future, you’ll be talking about (and remember) the year we had a virtual Oktoberfest. Don’t you want to be part of it?
But if you still need to know why this is a great deal, here you go: $50 probably doesn’t even get you 10 beers (2 growlers) at any Seattle area bar, plus online guest appearance, hanging out and chatting with neighbors in Zoom, not having to worry your kids, and did we mention you’ll also be drinking for a good cause?
