Dancing with the Chamber Starz Gala

Barb’s Swinging Footloose for Rotary Club and Darien Chamber 

On November 12, I am representing Rotary Club of Darien in the 3rd Annual Dancing with the Chamber Starz Gala Fundraiser at Ashton Place.  I am competing with 10 other Darien Chamber members for the coveted Mirror Ball Trophy!

It is an honor for me to represent the Rotary Club of Darien in this gala event! Having only been a member for 2 years, their “service above self” is what drew me in. What this organization does locally, nationally and internationally is incredible – volunteering time and talents to help others!  

I am also proud to be a 12 year member of the Darien Chamber of Commerce. Their focus is to provide their members with business and personal development through networking, education and marketing opportunities. My business has benefitted from the many opportunities offered through the Chamber. 

So you see, the Rotary Club of Darien and the Darien Chamber are very important to me and that’s why I am “Swinging Footloose” to raise funds for both of these fine community organizations. Your contributions here will be shared equally between the Rotary Club and the Darien Chamber:

·  Rotary Club of Darien “Food for Kids Backpack Program” provides nutritional meals and snacks to children on weekends whose primary source of food is the school cafeteria during the week. Currently we feed 195 children but there are many, many more in need of this program.

·   Darien Chamber of Commerce sponsors Darien Dash & Darien Fest in addition to helping local businesses (including mine) connect with the community. Funds will be used to continue these programs…and my quest for the trophy! 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. If you would like to attend the event, go to tickets are on sale until November 2.  

Thank you for time and consideration.
