The Rotary Club of Hudson invites you to join a select group of individuals, community organizations and businesses that have supported the Annual Gala for 34 years. Held in May each year, the Gala features a silent auction accompanied by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and a full course dinner with open bar followed by a rousing live auction of big ticket donated gift packages.
Typically 300 of your Hudson area friends and community leaders attend this festive evening to support their community. A Gala booklet highlights the beneficiaries, sponsors, advertisers and the live auction items. Patrons can also review the sponsors and auction items on-line before and during the event using their I-phones to place bids.
The value to the community of your Rotary Gala sponsorship includes:
  • Funding of youth oriented projects such as Hudson High School college scholarships, the Service Learning course, the Four Way Test speech contests and the Uncharted Waters workshop for college bound seniors.
  • Support of local institutions including the Western Reserve Academy Interact program and the Rotary Gift of Life program through Akron Children’s Hospital.
  • Enhancement of community initiatives such as Hudson EMS Outreach, Hudson Job Search, Hudson Community First and HCTV.
  • Reinforcement of local arts and culture including Western Reserve Chamber Music, Taste of Hudson and Art on the Green.
  • Partnering with Hudson Boy Scout Troop 321 to preserve the historic log cabin in Hudson and to help maintain Camp Manatoc
  • Helping Rotary International help the World
The value to you as a citizen, business or community service organization includes:
  • Exposure to community leaders, residents and organizations that will appreciate your kindness
  • Association with high quality sponsors and donors coming together for a good cause
  • Inclusion in news releases highlighting sponsors, donors, beneficiaries and attendees
