The Rotary Club of Saipan’s largest annual fundraiser has been finalized and will be held at the Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan on March 30 and features a 2019 Mitsubishi as its grand prize.
The Rotary Club at its weekly membership meeting last Tuesday at the Hyatt Regency Saipan announced that as of Tuesday, Las Vegas Night 2018 tickets would officially be sold after they finally secured their gambling permit from the Attorney General’s Office.
The event, which is slated to be held at the Fiesta Resort on Saturday, March 30, 2019, from 6pm to 12am, features a 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 or $10,000 as its grand prize.
The second prize is $3,000, third is $2,000, fourth is $1,000, and fifth is $500. There are also door prizes available.
Rotary Club vice president Brian Clayton noted that tickets may be bought from any member of the local Rotary Club, at Megabyte Saipan, at the McDonald’s Saipan headquarters in Dandan, and at the Northern Marianas Protection and Advocacy Systems in Garapan.
“When we have more [ticket outlets], we will let everybody know,” he said.
Ticket booklets are sold at $20 each and consist of five tickets while a single ticket costs $5 each.
According to Clayton, the proceeds of the event would either go to initiating the construction of their disability-accessible playground at the Sugar King Park or other park projects on-island.
“We are looking at a variety of different projects,” he said, adding that the Rotary Club board as well as its members had been in constant discussion on what projects the proceeds would go towards.
“We still have the repair of the Garapan Skate Park, the repair of the Kagman Family Park, and we have been approached by the American Memorial Park also to put something up there,” he said.
With all the planning, Clayton noted that the projects are easily determined once they actually had the proceeds of the event on-hand.
“We actually have to see the proceeds that we end up raising from the Las Vegas Night but it looks like we are going to end up doing another park project—that seems to be the most critical [project],” he said.
