About our 85th Anniversary Project.
Playground Project – GC Public School, Southampton – Everyone can play..!
We are embarking on an ambitious project to build an inclusive playground that will benefit all students, regardless of their abilities. GC Huston Public School firmly believes in creating an environment that fosters inclusivity, growth, and joy for every student. To achieve this vision, we are seeking support from the community.
The estimated cost of this project is approximately $115,000, and the school has already secured funds of around $30,000, pledging their dedication to making this playground a reality. However, we have a wonderful opportunity to bridge the remaining $85,000 shortfall together.
As we celebrate our 85th anniversary this year, the Rotary Club of Southampton has eagerly accepted the challenge of raising $85,000, symbolizing $1,000 for each year of our club's existence and we are dedicating the Fund A Need portion of the Auction to this exciting project.  We firmly believe that supporting this initiative will have a lasting impact on the lives of the students, fostering a sense of joy, belonging, and togetherness.

History of the Auction
Southampton Rotary Club has held an Annual Dinner and Auction every October since 2003, with a pause in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The idea for the auction came from a club member, Ron Luciano, who in the early years also took on the role of Auctioneer. The event was originally held at Chippewa Golf and Country Club (Now known as Southampton Golf and Country Club), but in recent years it has become the premier Fall event at the Walker House.
During the COVID-enforced pause, the club organized a number of virtual events including an East Coast Kitchen Party, Jazz for the Light, a St Patrick's Day Event, and a series of Cooking Shows. Each event featured an online auction.
Save the Date for our next Dinner Auction, the 20th Annual.
Saturday October 28th 2023 at the Walker House. Doors open at 5:30 pm.
