Our Story

The Wellington Rotary Fundraiser Dinner is an annual event, held in the Highline Hall, Wellington Community Centre, in support of various charitable causes in Prince Edward County.  
 
In 2015, the "Grape Gatsby" event featured music and attire of the roaring '20s.  The very successful evening raised $8400 for the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Fund.
 
In 2016, "Grape Balls of Fire" focused on the fun of the '50s. This well attended evening earned $11,000, donated to the Storehouse Foodbank and the Wellington Community Gardens.
 
In 2017, we celebrated Canada’s 150th birthday with our “Canada 150, Eh!” evening.  Our charitable cause was our special project to raise funds for a New Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (PECMH).  We raised over $15,000 for the evening. 
 
In 2018, we celebrated "Saturday Night Fever Disco Ball", which was themed to the tunes of the late 70's.  Many participants came dressed in attire of the period and plan to dance the night away.  The evening included complimentary tastings of wine, cider, beer and spirits produced in Prince Edward County, along with a full course dinner by Chef Michael Hoy.  Throughout the evening, both silent and live auctions were featured, followed by dancing to the tunes of the 70's. We also had a Heads & Tails 50/50 Draw.   Proceeds from the evening were directed to the Wellington Rotary Foundation's New PEC Hospital Capital Fund.
 
This year, for 2019, we are teaming up with the Cattlemen's Association to present a County Classic Round Up.  The atmosphere will be informal, just like dinner with friends and neighbours on the farm.  We will be serving delicious tender Prince Edward County Roast Beef, as only the Cattlemen can provide.  We've slashed the price of the event to $40, and will have capacity for over 250 attendees.  We will still be providing wine, beer, and cider tastings prior to dinner, and throughout the evening,  both silent and live auctions will be featured.  Proceeds from the evening will be directed to the Wellington Rotary Foundaton's New PEC Hospital Capital Fund.
