2019-2020 Club Budget is presented
President Paul distributed the detailed Club Budget for 2019-2020. We are forecasting revenues of $95k, and after operating and program expenses, we expect to have $36.5 available to give out in scholarships and grants.
The assumptions are conservative – we are projecting a net $16.5k from the Triathlon, a net $17.5 from the Beefsteak, and $7k from the Super 50/50.
Speaking of Fundraisers...
We briefly discussed the upcoming Beefsteak and the Super  50/50. There was general consensus among the members to keep the price of the Beefsteak at $50/ticket this year.
We really do not make any money on the tickets, as the Brownstone charges us $46.50/attendee.
We are asking each Club Member to solicit gifts to the Tricky Tray early. Every member is responsible for $100 in new merchandise. Gifts should be at least $50 in value. Consider restaurant and service gift cards – they are very popular.
The Club also agreed to price the Super 50/50 tickets at $50. We are still in the organizing stages of this fundraiser, and we are planning to pull the winning tickets at our annual Charter Night event in March.
Gift of Life Update
At the time of our meeting last week we were very apprehensive over the prospects of our Gift of Life child, Hans. President Paul reported that the surgeon was very reluctant to do the procedure, as Hans’ condition was so grave, and there was no plan in place for the follow up surgeries.
Subsequent to the meeting a call with the cardiologist paved the way for an upcoming visit with another surgeon on Long Island, Dr. Cohen of Cohen Children's Hospital. Dr. Issenberg, the cardiologist, was somewhat confident that Dr. Cohen would be able to help.
Hans has an appointment with Dr. Cohen on Monday, August 5. Please keep Hans and his mother, Chairlyn, in your prayers.
Did You Ever Wonder if the Club is Insured?
Active U.S. Rotary clubs and districts are provided with general liability ("GL") and directors & officers/employment practices liability ("D&O/EPL") insurance through the U.S. Rotary Club and District Liability Insurance Program ("Program"). The Program is financed by insurance assessments collected from U.S. Rotarians on the July Club Invoice.
Note: The Program does NOT provide coverage for bodily injury or property damage sustained by a first-party insured, such as a Rotarian or volunteer. You need to look own health insurance and car/home/umbrella insurance.
