Raise a Glass
This event is closed.
Join us for a one hour online Zoom event to help Lake Chelan Rotary Club raise funds to bring glass recycling back to our Valley! Tickets are $100 per Zoom account which includes one bottle of Fielding Hills 2019 Chenin Blanc, one bottle of 2017 Tribute Red Blend, and charcuterie plate for two. Enjoy a guided wine and food tasting and learn about the glass project while relaxing at home. This event is limited to 40 tickets!
With partial funding from the City of Chelan, County Department of Solid Waste, and the Washington Department of Ecology Recycling Development Center, the Club intends to purchase a commercial glass pulverizing system, which will turn used glass into glass sand and glass aggregate. The end products have a multitude of practical uses and will be available for sale to the public for a modest charge and for the City’s use in public works projects. This signature project will be operated by the Rotary Club at the City Recycle Center on Saturdays during published hours. A small fee will be charged for the drop-off of glass, enabling the Club to fund the costs of operations. Additional help is needed from our community NOW to make this service a reality. Your contribution will help us reach our initial fundraising goal of $150,000, enabling us to purchase the pulverizing system and the additional equipment and inventory required to launch the operation. Sponsorships are also available at an entry level of $1,000. Please help us bring this much-needed service to our community in 2021!
