Rotary Celebrates 90th Anniversary with Gala for Cancer Pavilion Saturday

Celebrating a 90th anniversary can be done in many ways, but for the Marlborough Rotary Club raising money for the UMass Memorial Marlborough Hospital's Cancer Pavilion was the ticket.

“We are pleased to be partnering with the hospital to make this happen and limit the commute many patients face when getting [cancer] treatments,” said Club President Bonnie Doolin.  “Now if only we can hasten a cure ... since most of us have been touched by this devastating disease [cancer] in one way or another, Marlborough Rotarians have decided to do something about that as well!”

With the goal of raising $20,000 towards the pavilion, the Marlborough Rotary Club 90th Anniversary Gala will be held on September 29 at Hellenic Hall in downtown Marlborough.

Tickets to the Black Tie Optional event are being sold for $100 each, which will include dinner with a choice of prime rib or baked haddock and dancing Dom V’s Swing Band and DJ Scott Harris.

“This is going to be a classy event from start to finish!” said Gala Committee Chairman Dr. Nicholas Kofos.
