This year’s Reverse Raffle/Dinner Dance returns to the Hilton Garden Inn/Twinsburg on Saturday, May 3rd at 6 pm.
The event will include entertainment by the popular local band, Chance. Chance features nine pieces with horns and highly active vocals. They have had success in many forms of live entertainment, including intimate rock, jazz, and dance clubs as well as wedding, parties and large or small corporate functions. They’ve also performed in several live concerts with internationally-know acts such as the Beach Boys, K.C and the Sunshine Band and Donny Osmond.
As in the past, the Club will sell side boards and a Chinese auction will be held. Donations of prizes for the auction are encouraged. The grand prize in the raffle is $3,000. Tickets are $150/couple and are available first come/first served. To donate prizes or make reservations, call John Zito at 440/248-6308. All proceeds will go to the Solon Italian Club Foundation scholarship fund.
A block of rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn has also been held for attendees. To make room reservations, call 330-405-4488.

Interest has grown among members since the Christmas party to continue an on-going contribution to support our troops overseas. A regular collection of items will be made at our monthly meeting to send to the armed forces serving overseas. We will collect: toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, deodorant, dental floss, cotton balls, disposable hand and feet warmers, toilet paper, razors, hair gel, shampoo, soap, chap stick, wet wipes, foil packets of chicken, dried fruit, energy bars, snack cakes, hot chocolate, candy, beef jerky, playing cards, batteries, puzzle books, and blank greeting cards (to send notes back home).
In addition, we encourage donations of money to defray the cost of shipping packages to the troops.
