Get your ticket today – Dinner for Eight


The members of the Rotary Club of Wawa are currently selling tickets for a gourmet dinner cooked by talented Rotarians. The purchase of one $20 ticket will get you a chance to win a gourmet dinner for eight valued at $1,800. This dinner includes transportation from Wawa to Rock Island Lodge and return; and complimentary wines with each course, music, coffee & tea. There are only 350 tickets available for sale – so your chances are good!

If you are the winner you will have to choose seven friends to join you. That may be tough to do because once the word is out – you may have more friends than you think! This dinner is sure to be absolutely delicious. The only question is just what is for dessert? There are no hints, and it is a Chef’s Surprise… Rumour has it that Judy Moore is donating dessert…

Once you have figured out who your friends are… select your dinner. You have three choices:

Dinner #1 

  • Cucumber Cups with Smoked Salmon Mousse
  • Cream of Greilled Red Pepper Soup
  • Arugula, Pear & Asiago Cheese Salad
  • Lime Basil Sorbet
  • Rack of Lamb Herb Crusted with Lamb Sauce

The rack of lamb, stuffed turkey roll or prime rib… Choices, choices, choices. You may have to put it to a vote amongst your group. Or will you, the lucky ticket winner make that important choice?

Once the decision of menu is made, get ready to enjoy your dinner on May 28th. Dress up for this special night, and wait for your ride. Arrangements will be made to pick everyone up in Wawa and bring them out to Rock Island Lodge. Your party will have a great dinner, enjoy complimentary wines selected to enhance your dining pleasure, and after dessert, perhaps a fabulous Lake Superior Sunset will be the perfect end to the evening.

The draw is Friday morning, May 13th – so someone will have a very lucky Friday the 13th!
