The Rockaway Rotary Club held its annual Century Club Dinner and reverse raffle last Wednesday evening, September 23 at Roma View in Howard Beach.
The popular event was attended by many club members, well known business and community personalities, and guests who enjoyed the hospitality of the Rotary Club while helping to support the many charitable and humanitarian causes championed by Rotarians. The Club distributed over $8000 in prize money and a host of valuable door prizes.
