The countdown has begun for the Monster Bash charitable fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom. Grab your reserved seat for an evening of fun, a fine selection of dinner entrees, a no-host bar with a spooktacular drink menu, a costume contest, and the music of Tucson’s popular band Day Job. Time to snag those reservations so you don’t miss out on the fun! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 … blast off to get your reservations at

The Rotary Club of SaddleBrooke plans to make the Monster Bash an annual fundraiser. This charitable event will support local charities and programs, as well as serve the needs of those in the Copper Corridor. Thanks to the generous denotations of La Posada, Oro Ford, and Filthy Pirate Coffee, the proceeds from your ticket will go to the people who really need help.

And did I mention the incredible entree selections? Why there’s a filet mignon, a salmon filet, or a stuffed portobello mushroom vegetarian option. Then, MountainView is going all out with a monstrous selection of spooktacular beverages. You’ll find all kinds of exciting Halloween-themed drinks at this no-host bar.

And don’t forget to get your creative juices flowing for your Halloween costumes. There will be prizes for the best costumes. It will be so much fun to see all the brilliant ideas. You may not even recognize your friends and neighbors. If your creative juices are no longer flowing, there’s always the Halloween Store and Amazon!

And who loves rock ‘n’ roll, Motown, and country hits from the ‘60s and ‘70s? Tucson’s own Day Job will be in the house! On June 7, the Arizona Daily Star surveyed Tucson about its favorite bands. And, boy, did Tucson answer. Listed in the most popular bands in Tucson was Day Job. The Arizona Daily Star has written other articles about Day Job, and you can check out their Facebook page. Who wants to dance the night away?

What is Rotary? Rotary is made up of your friends and neighbors who are working to make the world a better place. Rotary is the world’s largest volunteer organization and is found in more countries than the Red Cross, Starbucks, or McDonald’s. Together with our friends, we are working to make a difference and change lives.
