The Rotary Club of Detroit will celebrate Women in Rotary, a luncheon event for everyone, including men, women, Rotarians and nonRotarians, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, October 15, 2014, at the Detroit Athletic Club.
This year’s event honors Amanda Good, chief executive officer of Alternatives For Girls, a Detroit-based nonprofit serving homeless and high-risk girls and young women. Since 1988, Good has headed this organization and built it from a volunteer-based group to a full-fledged human services agency.
Keynote speaker at the luncheon is longtime Rotarian and well-traveled member of the Traverse City Rotary Club, Marilyn Fitzgerald. The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self.” Both these women embody this motto in their daily lives.
Tickets are $30 in advance; $35 at the door and $15 for guests under the age of 30 years old who accompany a Rotarian. The Detroit Athletic Club is located at 241 Madison Avenue, in Detroit. Parking is available. Business attire is required.
