Save the Date for “Deal or No Deal” Fundraiser Dinner & Game Show

January 27th, 2014 – Early details for this year’s “Deal or No Deal” fundraiser event have been released, with the date set for the evening of Saturday, March 15 at the New Rockford Golf Course and Event Center. The game, based loosely on the hit TV show, will award $2000 in cash prizes and many other giveaway items, in addition to audience mini-games and a full catered dinner.

The signature fundraiser is held by and on behalf of the New Rockford Community Foundation, with support from the New Rockford Area Betterment Corporation. Last year’s Deal or No Deal fundraiser generated $3800 for the Foundation, and $2000 cash was awarded to grand prize winners Roger Langley and Kenny Reis, with an additional $800 worth of prizes going to other players. As with all funds raised or donated to the Foundation, 100% of the event’s net proceeds are deposited into the Foundation’s permanent community endowment fund.

The New Rockford Community Foundation board raises money each year and gives away the interest earned on the total fund as grants to non-profit organizations in the community. All money raised goes into a permanent fund, providing a source of grant funds for local charities long into the future. Since its first grant round in 2010, the NRCF has provided $5700 in grants to local organizations, with another $2000 expected to be available for 2014 projects.

Watch for more details to be released soon – tickets will be available in a few weeks from Foundation board members. To learn more about the NRCF, make a donation, or get on the pre-sale list for tickets, contact the local coordinator, Jessica Dillon, at (701) 947-2205 or speak to any advisory board member: Josh Guler, Gail Weisenburger, Tom Hartl, Laura Anderson, Amy Cudworth, Kerri Allmaras, and Trisa Tedrow.
