The Rotary Club of Franklin is holding its very first virtual fundraiser, so this means anyone around the globe can participate. The event is called Say It With Art: A Valentine Date Night & Live Virtual Fine Art Auction. All purchased art will be framed and be shipped to your home address - free shipping within the U.S.

In addition, we encourage folks to support local businesses by pre-ordering their custom Valentine Date Basket by February 5 for only $50. Each basket will include: A personalized Valentine; wine or bubbles; and, chocolates and cheeses. All basket items will be locally sourced and delivered by February 12. Just in time to enjoy those items along with our live, simulcast Virtual Art Auction, which will start promptly at 8:00 p.m. (ET).

Due to COVID-19, the Franklin club has struggled to provide our annual awards and community-service projects. This event will support our club's scholarship and leadership awards as well as the many service projects for the elderly and underserved planned for 2021 in our area.
