Masters of Madness Gala

Eighty-five Birmingham Rotarians, guests and sponsors attended the second annual Masters of Madness Gala at the Village Club in Bloomfield Hills. The highlight of the evening featured a grand prize raffle drawing for a trip for two to the 2019 Masters Tournament. The trip was won by Joe Bauman and Bryan Frank, who split a raffle ticket. The evening was co-chaired by Regan Gilshire and Vic Pooler. Over $20,000 in proceeds will support Rotary’s literacy programs at Owens Elementary School, the Birmingham Rotary Endowment Fund, and the construction of a new water well in Uganda.
