THE National Bank presents the meal that serves the community
Bettendorf, IA – As it prepares to host the Sixth Annual “Lobsterfest” presented by THE National Bank, the Bettendorf Rotary Club looks to another successful year of serving the meal that provides service to the Quad City Area community.
The New England-style lobster bake is set for Saturday, June 16th – 5:30 to 10 PM – at Rivermont Collegiate, 1821 Sunset Drive in Bettendorf. Tickets, priced at $70.00 each or a table of eight for $480.00, are available now by calling (563) 445-4264. The event is open to the general public.
THE National Bank is the new presenting sponsor. Additional major sponsors are RLS and Associates, Inc., Iowa American Water, Bowe Machine Company, Quad-City Times, Results Marketing, Rivermont Collegiate, McGinnis-Chambers Funeral Home, Midland Communications, Senior Star at Elmore Place, OnMedia, WOC NewsRadio 1420, Isle of Capri, HyVee and Weerts Funeral Home.
In addition, “Lobsterfest” involves several groups such as the Scott Community College Culinary School, Culinary Kids of Family Resources, Inc. and the Boy Scouts of America that assist other volunteers in delivering the fresh meal of Maine lobsters. New this year will be acoustic entertainment provided by Quad City native and national recording artist Danika Holmes (www.danikaholmes.com).
Thanks to funds raised at last year’s event, the Bettendorf Rotary Club’s Charitable Giving Board awarded direct grants to area charities totaling $20,000. There also was $6,000 in scholarships to students pursuing higher education.
“Our club is fortunate to have great friends and businesses that go above and beyond to support this unique event,” said BRC President Scott Naumann. “The evening is already memorable for everyone involved. Once people learn the Lobsterfest story, it truly brings our mission of service to life. We look forward to welcoming the community again on June 16th.”
