Redmond Rousers luncheon auction slated for Friday

Tickets are available for $40 and proceeds will benefit the Rotary District 5030 Dictionary Project in the greater Seattle area and the Imagine Scholar program in South Africa. Donations are also accepted.

The dictionary project focuses on providing dictionaries to all third graders living within the district, which includes Redmond, Sammamish, Kent, Woodinville, Tukwila, Federal Way, Seattle, Lynnwood and Rainier. The hard-cover Houghton Mifflin dictionaries use pictures and phonics, special language detective and vocabulary builder sections to promote learning.
The Imagine Scholar provides young people in South Africa's disadvantaged Nkomazi region with personalized education and mentorship at the Imagine Academy. The program aspires to help students such as 15-year-old Promise Magagula do more than just get by, giving them the tools to be the difference makers of their generation and bring lasting change to their communities.
Promise's dream is to be a doctor, which means almost perfect grades in South Africa -- something she has worked hard to achieve. Promise lives with both her parents, who are unemployed, in Schoemansdal, Nkomazi.
