Throughout the year, the ROWC hosts and participates in different events to both raise money for charitable causes and to celebrate the special privilege of working together with our members as volunteers.

OCTOBER 2014

October 4, 2014 (Saturday): Autumn Musical Treats
Location: ROWC Clubhouse upstairs @ 7:30 PM
Our fall concert will feature everything from classics and broadway tunes, folk and roots/Americana music, and even some barbershop and acoustic pop!

All music will be provided by local artists volunteering their time and talents for two great causes: The Royal Oak Womans Club and the ROFUM Sack Lunch Program (a portion of funds raised from the evening will go to purchase food and supplies for this vitally important program for the homeless in our own city).

Cost: $20/person - order tickets online.
Beverages and snacks available for free-will offering in the lower level
100% of the ticket price supports ROWC's charitable causes & the ROFUM Sack Lunch Program.
