Rotary Club of Annapolis Announces Black Tie & Diamonds Gala

Annapolis, MD (February 28, 2022) The Rotary Club of Annapolis has announced that Let’s Chow will be the beneficiary of its Black Tie & Diamonds gala in 2022.

A single organization is selected each year to receive proceeds from the fundraiser in order to make a
significant impact toward its mission. This year Rotary is proud to support the work of Let’s Chow, a nonprofit
founded by Jordan Foley USNA ’12, to support veterans and bridge the gap between leaving the service and
entering the culinary industry. Let’s Chow provides cooking therapy, cookware donations, culinary education,
and business advice for aspiring food truck or restaurant owners. To learn more see www.letschow.org.

Black Tie & Diamonds will be June 11, 2022 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at the beautiful new Atreeum at Soaring
Timbers on Bestgate Road.
The event includes an open bar, tastings, hors d’oeuvres, full dinner, decadent
desserts, and dancing with music by Intensity. There will be both an extensive silent auction and live auction
with vacation getaways and autographed sports memorabilia. An exception piece of jewelry donated from
Zachary’s Jewelers will be available, as well as a raffle to win a Peloton bike. Individual tickets for $160.00 or
