The Longwood Rotary Club’s “Around the World Gala” at Longwood Gardens on March 22 can literally send winners around the world.

The gala’s silent auction features trip packages: Six days at The Lodge at Big Falls in Southern Belize;  five days at Caleton 16, a private villa on the 16th hole at the Punta Espada Golf Course in Cape Cana, Dominican Republic; a tour of Vietnam and Cambodia for a week; six days in the Cape Winelands regions of Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch in South Africa; and a week-long photo safari in the Zulu country for a stay in the Nyala Country Manor and the Nyala Game and Heritage Safari Lodge.

Funds raised through the gala are invested primarily in the local community. In 2013, more than $50,000 was allocated. Longwood Rotary Club was the principal contributor to the new Anson B. Nixon Park playground in Kennett Square. Significant funds were also donated to the Kennett Area Food Cupboard, The Garage youth programs, the Kennett Area Senior Center, the Kennett Area YMCA Good Kids Campaign, Camp Dreamcatcher, and other causes.
