Rotary Club of Kennett Square holds successful Kennett on Top fundraiser

The Rotary Club of Kennett Square held its inaugural signature fundraiser, “Kennett on Top,” on Saturday, June 17. It was a fabulous party held on top of the parking garage in downtown Kennett Square and partygoers couldn’t have asked for better weather. With the dressy casual atmosphere, great food, fabulous wine, beer, and a signature cocktail, the party was a big hit. Patrons danced to the popular 2uesday Nite Band while soaking in the ambiance of vibrant Kennett Square. It was a party like no other in our area.
“We are especially grateful for our sponsors who helped support our event,” said Susan Minarchi, president of The Rotary Club of Kennett Square. “If it weren’t for their philanthropic outreach, we wouldn’t have had such a successful party.”  
All proceeds benefit the Rotary Club of Kennett Square’s support and volunteerism with the nonprofit agencies in the community, including Young Moms, Family Promise, Kennett Area Community Services, local police and emergency personnel, and more. 
“And a huge thanks goes to Matt Fettick, Mayor of Kennett Square, for being the Honorary Chair and to the Borough of Kennett Square for their support,” said Minarchi.
“What a great idea. I am happy to support The Rotary Club of Kennett Square,” said Scott Walker, a party attendee. 
The club is already planning for next year’s event, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 22, 2024. 
“We look forward to welcoming even more partygoers in 2024”, said Minarchi.
Chartered in 1949, The Rotary Club of Kennett Square is the first and longest-standing club in Kennett Square. The organization serves the community by actively seeking service projects, especially for children and education, to improve the lives of those who live in the Kennett Square area. 
The Rotary Club of Kennett Square meets at Trattoria La Tavola, 127 East State St in Kennett Square, on Tuesdays—the first, second, and fourth Tuesday over lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the third Tuesday for Happy Hour at 5:30 p.m. If you would like to attend a meeting, contact Sue Minarchi, President, at [email protected].
