Rotary ball offers cirque experience


Save the date, Saturday, Nov. 13: The Rotary Club of Truckee presents Cirque du Truckee for the community service group’s annual Rotary Cadillac Ball fundraiser.

The evening will feature dinner by Billy McCullough of High Camp and Dragonfly, music by Sneaky Creatures and Mr. D DJ, along with fire dancers, jugglers, carnival games and a silent auction, along with a surprise guest.

Proceeds from the event go to grants for projects and nonprofit groups that benefit the Truckee community. Since its inception, the Cadillac Ball has raised over $1.5 million, with all of event’s proceeds returned to the community through a monthly grant-making process, helping fill financial holes for hundreds of local nonprofits, charities, and grassroots organizations.

Funds raised by the Cadillac Ball have supported Our Truckee River Legacy, Sierra Senior Services – Meals on Wheels, youth and education, arts and culture, animal welfare, among other causes.

The Cadillac Ball at the Truckee Community Recreation Center begins at 5:30 p.m. with registration and cocktails, followed by dinner at 6:30.

Event tickets at $75 include dinner and entertainment. A VIP ticket at $100 adds reserved seating in the VIP section. Visit to purchase tickets and view a short video about the work of Rotary in the Truckee community.
