Quota International of Kenosha-Racine, Wisconsin, U.S.A.
Quota Cares Month—Honorable Mention Winner
A restaurant filled with swirling poodle skirts, letter jackets, and Elvis tunes… Sound like the 1950s? Think again! The Quotarians of Kenosha gave the Brat Stop restaurant a whole new look when they held their Third Annual Sock Hop. The event, which benefited several Club service projects, including the Cops ‘n’ Kids Program, was open to the public, especially families.
Nearly 300 people danced to the music of the 50s and 60s, many decked out in vintage attire. One guest circled the dance floor on roller skates, and even Elvis made an appearance! The festivities included a band, “The Rydell Reunion,” which played the songs of the era.
Guests had a good time dancing, eating, and participating in a silent auction and 50/50 raffle. Along with a good time, their participation generated $4,700 in revenue and several boxes of new and gently used books.
The project’s success was made possible through 100 percent club participation. The few members unable to attend made contributions to the silent auction or provided financial donations. Advanced advertising—flyers and radio and newspaper ads—publicized the rockin’ affair. The advertising and hard work translated into a fun time for all and an opportunity for Quota to make the community aware of its service projects and recruit new members.
