Signature Fundraising Events
The Rochester Junior Women’s Club hosts four signature fundraising events in Rochester Michigan, per club year. These events are generously supported by our patrons and sponsors in the local community. Proceeds from these events support charities in Oakland County, Michigan.

Our 19th annual Lobster Boils takes place on Saturday, September 30th, 2017 at the Older Persons’ Commission Center in Rochester. This event has become a staple in the Rochester area and is a great way to “kick off” the fall season. Lobster lovers place their orders via web or mail. Let us know if you would like your lobster live or ready to serve, the time you want to pick them up, and the Rochester Juniors take care of the rest. We fly in live New England lobsters, approximately 1-1 ¼ lb each. We will cook’em, wrap’em, and have’em hot and ready for you. Just drive up and we’ll get them to you, no need to get out of your car! All this can be had for just $21 per lobster.
Our newest fundraiser met with great success last year and we are bringing it back for a second year! The evening is a fun filled girl’s night out with lots of laughs and chances to win ‘White Elephant’ gifts along with a few serious prizes. BINGOmania will be held at The Rivercrest Banquet Center, Wednesday, October 25, 2017. The cost is $30 in advance; we expect this to be a sellout event again this year.
Spring Highlights Luncheon & Boutique Shopping
Our 11th annual luncheon will be held on March 10th, 2018 at The Palazzo Grande Banquet Hall. This event is one of our biggest fundraisers and attracts well over 300 women each year in the 25-65 age range. Upon entering the venue, each guest will ‘walk the red carpet’ and have a photo op in front of the ‘Step and Repeat’. Each guest receives a signature tote bag filled with “goodies”. Upon entering the banquet hall, the guest have the opportunity to shop at over 40 local area boutique vendors and during lunch will enjoy a wonderful fashion show which engages some of our charitable recipients as well as RJWC members as models. Tickets for this event are $50 per person and there are many sponsorship opportunities available.
Haute to Trot – Kentucky Derby Party
Our annual “Haute to Trot” Kentucky Derby event will be held May 5, 2018 at a The Myth Golf and Banquet of Oakland. This extremely popular fundraiser attracts over 200 horse racing fanciers and party revelers alike. Guests will have the opportunity to watch the derby “live” and place their bets for “Win, Place or Show”. Guests are able to bid on a variety of silent auction items and enjoy Kentucky Derby style foods topped off with the traditional Mint Julep. Many of our guests enjoy dressing up in Kentucky Derby themed hats and attire for a chance to win prizes for the “best” themed outfit! No Kentucky Derby would be complete without a cigar bar for guests who dare and a D.J. with dancing to round out the evening.
Tickets for this event are $85 per person and there are many sponsorship opportunities available.
