On May 20th, 2017, the RCLB held its annual Sticky Wicket Croquet Tournament and Lawn Party.
There were approximately 140 participants, plus 20 Interact members from Heritage High School. A record number of 12 teams united in international themes to compete. Each team was represented with delicious ethnic food from around the world.
Through the course of the day, Norway beat  Sweden in the final round!
It was again a successful event with live and silent auction items both big and small consisting of a tea set to a trip to Spain. Estimated proceeds raised were approximately $16,500.
Beneficiaries of the event fundraising are: BackPack Buddies of Loudoun County, A Farm Less Ordinary of Bluemont and the Rotary Club of Leesburg Foundation.
Special thanks to Jim Gable and Kelly for use of their beautiful property for the event.
