ODESSA -- The Odessa Rotary Club has announced that it will hold its first Rotary Celebrity Roast on Saturday, March 1, starting at 6:30 PM at the Odessa Country Club. The service organization has chosen former Mayor Larry Melton as its first “Man of the Hour” and he will be roasted by several individuals who know him best, including Odessa City Manager Richard Morton, former Mayor Mike Atkins, Chamber President Mike George, family members and numerous others.

The event is a fundraiser to support the Odessa Rotary Club’s international project which supports a children’s orphanage in Kericho, Kenya, under the direction of Care Highway International, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) humanitarian aid organization in the U.S, U.K., Spain and Africa.

“This should be one of the most fun events this year in Odessa,” states Odessa Rotary Club President Mark Flowers.

“Everyone knows and loves Larry Melton, and he can certainly take a joke as easily as he hands them out. A fun-filled evening is guaranteed for all who attend,” he adds.

Also in attendance that evening will be British film actress Caroline Goodall, who serves as Care Highway International’s Global Ambassador. Ms. Goodall has appeared in “Schindler’s List” and “Hook” under the direction of Steven Spielberg, as well as numerous movies and TV programs throughout the world.

“It’s a real honor to have Ms. Goodall at the event. She, like everyone in attendance, will have a great time,” adds Flowers.

Sponsor and event tables, as well as individual tickets for this first-year event, are available by contacting Odessa Rotary Club Secretary Bonnie Phillips at 432-638-3849

The Odessa Rotary Club is a member of Rotary International, an international service organization whose purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.
