To purchase Lacy’s CD go to www.LacyJ

The CD includes 10 of Lacy's greatest hits and the two Rotary songs she performed at the RI convention in New Orleans "We Are Rotary" and "This Close".  Net proceeds go to Polio Plus. Lacy is a big supporter of Rotary's efforts to eliminate Polio.  Many people don't know that her sister is a Polio survivor.  Lacy is very supportive and appreciative of Rotary for all they do to make our world a better place.

Does your club need a new fundraiser? 

If your club needs a fundraiser that is fun, a good value, and requires a minimal number of man hours to plan, then consider hiring Lacy to do a benefit concert.  Unlike many club fundraisers most of the money from a concert comes from the community not your club members. Call Terry House at (775) 351-5514 or email  for more information

For advice on what it takes to do a concert for a club fundraiser email fellow Rotarian at
