CANCELLED: Sheffield Gala and Silent Auction

Rotary Club of Americus

May 16, 2020 6:00 pm— 10:00 pm

UPDATE: Due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 Annual Sheffield Gala has been CANCELLED. The 2019-20 Sheffield Winners will be honored in 2021 along with the 2020-21 winners.

If you made reservations at The Windsor Hotel, please call (229) 924-1555 to cancel your room.

The event was to be held at The Carnegie in downtown Americus on May 16, 2020, and included a catered surf & turf dinner, an auction, and special entertainment.

We will all be together again soon! In the meantime, wash your hands, stay safe, and stay home.


You won't want to miss the 2020 event! Rooms have already been blocked at the historic Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel in Americus (walking distance from The Carnegie). You may call them directly at (229) 924-1555 to access special pricing for SHEFFIELD GALA. The 30-room block includes Double Double, Double Queen, Single King, and Single Queen rooms. For best selection or to ensure your choice, please book early! The block will expire on April 15; however, since Sheffield Award Winners will not be announced until the District Conference, the Americus Rotary Club will have rooms available to accommodate all winners.

The Sheffield Leadership Award, established in 1994, is presented by the Rotary Club of Americus in honor of three Past District Governors – all from the same family and the Americus Rotary Club. It honors John West Sheffield (District 39, 1926-27), John W. Sheffield (District 690, 1961-62), and Langdon Sheffield (District 6900, 1975-76), who have each served this Rotary District as District Governors. The award is presented annually to the District 6900 club presidents (from each of the club size categories) who best exemplify the extraordinary leadership traits represented by the Sheffield family and execute their responsibilities in an exceptional manner.
