Rotary dinner on the grow

The Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise is making its annual fundraising dinner bigger and better.

Giovanni’s Restorante will be preparing a gourmet dinner for the Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise fundraising gala at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. Giovanni served his fellow Rotarians (from left to right) Yvonne and Ron Stothers and Laurie and Allan Gannon a little sample of what they can anticipate when the event is held March 24.

The Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise is making its annual fundraising dinner bigger and better.

For three years a gourmet dinner and silent auction fundraiser was held at Giovanni’s Restorante, which could hold up to 50 guests. Now it has been moved to the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre to accommodate more people and include a night of dancing. The semi-formal gala will take place Sat., March 24 and will include a three-course, filet mignon dinner prepared by Giovanni’s Restorante. Proceeds support community services including the Qualicum Beach Middle School lunch program, Rainbows: Guiding Kids Through Life’s Storms, Oceanside Hospice, TOSH, KSS Achievement Awards, and the Rotary Youth Leadership Award.

Organizer Ron Stothers said they want to take the event to the next level.

“We hope to have a great time and continue to build on it for future years,” he said.

Cocktails are at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:30 and dancing to music by DJ Patrick Nicholson starting at 8:30 p.m. In addition to a silent auction and cash bar, a free limo service is being offered. Tickets are $65 and are available at several locations in Parksville and Qualicum Beach as well as from any local rotarian.
