SEASIDE — You are invited to attend the 11th annual “A Sweet Affaire,” an adult event planned for 4 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, March 11, at the Seaside Civic & Convention Center.
This much-anticipated community event will feature wine, beer, spirits, other non-alcoholic beverage tastings, signature small-bite appetizers provided by local restaurants, fine chocolates and desserts, live music and a variety of raffle and auction items.
Local chefs, restaurateurs, vintners and brewers who have prepared and donated the afternoon’s appetizers, desserts and beverages will be on hand. Pianist Lynn Archibald will provide music for the festivities.
The silent and live auctions include an array of activities within and outside the area, donated by merchants and individuals, including gift certificates from several local restaurants, spas and hotels, beautiful gift baskets, unlimited movie passes, an in-home chef’s dinner, OSU football tickets, zip line tours and “An Opportunity Drawing” featuring a romantic getaway to The Lodge at Columbia Point in Richland, Washington, which includes a hotel stay for two nights, a gift basket from Hood River Distillers, champagne and chocolates — a $1,000 value!
Through funding from the Sunset Parks and Rotary Foundations, youth and adults have had access to positive recreation activities such as swimming lessons, senior aquatics, after-school care, art enrichment and summer camp programs.
In addition, more than 300 Seaside families have received gifts for the holidays; high school students have been awarded college scholarships and given opportunities to participate in youth exchange programs and enjoyed a safe graduation party. From sheltering the homeless, lighting Broadway Field, to feeding the hungry, your participation will help both foundations’ programs make a difference in the lives of our community members.
Tickets for “A Sweet Affaire” are $35 and may be purchased at the Sunset Pool, the Bob Chisholm Community Center, US Bank Seaside Branch or from a Seaside Rotary Club member.
