SEASIDE — The 10th annual A Sweet Affaire will be held from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12 at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center, 415 First Ave. This community event will feature wine, beer, spirits, non-alcoholic beverage tasting, 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 for the event. Pianist Lynn Archibald will provide music.
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, gift baskets ranging from a wishing-for-summer-barbecue basket to a stay-at-home-date-night basket, unlimited movie passes, bowling parties, helicopters rides and zip line tours — and An Opportunity Drawing featuring a romantic getaway to Victoria, British Columbia, which includes a hotel stay for two nights, tea service for two and vouchers for Butchart Gardens and the Ferry Transport, plus champagne and truffles, a $2,500 value.
A Sweet Affaire is a fundraising event for scholarships and Seaside Rotary Foundation projects within the community.
Through the funding from the Sunset Parks and Seaside 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, over 300 Seaside families have received gifts for the holidays and high school students have been awarded college scholarships, been given opportunities to participate in youth exchanges programs and have enjoyed a safe graduation party. Participation will assist both foundation programs in making a difference in the lives of community members.
This event is for adults only. Tickets are $35 per person and are available at the Sunset Pool, the Bob Chisholm Community Center, from a Seaside Rotary member, or online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2800828
