An ‘Affaire’ to remember in Seaside

Rotarian Les McNary discusses some of the auction items of A Sweet Affaire to a gathering crowd at a previous event.

SEASIDE — The twelfth annual “A Sweet Affaire” will be held 4 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday, March 10, at the Seaside Civic & Convention Center. The event features wine, beer other non-alcoholic beverage tastings, signature small-bite appetizers provided by local restaurants, fine chocolates and desserts, live music, and raffle and auction items.

The event is one of the year’s major fundraisers for the Sunset Empire Parks & Recreation and Seaside Rotary Foundations.

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.

The silent and live auctions include gift certificates from several local restaurants, spas and hotels, gift baskets, movie passes, U of O football tickets, a private laser tag party, salmon fishing trip and “An Opportunity Drawing” featuring a fabulous getaway for three nights at the Petite Auberge Hotel in San Francisco. The getaway includes a room with a fireplace, breakfast each morning and wine and hors d’oeuvres each evening. Also, a $100 gift certificate for dinner at Alioto’s at Fisherman’s Wharf and $150 extra fun money — a $1,200 value.

Tickets for this adult event are $35 and may be purchased at the Sunset Pool, the Bob Chisholm Community Center or from a Seaside Rotary Club member.
