Rotary Club of 100 Mile House Lobsterfest serves community

Proceeds benefit students, local health and community organizations

Fresh Atlantic lobster is on the menu at the Third Annual Rotary Club of 100 Mile House Lobsterfest at the 100 Mile House Community Hall on Sept. 28.

They fly them across live and we cook ’em up live,” says Rotary Club president Maureen Pinkney.

We have lots of donations lined up for door prizes, silent auction and live auction.”

One of the larger live auction items this year is a houseboat trip for four days for 15 people.

Last year, the local Rotary Club raised more than $20,000 at the event. Tickets are $75 each and include a charitable tax receipt of $40, Pinkney explains.

Most of the money we raise stays here either helping our local youth or the hospital or local organizations that financial help.

We are sending a student to Educo (adventure school) again this year.”

It starts at 6 p.m.

Only 200 tickets will be sold and although they’re not sold out yet, Pinkney advises people get their tickets early.

Tickets are available at RE/MAX Country Lakes or from Pinkney, who can be reached at 250-395-0462.

Everyone had a great time last year and we’re looking forward to it again.”
