It was a lucky night for local charities as the Rotary Club of Alexandria Central held its inaugural Sips For Saints Fundraiser March 8 at The Atrium in Old Town.
With a theme of “Eat, drink and be charitable,” the event featured food and beverage tastings from dozens of local restaurants along with raffle prizes from Alexandria retailers.
Irish step dancers from the O’Neill James School of Irish Dancing and the Boyle School of Irish Dance provided entertainment.
Proceeds from the evening support the mission and charitable projects of the Alexandria Central Rotary Foundation. Those include promoting peace and conflict resolution, the prevention and treatment of disease, maternal and child health, literacy, providing clean water and sanitation, and developing economic opportunity for those in need.
Alexandria’s newest Rotary club was founded six months ago and meets Wednesday evenings at Glory Days Grill. www.alexcentralrotary.org
