LEWISTON – The Lewiston Rotary Club is culminating its 100th Anniversary year with a 1920’s gala and tickets are on sale now. To be held at the Lewis-Clark Hotel, which, coincidentally, is also celebrating its 100-year anniversary this year, the gala will be held on October 22, starting at 5:00 p.m.
The suggested dress is 1920s high fashion or semi-formal attire, the cost is
$100 per person and everyone is invited.
“We wanted a fun way to celebrate our 100 years of community service in the Valley”, said Helen LeBoeuf, the coordinator for the event and longtime Rotary member. “What better way than to dress up, eat a fabulous meal, dance to the big band sound and have fun in the style of the era in which our Club began.”
The gala starts at 5:00 p.m. and attendees will be greeted at the door with a celebratory cocktail (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) reminiscent of the speakeasy days of the 1920s. The event will be hosted by Brad Melton, Master of Ceremonies and Lewiston Rotary Club’s own emcee and longtime member.
Dinner is at 6:00 p.m. featuring New York steak or a vegetarian option with accompanying side dishes, followed by a dessert bar. 7:00 p.m. dancing starts with live music from the Swing Notes, an 18-member swing/jazz band from Lewiston.
Throughout the evening themed gift baskets will be given away to lucky attendees.
Tickets to the gala are available now and you can get them by calling Helen LeBoeuf at (208)790-4590, or emailing [email protected].
A service organization that is open to everyone, the Lewiston Rotary Club’s philanthropic efforts include providing scholarships for LCSC students, sponsoring the Lewiston Rotary Bike Rodeo, and funding support for the Snake River Community Clinic, the Idaho Foodbank and the Salvation Army among others.
The Lewiston Rotary Club claims, “We aren’t your Father’s Rotary Club”, and invites you to come to see that for yourself at a weekly lunch meeting on Wednesdays at noon at the Hells Canyon Grand Hotel, located at 621 21st St, Lewiston. To learn more go to https://www.lewistonrotary.org.
