Extravaganza Italiana a success

The Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial held its signature fundraiser, the Extravaganza Italiana.

The Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial held its signature fundraiser on Saturday.

The Extravaganza Italiana was a great success.

Once again, the generous people of the Comox Valley responded with donations and purchased tickets so they could help the club raise funds for service projects.

The Cumberland Recreation Centre was filled with 280 participants who enjoyed good food prepared by Custom Gourmet chef Dawn McRae and her staff and generally had lots of fun participating in the various activities including the silent and live auctions.

Once again, David Stevens and his spouse Kathy conducted a lively live auction.

The crowd was so generous and got into the spirit of the fundraiser that a bucket of rocks was auctioned by David that earned a winning bid exceeding $500.

A package including a pair of tickets to the Paul McCartney concert in Vancouver on Nov. 25, return airfare and accommodations was bought for $2,600.

The club will use funds raised from this event for its various community and international projects.
