Fundraiser with fun: Dancing and Tapas

Dancing With Tapas is a fun night for a serious cause.

Dancing With Tapas is a fun night for a serious cause.

On Saturday April 16, Rotary clubs of Campbell River will be hosting this event for the third time at North Island College.

Rotary Clubs of Campbell River and the Wheelchair Foundation of Canada are working together to deliver brand new wheelchairs to Colombia. Rotary members will personally deliver 280 wheelchairs to the needy and physically disabled people in this country, as they did at the end of 2007 in Peru, last year in Venezuela, and this year in Argentina. The Phillipines will be Wheelchair recipients in 2012.

Even though this night’s focus will be on the wheelchairs, it is also about the food and music from Latin America. The renowned South American band, Kumbia, will invite dancers again to Meringue, Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba and Tango. Non dancers will enjoy a Latin dance demonstration.

Rotary Clubs have committed to a bursary towards the Culinary Arts Program at North Island College.  Local chefs and the instructors and students of North Island College’s Culinary Arts Program will provide a gourmet’s delight of oyster, salmon, beef, pork and dessert Tapas.

Chef Hansi Zihlmann is creating Seafood Paella, a traditional Spanish dish, for the first time at Tapas Night. With a ticket for only $35 everyone can give his or her share to this fundraiser. As well as music, food and entertainment there will be door prizes, and a silent and live auction. Tickets are available from The Framing Post.
