Monte Carlo success

Rotary Monte Carlo night nets big bucks for local organizations

Cadets from the 676 Kittthawk Air Cadet Squadron sell Lugaro Diamond Balloons at the third annual Rotary Monte Carlo night at the Viscount Aerocentre Sept. 28. One lucky winner purchased a balloon that contained a $2000 gift certificate.

The Sidney by the Sea Rotary club held their third annual Monte Carlo night on Sept. 28 at the Viscount Aerocentre and raised more than $20,000 to give back to the community.

“Over 400 people turned out for an evening of dancing with the Timebenders, casino tables and great silent and live auction items,” said Clint Flood, Sidney by the Sea Rotary public relations officer. “All the money raised from the event is going back into our community in various projects that will help youth, family and seniors.”

Apart from raising a hefty chunk of cash, the organization handed out over $2,700 that night to the local Sea and Air Cadets and the Sidney Lions food bank.
