ESTEVAN - The Rotary Club of Estevan hosted a sold-out Lobsterfest at Affinity Place on Friday. After two years of alternative formats, the biggest fundraiser of the year for Estevan's Rotary finally returned to its traditional setting.
Over 600 guests were treated to a delicious lobster and steak supper.
They also had an opportunity to partake in a silent auction and 50/50 draw. The lucky winner took home almost $2,000 cash. The silent auction brought in about $6,000.
And the event allowed the organization to raise over $20,000 for the club’s foundation for bigger projects and also a similar amount of money for the local club, bringing the total to approximately $40,000.
Estevan Rotary president Amanda Olsen said that both the foundation and the club support local initiatives, and then the foundation has some “international focus as well.”
