Arrrrggghhh, matey, pirates come upon Carbondale

CARBONDALE — The grub will be plentiful and the grog will be flowing at the Carbondale Rotary Classic at 5 p.m. Saturday.

The event, themed “Pirates of Carbondale,” is the Rotary Club of Carbondale’s “Happening” event, the annual benefit that funds the organization’s community service and humanitarian efforts.

The party takes place at the Gathering Center at The Orchard, 110 Snowmass Drive, and includes the popular Wall of Wine, both live and silent auctions, dinner, drinks, dancing and more. To keep with their tradition of theming their annual benefits, Rotary Club members are encouraging fun, pirate-themed attire to welcome summer.

The Happening starts at 5 p.m. Saturday, June 8. Tickets, or more appropriately the bounty, are $125 per person, which includes food and drinks, party favors, and dancing to live music.

The Carbondale Rotary Club provides scholarships to local students, helps with community service projects, and funds projects locally, stateside and around the world. The club recently granted $10,000 to support a women’s tree nursery in Niger as part of the Farmers of the Future program. The project, now in its pilot phase in three villages in Niger, is being implemented through the nonprofit Eliminate Poverty Now, founded by Carbondale Rotarians John and Judy Craig to promote economic opportunity in Africa, especially for women.
