Annual Rock & Roll ‘fun-raiser’ set for Saturday

Posted

A very successful 21st annual Kiwanis Golf Tournament was held last week, with proceeds benefiting Camp Beausite Northwest. Organizing Kiwanians expressed their happiness and thanks to all of the sponsors and players. Camp Beausite Executive Director Claudia Edmondson was on hand to express her appreciation.

Tickets are on sale for a great Kiwanis “Fun-Raiser,” the fourth annual PT Kiwanis Rock & Roll Party, to take place Saturday, April 8 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Port Townsend Elks Lodge, 555 Otto St. So, dig up those ’40s, ’50s and ’60s outfits (costumes are encouraged but optional) and get ready to tap your feet and fingers. Dance, listen, socialize and plan on having fun! Tickets are advance-sale only at just $15 for this over-21 event. Purchase tickets at

brownpapertickets.com or from any Kiwanis member. Ticket sales, a 50/50 raffle, dessert silent auction and a photo booth help support the club’s many children’s and community service projects locally. Pizza and snacks are also offered this year by donation, and an East Coast swing dance lesson is given from 6 to 6:30 p.m. The band known as The Copycats & Friends features Joey Lazzaro on trumpet, Mark Holman on sax, Tom Svornich on drums, Dave Llewellin on bass, Dawn Martin on keyboard, Don Fristoe on guitar and Dick Atkins on guitar. The band members also belt out vocals to this nostalgic music event, and some guests are to add a few special numbers. Contests for best costume and best dance will be awarded prizes. See

ptkiwanis.org for details. Questions may be directed to Dick Atkins at 385-2585.

There’s always fun things going on with the Port Townsend Kiwanis Club! We’re looking forward to the “Christmas in July” fundraiser with the FreddyPink band to benefit the Kiwanis Club’s Kids Christmas project and also to the Classic Car Show in August. More to come on those next month.
