This Seaside-themed piece by Luke Verly, previously on display at Grocery Outlet, is one of the Rotary auction items. 

Seaside Rotary Club & Foundation’s “Almost Back to the Beach” virtual fundraiser, Saturday, Oct. 9 from 6 to 7 p.m.

Some examples of live auction items include a seven-night stay at a Maui Condominium, a six-night stay at a beautiful mountain cabin in North Carolina, a metal sculpture of the Seaside Turnaround created by recent Seaside High School student and artist Luke Verly, a beautiful neon sign of the Portland Trailblazers, and 70 silent auction items.

There will also be an opportunity to financially support the Seaside Rotary holiday programs which includes Santa’s Workshop providing gifts to hundreds of south county children, Adopt-a-Family and Shop with a Cop.

Seaside Rotary canceled last year's event during the height of the pandemic.

Seaside Rotary supports scholarships for Seaside students moving onto college and trade programs from the Seaside Rotary Foundation, awarding more than $20,000 annually. Seaside Rotary Club is renowned for its successful exchange program, holiday giving and local service programs. Seaside Rotary works with Rotary International on peace projects and to eradicate diseases worldwide.
