Join locals for an evening of dining and dancing this Saturday, April 21st in Half Moon Bay. All profits from the event will go to Coastside charities and scholarships for local high school students. Festivities will begin at 6 p.m. at Mullins Bar and Grill, at 2 Miramontes Point Road.
The evening, “A Night in Rio,” celebrates the music and gaiety of the Rio Carnival. Tickets of $85 per person include a welcome drink at a pre-dinner reception, dinner with wine, and entertainment.
Tickets can be purchased by calling Gail at (650) 726 - 5646. Seating is limited, so buy tickets early.
During the welcome reception from 6 to 7 p.m., partygoers can bid silently on auction items donated from local businesses.
After dinner, a short “live” auction will offer special donated items such as golf and baseball outings. All proceeds will be transferred directly to charities and scholarships. No funds are used for “administration.”
A demonstration of Latin dances by instructors Bill and Andrea Cook will be sure to dazzle the crowd. As Latin rhythms play throughout the night, there will be an opportunity to dance to the energetic beat of the salsa, cha-cha, or rumba. Those who prefer to take it easy can box step to the slower, romantic bosa nova.
The Coastside Women’s Club organized the event. Sue Perls, President of the club, explains, “We welcome attendees to wear masks, vibrant colors, or whatever you want. As in Carnival, anything goes! A fun night is guaranteed.”
Event organizer Virginia Perry invites businesses to “reserve an entire table.” She adds, “Neighbors can join together to reserve a table. Costumes are optional… but above all, we want everyone to have fun and be part of the party magic.”
Businesses may donate by offering gift certificates for goods and services. The club is a 501c (3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
The Coastside Women’s Club is open to all women on the Coastside. Information about joining the club can be found at www.coastsidewomensclub.org.
