Bandon By-The-Sea Rotary's 18th annual Wine & Cheese Extravaganza fund-raiser is set for Saturday from 6 to 10 p.m. at The Barn, 1200 11th St. S.E., in Bandon's City Park.
The elegant and entertaining evening will feature tastings from four Northwest wineries, more than 50 cheese samples from around the world, hearty hors d'oeuvres, desserts and silent and live auctions.
Bandon Rotary member Joe Sinko, former Bandon Cheese Factory owner, obtains cheese for the extravaganza each year and presents a large variety for tasting. There is always leftover cheese that is auctioned at the end of the event.
Proceeds mainly benefit local and regional community programs but also support Rotary International projects. Tickets cost $25 each and are available at the door, or at Tiffany's Drugs, Bain Insurance, Bandon Mercantile or by calling 541-290-9989.
