The 22nd Annual Rotary Seafood Spectacular will be held on Thursday, November 3, 2016.
This year we have a special offering.  If you purchase 4 Seafood Spectacular tickets at the regular price of $35, you will receive a bonus ticket for free.
We also are offering a special sponsor classification of "Master Fisherman."  This sponsorship level is available for only $100 and includes two sponsor tickets.
Other sponsor levels will be available, ranging from $25 for the "Seaman" level to $500 for the "King of the Sea" level.  Unlike the "Master Fisherman" these levels do not include sponsor tickets.
This year we are offering options for our guests who do not eat seafood.  Please let us know that you would like a non seafood option when purchasing your tickets.  We are also expanding our menu to include blackened fish of the day, red shrimp and grits and delicious crab cakes.
Ticket purchase is very easy.  Tickets will be available at our weekly club meeting.  You will have the option to pay by credit card, check, or cash.  You may also purchase your tickets on our web site.  The link is:  All tickets purchased online will be mailed prior to the event.
We look forward to our best Seafood Spectacular ever.  You don't want to miss this fantastic evening of fun, food and fellowship.
