Kent Rotary's Escapades Dinner and charity auction is May 22

The Rotary Club of Kent is gearing up for its big event of the year: the annual Escapades Dinner and Charity Auction.

Billed as Kent’s oldest and largest annual charity auction, this year’s event takes place May 22 at the Kent ShoWare Center.

Tickets are $65 per person, and the admission includes dinner and the opportunity to participate in multiple auction formats, from silent to live. Auctions start at 5 p.m., and dinner is served at 7 p.m.

Funds raised from the event go to support Kent Rotary’s many community activities, including those involving youths and schools.

There’s a vast number of items up for bid in this year’s event.

Everything from summer nights at Crystal Mountain Heights, to a simulator flight, a day with King County Search Dogs, a Whidbey Island weekend getaway - even the chance to “Rent a Rotarian.”
