The Rotary Club of Asheville, North Carolina, announces "Casino Rotary Royale: Live and Let Bid," its annual foundation benefit auction, at the Renaissance Asheville on Saturday, January 25, 2014, from 6-10 p.m. The Rotary Club of Asheville is in its 99th year, counting down the days to 100.

A fun, soup-to-nuts approach to the evening ensures this isn't an average ho-hum fundraiser.

"The night will be a blast!" Walston says. "Yes, people can come in costume. Having a James Bond theme, I think we will see everything from tuxedos and gowns to suits and slacks and business dressy."

During the evening's festivities, singer Peggy Ratusz will perform a diverse repertoire of jazz, swing, and classic favorites while guests enjoy a dinner selection of salmon, prime rib, and vegetarian fare, followed by silent and live auctions and a series of high energy raffles. To acquire tickets for the event, visit http://www.rotaryasheville.org/ .

The exciting range of items up for auction includes hotel gift certificates, hot air balloon rides, fine art, artisanal pottery, handmade scarves, a glass blowing class, a round of golf, a variety of wine and dine packages, a pub cycle tour, lunch or dinner at the Asheville Fire Department firehouse, an African Safari, trips near and far including diverse locales such as Philadelphia and Atlanta, a Catamaran sailing event, a menswear suit ensemble, make-your-own fine jewelry, and dinner for 8 with a private chef, among others.

"I promise it will be fun," says Walston. "Anyone will feel comfortable if they attend."

"Casino Rotary Royale: Live and Let Bid," an annual benefit auction for Rotary Club of Asheville, is at the Renaissance Asheville on Saturday, January 25, from 6-10 p.m. For more information, to become a sponsor, or to obtain tickets, contact Callie Walston and the Rotary Club of Asheville at http://www.rotaryasheville.org/ .
