The Rotary Club of Florence took to the high seas on Jan. 7 when it unveiled its 2014 auction theme, “The Swashbucklers’ Ball.”

There will be no shortage of buccaneers at the Florence Events Center on Saturday, March 8, as club members and their guests gather to raise money for scholarships.

In keeping with the theme, auction-goers will be entertained with the sounds of Randy Larsen of Island Accents and his steel drum musical selections.

With a capacity crowd of 260 expected, auction co-chairwoman Bobbi Brubaker says that more than half the tables have already sold out. Anyone interested in attending this year’s event should call 541-999-1822 for tickets and information.

In 2013, the Florence Rotary contributed more than $45,000 in scholarships for students at Lane Community College and at Siuslaw and Mapleton high schools. Scholarships range from $1,000 to $10,000 and support students in both community college and university degree programs.
