The Lewisburg Rotary Club is planning its annual Diamonds and Burlap extravaganza for March 23 at the Lewisburg Elks Club.
The popular event includes wine and dinner prepared by Bella Casa, silent and live auctions, as well as numerous opportunities to win cash prizes.
The evening begins at 5:30 with drinks and a preview of the auction items. Dinner is served at 6:30 and entertainment begins at 7:30, hosted by auctioneers Paul Grist and Steve Hunter.
Some of the activities planned are a half-and-half drawing and a Heads and Tails game that was greatly enjoyed last year by attendees.
The event is open to all. Tickets are $35 and may be purchased by contacting Martha Hilton at 304-645-4966 ext. 104.
