The Rotary Club of Placerville will be presenting the eighth annual Lobster on the River at the Coloma Resort on Saturday, Sept. 7.

Members of the service club are busy planning for this annual fundraiser that takes place on the shores of the South Fork of the American River near the site where gold was discovered in 1848.

The 2013 Lobster on the River is a golden opportunity to enjoy a pleasant evening with friends, gold food, prizes and more from 5:30 to 10 p.m.

Headlining the live entertainment this year will be Garratt Wilkin and the Parrotheads.

Catering for the event is by Rudy’s Hideaway of Rancho Cordova. On the menu will be a choice of lobster or filet mignon accompanied by Caesar salad, baked potato, clam chowder in bread bowls and dessert. A no-host bar will be on site.

In addition to dinner and entertainment those attending will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for several high-end prizes including a brand new 2013 Tracker Super Glide fishing boat valued at $14,000 with only 250 tickets sold.

Tickets for Lobster on the River are $65 per person and available at locations throughout El Dorado County including The Paint Spot, Thompson’s Toyota, Thompson’s GMC Buick, Terri Prod’hon CPA, Sierra Gold Graphics, Stymeist Auto Body and Coloma Resort.

Tickets can also be purchased from any Placerville Rotarian.

Proceeds from the 2013 Lobster on the River will benefit the projects and organizations supported by the Rotary Club of Placerville such as the ongoing renovation of Rotary Park and more.

The Rotary Club of Placerville lives by the motto of “Service above Self” and aims to provide various resources that enrich the educational, recreational and humanitarian needs of communities. Although the projects differ from club to club, Rotarians from all over the world share the common goal of eradicating polio.
