Elks Announce Fundraiser

The Alameda Elks Lodge No. 1015 has announced its “Shaken, Not Stirred” charity fundraiser will take place Saturday, Sept. 16, from 7 to 11 p.m. Proceeds from the evening will benefit many East Bay community programs.

The James Bond-themed event will feature a champagne reception, all-night hors d’oeuvres, casino-style gaming, dancing to the sounds of the Generation Gap, a 19-piece big band and live and silent auctions. The Elks have pledged to contribute funds raised to programs helping veterans, providing care packages for active-duty military overseas and welcome home treats for Coast Guard crews, as well as dinners at the local DreamCatcher youth homeless shelter, scholarships and more.

Tickets cost $50 in advance or $60 at the door. Visit www.alamedaelks.org/tickets to purchase or learn more.
