Friday the 13th was a lucky night for local charities as the Alexandria Central Rotary Club held its second annual Sips For Saints Fundraiser March 13 at The Atrium in Old Town.

The event featured food and beverage tastings from dozens of local restaurants along with raffle prizes from Alexandria retailers.

Irish step dancers from the O’Neill James School of Irish Dance provided entertainment.

Proceeds from the evening support the mission and charitable projects of the Alexandria Central Rotary Foundation. Those include promoting peace and conflict resolution, the prevention and treatment of disease, maternal and child health, literacy, providing clean water and sanitation, and developing economic opportunity for those in need.

Alexandria’s newest Rotary club was founded in 2018 and meets Wednesday evenings at Glory Days Grill. www.alexcentralrotary.org
