East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club is pleased to announce that it raised $32,000 from the 2nd Annual Speakeasy… Prohibition with a Cause! The funds will be donated to Rotary charities, My Sister’s House, and East Cooper Community Outreach. This year’s event took place on Saturday, Oct. 21st at the Sweetgrass Event Center in Mount Pleasant. Tripp Hoover was the winner of the raffle drawing in which he opted to receive the $2000 cash reward. Many flappers and gangstas donned their Zoot suits and pearls to dance the night with the Charleston Swing Dance Association. Games, auction items, and the grand prize raffle of a trip to the Firefly Sunset Resort in Abacos, Bahamas all played roles in raising the funds for charity. Thank you to all who attended, volunteers, and our charity partners for making this event such a success!
