White Rock Beach will be bustling with activity next week when Semiahmoo Rotary Club hosts its 10th annual Wine and Dine fundraiser.

Sixteen Marine Drive restaurants will be taking part in the event April 12, serving a total of 600 hungry participants looking to enjoy some tasty food for a good cause.

Attendees will have the chance to visit four different restaurants – the first three serving savoury food and the fourth serving dessert – spending 45 minutes at each stop.

The Rotary Club has enlisted the help of two Vancouver Trolley buses, which will transport participants back and forth between restaurants. Parking is paid for by the club and all of the food costs are covered by participating restaurants.

Each year, Wine and Dine raises more than $25,000 towards Semiahmoo Rotary Club initiatives, including support of the Semiahmoo House Society and Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation.

Tickets to this year’s event, which kicks off Tuesday at 6:15 p.m., are $45 each and available at White Rock Travel, 1472 Johnston Rd.
