The Alamo Rotary event, set up to raise money for school music programs and local charities, will highlight swingin' 1950s music and dancing under the stars. Before that, high school bands will perform.
Wine tasting, dinner from local restaurants and activities for kids, including a rock climbing wall, will be offered at the family affair. It will be held 2-11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, at Alamo Plaza.
"Alamo has a small town feel, everybody knows everybody. This reinforces that idea," said rotary member Diane Barley, who has helped set up and organize the event for years.
Food selections from Forli's, Faz and El Balazo restaurants will be offered for dinner, and the wine samples will come from California vineyards. Anyone who wants to meet and mingle in the name of bettering the Alamo community is welcome.
The night is also known as a time to recognize an Alamo citizen of the year, someone who goes above and beyond to make the area a better place.
Last year, the event raised over $10,000 for Alamo Elementary, Rancho Romero Elementary, Stone Valley Middle School, Monte Vista High School, San Ramon Valley High School and Lucille Mauzy School.
Dinner will be from 5:30-8 p.m. and then the Cruise Tones will take stage to play late '50s tunes, followed by the Sun Kings, a Beatles tribute band. Tickets for dinner are $17, available at the event.
