It will be an evening of 1920’s Prohibition-era fun including heavy hors d’oeuvres, open bar, dancing to jazz and swing music with the Charleston Swing Dance Association, games, a grand prize raffle, and a silent auction with themed packages.

The East Cooper Speakeasy is the major fundraiser that the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club has planned for this year as a way to support local and Rotary International charities. Organizers were very pleased with last year’s inaugural event that raised $18,000 for the named charities. Due to the success, the Club anticipates more guests, more incredible period costumes, and even more tempting auction items this year.
