About $12,000 was raised at the annual event, an increase of $4000 over last year, club spokeswoman Sue Mackinlay said.

''Some of the money will go to community projects, some to the Rotary Foundation and some to overseas projects Rotary are a part of.''

About 80 people attended the event, she said.

''It was a fantastic night and the theme lent itself to some great costumes.''
