Dancing with the Northern Neck Stars


The Northern Neck Rotary Club announces  plans for CAPINNÉ 2015-“Dancing with the Northern Neck Stars.  The event will be the 25th. in a series of successful annual fundraisers which enabled the Northern Neck Rotary Club to distribute over $570,000, through its Northern Neck Rotary Charitable Trust {a 501 (c)(3) organization} to programs and charities providing services to those in need in Lancaster and Northumberland counties.  In addition, 25-$1,000 scholarships have been awarded to graduating seniors from high schools in the two counties.  CAPINNÉ 2015 will be held at the Boys’ and Girls’ Club on North Main Street, Kilmarnock on July 18.

Iris Treakle, Chairperson of this year’s gala, reminds all that the name “CAPINNÉ”, while sounding French, was coined from the phrase stating the purpose of the event “Caring About People in the Northern ck”. 

Planned is an upscale social event comparable to the popular television program “Dancing with the Stars”, only better.  Our event will feature stars of the Northern Neck Treakle said.  A showcase of community leaders willing to give back to the community by sharing their talent on the dance floor will compete for prizes.  Each competing couple will represent one of the thirteen charities benefiting from the event and be sponsored by a community business. 

A panel of judges will offer opinions and judge each couple following their dance routine and the audience will also have an opportunity to vote for their favorite performance.  As in most television programs, there will be commercials.  Local businesses will be given the opportunity record a video “commercial” which will be played throughout the evening on the club’s “jumbotron”.  

A raffle will be held for a variety of valuable prizes at the close of the evening.  Door prizes will also be given to those in attendance.

Nina Thompson, Northern Neck Club President, said, “This will be the social highlight of the summer here in the Neck.” 

Food will be highlighted at CAPINNÉ 2015, as it has been in the past, featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres such items as Carved Steamship Roast, Mango Chutney Chicken, Provencal Pork Tenderloin, Smoked Salmon and many other sides and decadent desserts.  Catering by Windows on the Water at Yankee Point Marina plus a donation of the steamship roast by River Market of White Stone will provide some of the most scrumptious food of the season.

Treakle disclosed that over 90 of the 300 tickets, at $50 per person, to be available have already been subscribed, though official ticket sales will not open for another month.  Business and individual sponsorships as well as table reservations are also available.  To pre-order tickets, inquire about sponsorships or make table reservations contact any Northern Neck Rotary Club member or call 804-435-3553.
