Soroptimist International of Oakdale hosted its annual Motor Madness fundraiser on Saturday, March 25 at the Gene Bianchi Community Center. Over 250 guests enjoyed a delicious variety of hors d’oeuvres and desserts as well as beer and wine tasting. Don Light of Oakdale won the Grand Door Prize and will select from either a new Harley Davidson motorcycle or $10,000 cash.
This year’s theme was “Disco.” Oakdale resident and professional entertainer Rob Ely served as the emcee and performed popular disco era songs throughout the evening. Debbie Carreira was selected as Best Dressed Disco Queen and Tom Phillips and Mike Swenson tied as Best Dressed Disco Dudes.
