Mardi Gras Theme Featured
For its 33rd annual Casino Night fundraiser, the Freedom Rotary Club is bringing New Orleans to the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds with a Mardi Gras-themed event on Saturday, March 18 from 6:30 — 10:30 p.m.
Attendees can try their hand at roulette, blackjack, craps and poker, enjoy a buffet of foods, live music by Brave Mystics, $100 in player chips and a no host bar. There will be a raffle, silent auction and tickets sold for a San Francisco Giants game the night of the event.
New this year will be the VIP Poker Tournament. Limited to the first 30 people, the $75 pass includes early entry to Casino Night with winner prizes.
“Freedom Rotary has the only game in town,” said Trina Coffman-Gomez of Freedom Rotary.
The cost for the evening will be $45 in advance and $55 at the door. Attendees must be 21 or older to attend. Proceeds benefit many local organizations, charities, schools and the Freedom Library. In addition to being a tax-deductible donation, the Casino Night is a great opportunity for you to promote your business. Become a Platinum, Gold, or Silver sponsor.
