As times are tough for the Culver City Schools, but there’s no reason to sing the blues. The Culver City High School Booster Club will be raising money and raising your spirits with the best Saturday night you can find this side of the Nevada border. This coming Saturday evening, Feb. 26, from 6:30 pm to 11:30 pm, the Booster Club is hosting its annual Community Casino Night. Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium will be turned into the finest casino this side of Las Vegas.
The gala begins at 6:30 pm, and the cost is an amazingly low, $20.00 per person ($25.00 at the door). Each participant will receive $100.00 in chips. In addition to appetizers and an incredible dessert bar, there will be a no host bar (so bring some cash if you are feeling thirsty,) featuring alcohol generously donated by Mehaul O’Leary of Joxer’s Daly and Kevin Kunisaki of LaBrea Liquor. This event is, of course, limited to adults.
In addition to more than two dozen table games, there will be a silent auction featuring, among other things, Disneyland tickets, restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, and other activities. Live auction items include an autographed Kobe Bryant jersey, ballboy/ballgirl at an upcoming Clippers game, and dinner with the Culver City Fire Department.
Craig Ferre’, surf board maker extraordinaire, has donated a custom, hand-made, surf board to the Booster Club. Raffle tickets are $5.00 each, and the winner will be announced at the Casino Night. This custom board is yellow and white, with the Culver City Centaur logo prominently displayed.
In keeping with the theme of casino night, this year we will be raffling off ($5.00/ticket) an antique slot machine and hotel stays in Las Vegas and Laughlin.
The Culver City High School Booster Club helps to support student clubs, organizations, athletic teams and other extracurricular activities of Culver City High School through financial support and volunteerism.
