Have you ever wished that Revelstoke had a Casino? I am sure it would be a controversial issue if it were to be proposed. I will admit that having a full time gambling facility is not something we really need here, but one has to admit that a little bit of gambling can be pretty exciting once in a while. The thrills of the big win, dressing up like Bond for an evening out, and the challenge of beating the house at different table games.
Well, the Rotary Club of Revelstoke is happy to bring our Annual Casino Night to town. On Saturday, May 3, come out to an evening of dinner and excitement.
Here is how the evening will roll out:
If you want the full gala experience, dinner will be catered by La Baguette and your $50 ticket includes a delicious meal, one drink and $20 worth of gambling chips. Dinner starts at 6 p.m.
If you are just looking for a casino night, cruise by after the dinner is over at 7:30 p.m. and $20 buys you entry, one drink and $10 worth of gambling chips.
If Texas Hold’em is your game, there is a Hold’em tournament with the grand prize of a trip for two to Las Vegas. John Kehler’s not playing, so there’s a chance someone else might actually win. Buy in before the evening, and your $100 buy-in includes the regular admission to the casino with chips.
Of course the big question is what can you win? Check out these amazing prizes:
– Trip to Las Vegas (Rotary)
– 43″ plasma TV (City Furniture)
– Recliner chair (City Furniture)
– A year’s worth of wine (Rotary)
– Heli ski day (Eagle Pass)
– Adult season pass (RMR)
– New ski’s, bindings and jacket (Skookum Cycle and Ski)
– White water rafting trip (Apex Rafting)
– Paragliding trip (Revelstoke Paragliding)
– Sky Trek Adventure pass (Sky Trek Adventure Park)
And much, much more.
So come out, have a fantastic meal, support a great cause and test your luck at the first annual Revelstoke Rotary Casino night.
This is going to be a very exciting night and all the proceeds go towards a new playground for the kids in Kovach Park. Tickets are available at Universal Footwear.
