Rotary Mardi Gras Casino Night — great fun for a great purpose

Have you purchased your tickets for the special Valentine’s Rotary Mardi Gras Casino Night celebration on Saturday night?

You won’t want to miss the fun and excitement!

There will be live music from members of The Americana Project along with a DJ spinning hits. A magician will also be on hand to show you a few tricks.

There will be plenty of fabulous food, and desserts to die for. A cash bar will feature amazing Hurricanes and ice cream topped with liqueur.

The highlight of the evening will be games of chance including blackjack, poker, Texas Hold ’em and craps.

Bid on a variety of silent auction items donated in support of this huge community fund-raising event. You can peruse the selection of dining opportunities, self-indulgent spa services, stays at romantic lodging locations and other items that are being added every day. There will be a live auction for a Navajo Lake dinner cruise, Broncos tickets, a Creede get-away, Pagosa Folk ‘N Bluegrass three-day passes and more.

You could not ask for a more special Valentine’s event.

You can be a part of the most important fund-raising event of the year for the many worthwhile and important contributions that Rotary makes to this community.

Tickets are $45 per person and they are available from Rotarians, at The Sun office, and Exit Realty at 2383 Eagle Drive, or by calling Shellie Peterson at 264-2014. Tickets will also be available at the door.

The date is Feb. 11, the time is from 6 to 10 p.m., the location is the Pagosa Lakes Clubhouse at 230 Port Ave.
