On Saturday evening, Feb. 26, the Pagosa Springs Rotary Club is betting on you.
Betting you will turn out to support a long list of projects that benefit our community.
Betting you like to have a lot of fun with your friends and neighbors at the same time.
This is the 11th Rotary Casino Night and the 11th time Rotary has made this bet and the club and community have never lost. Your $35 ticket is the best bet you will ever make because when the community wins, we all win.
Who doesn’t like to make an occasional bet?
“You Betcha” has become a popular phrase. We bet on ball games, horses, dogs, the stock market and golf. In “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” Mark Twain explained that people will bet on anything and everything. Why not bet on a sure thing like student scholarships, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Pagosa Outreach Connection, school supplies, the 9Health Fair and many more?
All of the planning and arrangements for Casino Night are coming together. Tickets can be purchased at The Pagosa Springs SUN, at Exit Realty or from any Rotary Club member. There will be a wide variety of delicious hors d’oeuvres and many tasty desserts. Beverages of all kinds have been acquired. The croupiers are being trained and the gaming wheels and tables are being prepared. Several dozen prizes and auction items have been contributed by local establishments and more are being added to the list every day. These contributed items include special dining experiences, luxury pampering sessions for your body and psyche, getaway lodging opportunities and a host of thoughtful items from local stores upon which you may bid. There will be a silent auction and a live auction, as well as a drawing for prizes.
The theme is Mardi Gras Ball Casino Night and it’s the place for all the high rollers to be and be seen. Black tie is the norm for Mardi Gras Ball, but in Pagosa, anything goes!
Every effort is being made to ensure that Mardi Gras Ball Casino Night will be a special occasion, both enjoyable and of great benefit to the community. Saturday, Feb. 26, is the date. The new Center for the Arts on Put Hill (formerly The Paint Connection) is the place, and 6 to 10 p.m. is the time.
Sounds like a really good time. See you there.
