Are you looking for an evening of fun, laughter, food and prizes?

Get your tickets early for the second annual Casino Royale charity gala to enjoy funny money casino games such as Blackjack or Roulette.

If that’s not your thing, how about Yahtzee, crib or dominoes? Door prizes and auctions will add to the fun.

It happens in the upper conference hall of the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay on Sept. 7 at 6:30 p.m.

This charity gala supports 4R’s Education Centre (Soc.), the non-profit group which has been providing one-on-one teaching to students since 1989.

Tickets are available in advance only from Benjamin Moore House of Color, Gone Hollywood Video, Planet Kids (both locations), Yummies & Gyros and the 4R’s office.

If you purchase them before Aug. 23, your name will be entered in a draw for an additional $500 of funny money! Groups of 10 or more can get a discounted rate through the office (581 McPhee).

For more information, phone 250-338-4890.
