Gala event celebrates Bond, supports Education Centre

Charity benefit for 4R’s Education Centre takes place Saturday at
the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

Are you a James Bond fan?

You will be shaken and stirred at Casino Royale — a gala event celebrating his 50 years!

This charity benefit for 4R’s Education Centre (Soc.) will take place this Saturday at 7 p.m. in the conference hall of the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

Local businesses and individuals are sponsoring casino-style game tables where you can play the night away with “funny money.” There will be trivia and silent and live auctions — the latter hosted by Colin Day, a local auctioneer who has worked all over Canada.

Tickets are $40 and include hors d’oeuvres and $500 of “funny money.” Semi-formal or theme dress is encouraged.

Tickets are by advance sale only and are available at Benjamin Moore House of Color on Fifth Street, Gone Hollywood Video on Guthrie, Planet Kids on Fifth Street and on Comox Avenue, Yummies and Gyros on Puntledge Road and from the 4R’s office on McPhee Avenue. This event is for adults only.

All proceeds benefit 4R’s, a 100-per-cent local non-profit charitable organization serving the children of the Comox Valley since 1989.
