Take a gamble for Kus-kus-sum

Join Project Watershed and LIFT for Festive Cheer, Thursday, Nov. 21 at Match Eatery and Chances Casino.

This will be a night to remember with a goal to beat last year’s fundraising total of $25,000. A Secret Santa will match funds raised that night. Chances is giving everyone $10 of free play in the casino — so if you win big remember any donation to Kus-kus-sum will be matched and you will get a tax receipt or sponsorship receipt.

Tickets are $45 for non-LIFT members, $25 for LIFT members and $20 for LIFT guests. Tickets include $10 free play in the casino, a glass of bubbly upon arrival, a Safe Ride home with Ambassador and tunes by DJ Chickweed.

Project Watershed hopes to purchase and restore the cement area beside the 17th Street Bridge to natural habitat. The restored area, dubbed Kus-kus-sum, will provide fish and wildlife habitat, help mitigate climate change, buffer against sea level rise, attenuate localized flooding, become a culturally significant landmark, and provide educational and recreational opportunities.
