Fundraiser for G.P. Vanier girls basketball on Thursday

CVAA hosting Casino Royale-themed event at the Prime Chop House

 

 

 

Bring out your inner James Bond 007 and join the Comox Valley Athletic Association’s next big fundraising event – Casino Royale  being held at the Prime Chop House  and Wine Bar on Thursday, March 28 from 5-12 p.m. in support of G.P. Vanier girls basketball.

It’s been a long two months since the CVAA hosted its first highly successful fundraiser at the Prime restaurant.  With much anticipation,  patrons will be pleased to know the next event is just around the corner.

To change things up we have introduced a Casino Royale theme for the evening.  Come dressed as James Bond himself or one of his fine lady friends for your chance to win a grand prize. Enjoy a Prime burger or a pasta dish and your choice of a glass of wine or beer – all for $20 with $5 going back to the team.

The evening will be packed full of entertainment and activities – blackjack, roulette and poker as well as a basketball shoot out, door prizes, silent and live auction, 50/50 ticket sales, a meat draw and  live entertainment by local artist Dez Larson.

CVAA founder Peter Parke is moving full speed ahead to bring opportunities to local athletes through fundraising activities such as these. “There is nothing better than coming together as a community to work for something greater than our individual self,” Parke said.

“It’s not just about the fundraising as much as it is about gathering with family  and friends – old and new – to enjoy an evening of delicious food, and  great entertainment, while supporting such a worthy cause. It really is a win-win for all involved. When reaching out and helping one another we build stronger and happier relationships and in turn better communities, and who doesn’t want that in their backyard?”

The CVAA invites everyone to jump start their spring break by heading to the Prime on Thursday, March 28 after 5 p.m. for an evening of fun. Arrive early and stay late as it is sure to be a winner of a night. A  courtesy shuttle will be available from 8-12 p.m.
