Casino Night postponed to March 1, tickets still available

Tickets are still available for the 2019 Pirate Casino Night, Peninsula College Athletics’ annual, signature fund-raising event for athletic scholarships.

Pirate Casino Night, featuring a buffet dinner, silent auction, live auction, a student athlete speaker, games, and entertainment, is set for 5:30 pm, March 1, at 7 Cedars Casino.

“This is the one night that our community can really make a difference in the lives of our student athletes,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. “We’ve won 10 Northwest Athletic Conference Championships and 18 league titles since 2010, in addition to being among the conference leaders in all-academic awards and community service participation. One of the key components for our success is the financial support we get from our community. The generosity we receive from this small community is enormous. Pirate Casino Night director Donald Rollman and his advisory committee have put together another great event that I truly hope our fans will support again this year.”

Last year’s event raised about $40,000 toward scholarships and the College is on target to reach that number again this year. The event has sold out the Past two years and Ross recommends reserving seats early.

Jerry Allen and his staff at 7 Cedars will roll out the red carpet in Club 7, where the evening’s events will be followed by music and dancing to the band Mr. Pink.<--break->

“Every year I’m astonished at the generosity 7 Cedars Casino continues to show us, and their commitment to supporting our student athletes,” Ross said.

Tickets sell for $90 each or $720 for a table of eight. For more information or to reserve your seat, contact Donald Rollman at drollman@pencol.edu.
