The Charity Poker Tournament and Casino Night is held at the world-famous Nautilus Room within the Coronado Recreation Center, with an open bar and light finger foods.

Additionally this year, black jack, roulette and craps tables will be offered, with raffle drawings for table game participants.

“After a successful first run last year, The Islander Sports Foundation is proud to again partner with the Coronado Lacrosse Club on this great event,” says ISF Vice President Brian Dozier. “We look forward to another fun filled evening that supports local High School, Middle School, and Youth sports. We can’t do this without your generous support, so please come out on November 2.”

“I am very excited to partner with the Islander Sports Foundation for a second year in support of Coronado youth sport,” says Jim Fabiszak. “As a former lacrosse player, current coach and President of the CLC Board, these events make you proud to be part of something special. I personally look forward to seeing everyone at the event!”
