CLC & ISF Seeking Donations, Sponsors, and Participants for 3rd Annual Charity Casino Night & Luau Lounge on November 1

Coronado Lacrosse Club (CLC) and Islander Sports Foundation (ISF) are co-hosting the 3rd Annual Charity Casino Night & Luau Lounge on Friday, November 1, 2019, and are seeking sponsors, donations, and participants for this event. Proceeds benefit girls youth lacrosse, and Coronado’s middle and high school sports teams.

The Charity Casino Night & Luau Lounge is held in the Nautilus Room within the Coronado Recreation Center, with an open bar and light finger foods. Players of all abilities come together to play Texas hold ‘em style poker, with prizes awarded to the top 10 poker players. Additionally offered are black jack, roulette and craps tables, with raffle drawings for table game participants. New this year is the luau lounge with drinks, snacks and live music for those who prefer to support our local sports programs without participating in casino games.

“I am very excited to partner with ISF for a third 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! With the success of the additional table games last year, we decided to add a luau lounge that will appeal to spouses, friends, and supporters who want to just hang out.”

ISF/CLC (both non-profit groups) are seeking table sponsors at the $100, $300, and $500 levels. All table sponsors receive a shout out and are listed on the rolling screen during the event. $300 and $500 level table sponsors have their logo displayed at their sponsored poker table, and $500 table sponsors receive two tickets to the event, and website recognition for the entire year.

The group also welcomes monetary and gift card donations in any amount, as well as prizes. Those interested please text CLC Treasurer Jennifer Hershman at 619-781-2886.

Doors open at 5pm on November 1, with table action from 6-10pm. The purchase of a ticket allows participation in EITHER the poker tournament OR the other casino games and luau lounge. Those who don’t know how to play or want to improve their poker skills can join a free lesson beginning at 5:30pm.

Re-buys are open for both poker and the casino games until 8pm, and are always encouraged. Tickets are $125, with $25 off for military with registration code PATRIOT.
