Students host casino night

Four North Island College tourism students are hosting a Vegas-themed Casino Night to fundraise for a field trip in the winter semester.

It will take place this Saturday from 8 to 11 p.m. at the Comox Lions Den at 1729 Comox Ave.

The evening will include casino games, a silent auction, dancing, snacks and a photo booth. Guests will be given an envelope of funny money to play the casino games upon arrival. This money will later be used in the silent auction.

Local businesses have donated a variety of items for the auction. Each ticket will also be entered to win a door prize at the end of the night.

All money raised goes towards a student field trip in which they will learn the ins and outs of the tourism industry.

Tickets are $15 for students and $20 for adults. They can be purchased at Laughing Oyster Bookshop or by calling 250-650-3563.
