Bets for Texts

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Nothing like a good fundraiser party - music - gambling - great prizes and all you can eat Pizza were all definitly a big hit.

The tents outside transformed Pedro's into a magical party place where everyone enjoyed the sounds of Melodyman Escobar and Small World Band - jello shots - bingo - raffles - roulette . For the more serious gamblers there were inside tables to play blackjack and poker. The Island Academy Teachers did a great job making sure we all had raffle tickets - fresh bingo cards - jello shots and everyone who came out for the event looked fabulous all dolled up for Casino night.

WOW looks like it was a fun nite. Great to see people took the opportunity to 'dress up'. Everyone appears to be having a grand time.
Also glad to see the No Smoking sign.
BUT where is the picture of Ms Cindy in her red dress????/

Was loads of fun tq - the Chunkys were in party mode that night - had to get wee in for Chunk's birthday and before they left.
I figured it was a good opportunity to actually wear a dress ha ha.

I agree on no smoking Gail actually I think if Pedro could he would make bar non smoking but that just won't fly. Joe has pics of Miss Cindy on site
