Saddle up for a wild night of fundraising and fun
Paso Robles Youth Sports Council Wild West Casino Night & Barbeque Dinner Fundraiser takes place Saturday, April 5 at Centennial Park
Grab your cowboy boots and head on over to the Centennial Park gymnasium on Saturday night as the Paso Robles Youth Sports Council holds its 9th Annual Wild West Casino Night & Barbecue Dinner Fundraiser on April 5 beginning at 6 p.m.
“This annual event benefits many of our local youth athlete programs,” said Marc Dart, a spokesperson for PRYSC. “In addition, it is just a lot of fun – it’s a guaranteed good time.”
Ticket holders will enjoy a tri-tip dinner, two drink tickets, entry into the casino and chips for gambling. After dinner, PRYSC will rustle up some fun with raffles, a silent auction, casino games, music and an all-around good time. Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to “arrest” their friends and have them taken to a makeshift jail, the Hoosegow, where they’ll remain until their “bail” is raised – all funds benefit the PRYSC.
“People have a lot of fun with the Hoosegow,” said Dart, “and we also have amnesty cards for sale to keep you from being thrown behind bars.”
Local businesses and individuals have donated items towards the silent auction and raffle; others have sponsored tables and provided financial support. Major sponsors of the event include KPRL radio, Paso Robles Waste & Recycle, and MMC Lending. The barbeque dinner will be prepared by the Bearcat Boosters and served by Bearcat athletes.
This annual adult-only event serves three purposes: To thank the patrons and volunteers who help throughout the year with various youth sports needs; to raise needed funds to support youth sports in the community, and to raise public awareness and increase public relations within the Paso Robles area.
“Proceeds help provide much-needed funds for the maintenance and improvement of existing youth fields and facilities in Paso Robles and also go towards building additional fields,” said Dart. “Our group fills a real need for the youth in our city. We can leverage the funds we raise and, with all of our volunteers, a wealth of skills and additional donations, we are able to help our youth.”
Purchase tickets at $45 each prior to the event by calling (805) 227-0155 or online at www.PRYSC.org. Tickets will be available at the door for $50. Adults only please.
