Casino for a cause

People who want to hit the casino for a good cause can attend The Evening in Monte Carlo on Saturday at the Capri Centre. The Rotary Club of Red Deer Sunrise is hosting the sixth annual fundraiser, which includes a silent auction, fun money casino, champagne reception and gourmet dinner. Proceeds are being donated to Family Services of Central Alberta. Tickets are $150 each (eligible for a $100 tax receipt). For more information, call Ajoy at 403-346-9333 or Rob at 403-348-5808 or go to www.eveninginmontecarlo.com


Celebrity slo-pitch

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Red Deer will take on local radio celebrities in a slo-pitch game to spread the word that more mentors are needed for the program that helps youngsters in the community. Mayor Morris Flewwelling will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Sunday game set for 1 p.m. in Great Chief Park. Red Deer Advocate publisher Fred Gorman will umpire the event. About 30 youths are waiting to be matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister and there are many other youngsters in schools who need the support of individuals in the community, said challenge organizer Janessa McCormack. The organization’s goal is to have 50 new mentors by the end of the year. Admission to the slo-pitch game is free. Proceeds from the concession stand will go to the United Way’s One in Three Campaign. For information, call McCormack at 403-342-6500 or email her at janessa@yvc.ca
