Alta Sierra Elementary will host its second annual casino night and auction Saturday at the Alta Sierra Country Club. The event, which brings teachers, parents and the community together for an evening of fun, is the school’s largest fundraiser.
Tickets for the event cost $25 per person or $45 per couple ($30 and $50 at the door) and include appetizers, desserts, and gaming chips. Auction items include overnight getaways to Reno and San Francisco, tickets to Sonoma Raceway, Sacramento Rivercats, private wine tastings in Napa, and numerous goods, services and gift certificates from local businesses. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and childcare will be available with advance reservation.
Funds raised Saturday will pay for field trips, assemblies, classroom equipment and supplies, art classes, library services, and student incentive programs for nearly 300 students.
