The Rotary Club of Saipan is looking for volunteers to man their Blackjack, roulette, Texas hold ‘em, and craps tables for their upcoming 2013 Las Vegas Night fundraiser.
“We need amateur dealers so if you know anyone who loves to play or knows how to play Blackjack and roulette, tell them we need them. Also, we need dealers for Texas hold ‘em. We need as many dealers as possible because the feedback from last year was there were not enough dealers to rotate. We already have one volunteer for the craps table but Mike White has asked for three helpers to help him at the craps table,” said Rotary president Laila Y. Boyer during the club’s weekly meeting Tuesday at the Hyatt Regency Saipan.
The Rotary president also took the opportunity to thank Saipan Stevedore for storing the game tables for Las Vegas Night at the company’s air-conditioned rooms all these years. Saipan Stevedore has also agreed to help deliver the tables and help set up everything, she said.
Boyer told members that the Rotary Club is still looking for volunteers to label poker chips for Texas hold ‘em. “Members can take chips home and label them while watching TV and the like.” She said interested members could contact Rotary Club vice president Richard Cody, who has the poker chips.
Meanwhile, McDonald’s Saipan general manager Marcia Ayuyu is in the lead for the member with the most ticket sales. She is thus in line to winning a roundtrip ticket to either the Rotary Club district meeting in Tokyo, Japan, or the Rotary Club international meeting in Brisbane, Australia, later this year.
The Rotary Club of Saipan will host the 2013 Las Vegas Night on Oct. 26 at the Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan. Since it will be held a few days before Oct. 31, the club has decided to adopt a Halloween theme this year.
Tickets for the event can be picked up at the Marianas Variety office in Garapan. There will also be ticket sales drives at the Thursday Market at the Garapan Fishing Base and the Joeten Superstore in San Jose every Saturday.
Aside from all-time favorites Blackjack, Texas hold ’em, roulette, and the craps table, the 2013 edition of the event will also see the return of bingo, hosted by former Rotary Club president Ben Babauta.
When the clock strikes midnight on Oct. 26, the Rotary Club will draw the grand prize: a choice of either a 2014 Toyota Yaris, sponsored by Microl Toyota, or $10,000 in cash.
