Casino fundraiser shaken, not stirred

The Canadian College of Performing Arts will present a special evening of food, music, fun-filled games of chance

The Canadian College of Performing Arts will present a special evening of food, music, fun-filled games of chance, prizes and auctions Feb. 10.

“This event has become a Victoria mainstay attraction,” said Heather Roberts, Casino Royale Committee Chair. “We always sell out this event; and being recognized as Victoria’s Favourite Artsy Fundraiser in last year’s Monday Magazine M Awards helps with the prestige.

The centerpiece will be the performances by young artists from across the country, who train at the Canadian College of Performing Arts. Guests are encouraged to attend wearing their most playful tuxes or gowns.

The environment will allow guests to imagine they are in Montenegro, the location used in Casino Royale the 2006 James Bond movie.

The evening will also include hors-d’oeuvres by the host and event sponsor Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour.

All proceeds go toward training students of the college, some of the top young performing artists in the country. CCPA will be ending its 14th season with performances with the Victoria Symphony at the end of March and a full production of Footloose at the McPherson Playhouse in April.

The event takes place at The Victoria Marriott Inner Harbour, Feb. 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $65 (partial tax receipt), on sale through the CCPA office, 250-595-9970.
