Poker fundraiser to sup­port kindy

Central Queensland News - - LIFE - Kris­ten Booth Kris­

BRUSH up on your poker skills be­cause the casino is com­ing to town.

The Shed Soiree to­mor­row night presents The Real Deal Fun Casino, an event to raise much-needed funds for the up­grade of Bo­rilla Kinder­garten.

The kinder­garten is a com­mu­nity-based, not-for-profit, triple-unit kinder­garten af­fil­i­ated with gov­ern­ing body Lady Gowrie.

The ru­ral kinder­garten caters for more than 130 chil­dren from Emer­ald and sur­round­ing ar­eas, fo­cus­ing on early in­ter­ven­tion strate­gies to sup­port young chil­dren in their tran­si­tion to the school en­vi­ron­ment.

The kindy’s speech pathol­o­gist Car­men Connolly said funds from the casino night would go to­wards the on­go­ing de­vel­op­ment of the kinder­garten.

“The funds this year will be for a new deck,

un­der­cover area with out­door mu­si­cal in­stru­ments, in­cor­po­rat­ing a bush tucker gar­den and in­dige­nous mu­rals,” she said.

Run by a pro­fes­sional casino com­pany, guests get to in­dulge in a unique gam­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The night will con­sist of four hours of ac­cess to casino fun at the ta­bles, as well as live en­ter­tain­ment.

Food and drinks will be avail­able and a range of prizes up for grabs.

“This is un­like any­thing that Emer­ald has ex­pe­ri­enced and we are hop­ing to cre­ate a night that peo­ple of the Emer­ald com­mu­nity can en­joy,” Ms Connolly said.

“The Shed Soiree is Bo­rilla Kinder­garten’s only ma­jor fundraiser for the year.

“It will be a fun night for an awe­some cause.”

Tick­ets will pro­vide each guest with a drink on ar­rival, $200 worth of casino “fun” money, plat­ters, canapes, a main meal and desserts.
