The Covington News - - Local news - By Gabriel Khouli gkhouli@cov­news.com

Afros, dashikis and go-go boots will abound at 7 p. m., Satur­day at the Al­covy Road cam­pus of DeKalb Tech­ni­cal Col­lege, as Washington Street Com­mu­nity Cen­ter plays host to its sixth an­nual Casino Royale fundraiser.

The 70s themed-night is be­ing ti­tled “ Groovy Nights” and will fea­ture pro­fes­sional casino gam­ing ta­bles, en­ter­tain­ment, danc­ing, food and spir­its.

Casino night is one of the cen­ter’s key an­nual fundrais­ers. Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Bea Jack­son hopes to raise $ 40,000 to help pay for the va­ri­ety of arts, cul­ture, recre­ation and tu­tor­ing pro­grams the cen­ter of­fers.

Tick­ets are $ 50. You can be des­ig­nated as a spon­sor with a do­na­tion of $ 250 to $ 4,500.

A ticket in­cludes “ gam­ing” money and drink tick­ets. There will also be nu­mer­ous raf­fles for prizes, in­clud­ing sport event tick­ets and para­pher­na­lia and week­end stays at vacation desti­na­tions.

“ We rely on the en­tire com­mu­nity to sup­port casino night, and they do sup­port us in many ways,” Jack­son said Tues­day. “ We want to thank the in­di­vid­u­als, busi­nesses and churches for help­ing us con­tinue to run our pro­grams.”
