Dust off your high heels ladies and straighten your bow ties men…It’s Casino Royale time at the Prime in support of GP Vanier Girls Basketball!
COURTENAY, B.C (March 28 2013) Comox Valley Athletic Association Founder, Peter Parke, posing
as 007 James Bond …brushes off his tux and straightens his bow tie just in time for his next big
fundraiser at the Prime Chop House and Wine Bar being held next Thursday, March 28 th 5:00 – 12
pm all in support of GP Vanier Girls Basketball.
It’s been a long two months since the Comox Valley Athletic Association hosted its first highly successful
fundraiser at the Prime restaurant. With much anticipation, patrons will be pleased to know the next
event is just around the corner and the CVAA invites you, your family and friends to head on down
for the evening of the 28th. To change things up we have introduced a Casino Royale theme for the
evening. Let your inner Bond out and come dressed as James Bond himself or one of his fine lady
friends for your chance to win a grand prize.
Enjoy a Prime Burger or a Pasta dish and your choice of a glass of wine or beer – all for $20.00 with
$5.00 going back to the team. The evening will be packed full of entertainment and activities. Black
Jack, Roulette, and Poker, as well as a basketball shoot out, door prizes, silent and live auction , 50:50
ticket sales, a meat draw and live entertainment by local artist Dez Larson.
Peter Parke, visionary thinker and founder of the CVAA, is moving full speed ahead to bring
opportunities to the local athletes of our community through fundraising activities such as these.
“There is nothing better than coming together as a community to work for something greater than our
individual self”. “ It ‘s not just about the fundraising as much as it is about gathering with family and
friends - old and new- to enjoy an evening of delicious food, and great entertainment, while supporting
such a worthy cause. “It really is a win - win for all involved.” “When reaching out and helping one
another we build stronger and happier relationships and in turn better communities and who doesn’t
want that in their back yard?”.
On behalf of the CVAA we invite everyone jump start their spring break by heading over to the Prime
on Thursday, March 28 after 5:00pm to join us for an evening of fun. Arrive early and stay late as it is
sure to be a winner of a night – we look forward to seeing you there! A courtesy shuttle will be available
from 8 – 12 pm.
