The Scoop: Odyssey's Casino Night

Come support Odyssey Charter School at their annual Casino Night Fundraiser -- where everyone's a winner.

If you like to have Vegas fun, you don’t have to drive all the way there.  On Saturday, March 24th, 2012 from 5:00pm to 9:30pm, Mijares Mexican Restaurant in Pasadena will be turned into a lively casino in order to help Odyssey Charter School reduce their budget gap.

A $40 guest ticket includes $200 in gambling chips, an opportunity drawing ticket, appetizers, two beverages (beer, wine, or soft drinks), and musical entertainment by a Guitar Trio.  All proceeds benefit Odyssey Charter School, right here in Altadena.  Check Odyssey’s website to see photos of gift baskets, purchase tickets, and for more information:  www.odysseycharterschool.org/casino.cfm
