An evening in Monte Carlo

Submitted By Rick La Plante

Gamblers will be using funny money, but for a serious cause, when the New Haven Schools Foundation hosts "An Evening in Monte Carlo" to raise funds to continue to help students in the New Haven Unified School District.

Black Jack, Texas Hold 'em, craps and roulette - with guests competing for prizes - will be just part of the fun Saturday, February 4, when the Union City Sports Center will be transformed into a luxurious casino and resort.

Guests will be "stacking the deck for education," as they take on Lady Luck with $1,000 in casino chips and a chance to compete for prizes.

The evening also will include a gourmet buffet dinner, catered by Federicos of Union City. The menu features a variety of appetizers, spinach salad, a choice of entrŽe (pasta primavera, chicken puttanesca or grilled New York steak medallions) and a chocolate heart filled with raspberry sorbet for dessert. There also will be an espresso cart, hosted by Too Much Fun Club, Inc.

Premium beer from Gordon Biersch and champagne from J Vineyards will be served. The wine selection will include Aquinas chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir, Decoy cabernet, and Acacia chardonnay. A selection of specialty cocktails will also be available.

Tickets are priced at $100, half of which is tax-deductible. Attire will be semi-formal and guests must be 21 or older to attend.

Auction and giveaway items include two round-trip tickets to Hawaii, a three-day/two night stay at a Tahoe/Truckee cabin, other local destination getaways, a 42-inch flat-screen television, a luxury box for 20 people at an Oakland A's game, and bottles of fine wine. A preview of auction and raffle items will be available at after January 2, 2012.

Tickets to the event will make for a great holiday gift. To receive an invitation, call (510) 471-3850 or email
