THE Rotary Club of Saipan will hold its annual fundraising event, â€œLas Vegas Night,â€� on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019.
Club president Greg Borja said the eventâ€™s date, originally set for Nov. 17, 2018, was pushed back because Saipan was at the height of post-typhoon recovery efforts.
But the rescheduled event is still within the Rotary calendar year which starts from July 1 and ends on June 31, he added.
Borja said they have not yet selected a venue. It was supposed to be held at Saipan World Resort but the hotel is still undergoing renovation after it was damaged by Typhoon Yutu.
Borja said Fiesta Resort is an option.
Once they have decided on a venue, he said they will begin selling tickets for $20 per booklet.
The grand prize is a brand new 2019 Mazda or $10,000 cash.
Also at stake are cash prizes: $3,000, $2,000, $1,000 and $500.
Moreover, there will be door prizes.
Borja said they are also planning to hold a separate Texas hold â€˜em competition in May as requested by some of the participants in the 2017 Las Vegas Night.
