Soroptimist of Artesia‐Cerritos will host their 21st annual Monte Carlo night next month.
This year’s theme is “Le Cirque~Just Imagine.” The festivities will be held for the second year at the Portuguese D.E.S. Hall in Artesia on March 2, 2013.
Event tickets are only $65.00 per person and include a catered dinner by Turnip Rose, raffle prizes, gaming prizes and casino‐style gaming.
“Guests will be whisked into the world of Cirque de Soleil, where they will be invited to stir up their imaginations” said club Chairman Pat Law. “Our guests always say that Soroptimists put on a great party, and this year they’ll love the beautiful decorations, delicious food and casino style gambling. We will also have our third annual Texas Hold’em poker tournament with some great prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place winners. Some of the great prizes this year include:
- A trip for two in the Goodyear Blimp – priceless
- 2 night stay at Hotel Le Bristol, Paris, France, worth $3185
- 2 night stay at Embassy Suites Phoenix Biltmore, worth $500
- MAC Cosmetics, worth $500
Though Soroptimists raise money all year long, Monte Carlo is their major fundraiser. All proceeds from the event will support local charities including Su Casa (a shelter for battered women and children) and Family Guidance Center (which offers counseling for abused children and families). A portion of the proceeds will also fund our scholarships to help women and children in our community.
“Our neighbors need your help even more during these rough recessionary times, as local families undergo additional stress due to economic worries,” said President Christina Alosi. “We need more support from the community, and we need it more than ever. People can support the event in a number of ways including sponsoring a portion of the event, donating raffle prizes and buying tickets for the raffle and/or the event.”
“Sponsorships range from $100.00 to $5,000.00 and all sponsors have signage at the event,” Christina explained. “As for donations, all items, whether large or small, are greatly appreciated. In the past, local businesses and community people have very generously donated gift cards, gift certificates, hotel stays, electronic goods, and even their professional services. As always, the success of the Monte Carlo Night is dependent on the generosity of the local community, and they have never let us down.”
