Alta Sierra Elementary School’s first casino night is this Saturday, February 23 at Alta Sierra Country Club. The event, which includes a live and silent auction,evolved from recent years’ wine tasting fundraisers to appeal to larger crowds.“We really wanted to make this a community gathering, as well as a 
fundraiser,” Katrina Paz, Alta Sierra Elementary parent teacher 
committee president, said. “This should be an evening of parents, friends and 
neighbors coming together for a night of fun while raising important 
funds for our school.”

Tickets for the event cost $25 per person/$45 per couple and include 
appetizers, desserts, and $500 in chips. Prizes include tickets to 
Disneyland, artwork and photography, tickets to Sonoma Raceway, rounds of golf at 
the Resort at Squaw Creek, private catering, spa services, overnight 
stays at Atlantis Casino Resort, Truckee’s Cedar House Sport Hotel and the Grand 
Sierra Resort, the opportunity for a student to be a reporter for a day 
at The Union, one free year of after-school care, packages from Wolf Mountain 
Day Spa, fly-fishing lessons, and various gift certificates to local 
shops and restaurants. The festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and childcare will be 
available with advance reservation.

Funds raised that evening will go towards upgrading the computer lab, as
well as field trips, assemblies, classroom equipment and supplies, art 
classes, library services, and music, sports, and recreational programs 
for more than 330 students.
