The third-year students in the FSU/Asolo Conservatory are placing a bet on raising some money on a special Casino Night Event Feb. 18.
The students are raising money for their New York Showcase, an audition of sorts for casting directors and agents. They are hosting an evening of dinner and games, beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the mezzanine lobby of the FSU Center for the Performing Arts, 5555 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
The evening includes No-Limit World Series of Poker style Texas Hold 'Em, a Las Vegas-style buffet and a beer and wine bar. Donations for admission earn players a chance to win prizes. There also will be instructions on playing the game for those with no experience. The games begin at 8:30 p.m.
The students are getting some support from The Ringling College Feature Film Project, Asolo Rep, Gordon's Gourmet, and Gold Coast Eagle Distributing.
The suggestion donation is $80 to play and $60 to attend. For reservations contact email@example.com or (301) 580-1821.
