Gamble, mingle with flappers and enjoy a gourmet meal at Orcas Center’s upcoming gala.

The 27th annual fundraiser is on Saturday, July 20 starting at 5 p.m. There will be a professionally run casino complete with black jack, poker, craps and roulette (the games will be for fun and prizes, not money) as well as hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and a live and silent auction.

Auction items include a one-week stay in Hawaii, a cruise on Holland America, five-night stay in Bali, local dinners and pieces from such artists as Carl Buttke, Heidi Klippert Lindberg, Josie Barrow, Frank Loudin and Sallie Bell.

Dinner will be prepared by renowned island chef Christina Orchid. The menu is a surprise, but she has promised that champagne and caviar will be in full supply.

Following the dinner and live auction, the San Juan Jazz Quintet will perform music perfect for dancing. Tickets are $150 per person at www.orcascenter.org.
