Casino Royal, Las Amigas style!

San Felipe - In February on lucky Friday the 13th, Club “Las Amigas” held the annual “Casino Day” in The Lodge at Campo Ocotillo. There were plenty of games to entertain even the most sophisticated gambler. A real Crap table and Roulette wheel. Bingo for the faint at heart and seven (7) Black Jack tables and two (2) ‘Texas Hold’em” tables. The winning chips were then used for the live auction of many donated items.

Thanks to Kuchi and her local girlfriends for serving up lunch of tamalies and burritos. The proceeds, as always, go to further the education of the children of San Felipe.
