June 8, 2016 (El Cajon) -- The El Cajon Valley Host Lions Club will combine their fund raising efforts again this year with the Winchester Widows who will help them present their 6th annual Casino Night on June 18th at 6 p.m. in the Pacific Southwest Service Center at 1150 Broadway El Cajon. 

You’re invited to a night of gambling and carousing in an Old West saloon complete with “Western Music," complimentary food and drink, plus The Winchester Widows to help keep you cowpokes under control.

“Gunsmoke VI,” as it’s known locally, will feature all the different gaming tables you enjoy plus a silent auction and a 50/50 drawing. The final chip winners will have a choice of prizes in a Chinese raffle, including two tickets to the All Star game at Petco Park, a Beach Cruiser bike including a Cannon Camera Bundle plus a Microsoft Fire HD 10 Surface Tablet or a DJL Phantom 3 Standard Quadcopter Drone with 2.7 video camera.

Entry tickets are $50 each. Sponsorships are available starting at $100 for Bronze, which includes one ticket then to Silver for $250 and 2 tickets. The next step up is to Gold for $500 and 4 tickets and finally Platinum for $1000 and 6 tickets. They also need Silent Auction gifts or gift certificates. Included in the ticket price are $200 in gambling chips, free heavy hors d’oeuvres and complimentary beer or wine. 

Proceeds will be used by the Lions Club to fund their Student eye glass program that provides free eye tests to needy students in the East County and free glasses if they need them.  The Widows support Challenge Ranch, which is a 10 acre ranch in Dehesa Valley that provides opportunities for under-privileged children through horse back riding.
