Vista, California, September 26, 2018—Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland’s “Night at the Museum” Casino Night fundraiser at the Vista Historical Museum in Vista on September 15th drew about 100 guests and raised about $5,000 for the club’s service fund to help women and girls. The $65 per plate event featured a variety of casino games as well as an optional Texas Hold’em Tournament and a Mexican-style buffet. Club President Assly Sayyar said “I want to give a special Soroptimist shoutout to our community sponsors and donors including: Paul Campo, Esq., Cosmic Solar, Essential Spa, Mother Earth Brew Co., Maurice Car’rie Vineyard & Winery, Palomar Mountain Spring Water, Twisted Horn Mead & Cider, Latitude 33 Brewing Company, Paul Eckert and Judy and Vic Gregorie, among others. You have our gratitude for supporting our mission of helping women and girls right here in our community…. The money we raised will go towards our Dream programs and our ongoing fight against human trafficking,” she said.

The first place winner of the Texas Hold’em tournament went home with a 43-inch flat screen Smart TV and the winner of the overall games got an Apple Watch. Various other substantial prizes were offered for second and third place winners. A “Money Hat” worth $265 was raffled off, and one lucky winner got the Door Prize, a gift basket from Twisted Horn Mead & Cider. The club is already making plans for next year’s event, tentatively scheduled for September 28. Companies or individuals interested in being a Table Sponsor next year or donating gift items should contact the club at soroptimistinternationalvista@gmail.com.
