Casino Night and auction benefits Service Center

Ante Up for Families "Ante Up for Families," a fundraiser for the Multi-Service Centers of North and East King County, will be held May 31, from 6:30 to 11 p.m., at the Hollywood Schoolhouse in Woodinville.
   Proceeds will benefit low-income clients who seek emergency food, shelter, and other services from the organization.
   The event will feature silent and live auctions and Las Vegas-style games of blackjack, roulette, wheel of fortune, and craps, and a catered hors-d'oeuvres buffet. Redhook Ale and Northwest wines will be served.

   Other items include the chance to be a fighter pilot in an attack fighter aircraft; a father-and-son night at a Mariners game, with a pregame locker room tour; a visit to the 1996 Seattle Seahawks' training camp for lunch and to watch an afternoon of practice; a week in Palm Desert, California, with airfare and a rental car; and a weekend's use of a Mazda Miata and $50 for dinner.
