The Rotary Club of Grass Valley recently held a super-fun event at the Foothills, “Rotary Royale Casino Night”! The theme of this year’s casino night was James Bond. Guests were encouraged to wear their favorite James Bond inspired costume for the chance to win the People’s Choice Award! People at casino night did not disappoint; tons of people arrived dressed to impress. We saw ladies with furs and sequins and guys with black suits and fedora hats.
Besides the casino games, there was also a silent auction with over 200 items, door prizes, a raffle, live music, a magician, and a live auction. James Bond movies were projected onto a wall to add to the event’s theme. And, there was a fun photo booth complete with a feather boa, huge playing cards, and dice. Cocktails at the bar were named after Bond movies, and delicious comfort food was catered. Proceeds from the night went towards programs for the youth and seniors of Nevada County.
“I went with a couple girlfriends, and we had a blast! We all love to get dolled up and dress in costume, and so the Bond theme was fun to find outfits for. And, one of our friends won a photography session gift certificate in the silent auction. I’d definitely recommend this Nevada County fundraiser to anyone who wants to give back while having a great time!” one of the guests shared with us.
The Foothills has plenty of space in our ballroom-size venue so your fundraiser can fit tons of people. And, we have a moveable thrust-style stage for rent, perfect for entertainment or live music. Take advantage of the Foothills Event Center’s local bar, which has a rich history in Nevada County.
