James Bond fundraiser supports MCS

The second annual event will be held at the Mission Best Western Nov. 2

Mission Community Services is hosting the second annual James Bond Casino Night fundraiser Nov. 2 at the Best Western.

The event will begin at 7 and run until 11 p.m. with eight professional gaming tables, a buffet, two live comedy shows with comics from Stand up for Mental Health, prizes and games.

Some of the prizes donated so far include a trip for two to Las Vegas provided by Pioneer Chrysler Jeep, jewelry valued at $1,000 from Lanka Jewels, sports and theatre tickets, and more.

MCS has been serving the needs of the residents of Mission for 40 years beginning in 1972 with programs like Meals on Wheels, the MCS Christmas Bureau, and Emergency Transportation.

MCS relies on support from government, community grants, donations, and fundraising to be able to fund its programs and to ensure that the services it provides to Mission residents are secure and sustainable. The MCS Food Centre, Christmas Bureau, and Seniors Connection including Meals on Wheels rely solely on support from the community through donations, sponsorships, and fundraising.

Tickets are $75 and $100 each and give $1,000 and $1,500 worth of gaming chips respectively to be used for fun at the gaming tables. Tickets are available at the office (33179 Second Ave.), or by calling 604-814-3941.
