BC Ag event: beef, beer, and bets

Darlene Mangrum, Reporter

The 2nd annual “Beef, Beer, & Bets” fundraiser for the Agriculture Department at BC is back. Last year the department wanted to have a fun event with a western theme that would help raise money for the Agriculture Department so they chose steak, beer, and poker. This time the fundraiser is offering even more casino games.

This year the Agriculture Dept. is hosting a night of steak dinners, beer, and casino games, amongst these games is a Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, and a Silent Auction with plenty of prizes for the winners. Players must be over 18 to play the games.

The proceeds from the fundraiser go to BC’s Agriculture scholarship funds and leadership programs. The dept. is hoping to sell at least 250 tickets.

The event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 22 at the Bakersfield Ag Pavilion, at 3300 East Belle Terrace. The dinner starts at 6:00 p.m. and the games start at 7:00 p.m. The cost is $30.00 for the steak dinner, $30.00 for the poker/games buy in or $50.00 for both the dinner and the games.
