Island Academy Vegas Extravaganza!!

The Island Academy invited card players (over 18) to a night of “Bet$ for Text$,” at Pedro’s Inn. “Education is a Big Deal,” was the theme for a night of Bingo, Blackjack, and ‘Belize’ Hold ‘Em. Teachers were the featured Belize Bingo callers and professional dealers ran the table games of Blackjack, and ‘Belize’ Hold ‘Em. Raffle drawings and prizes were given throughout the night. Generous sponsors donated many exciting gift packages, and added excitement while supporting The Island Academy’s 2009-10 school year drive for new textbooks and workbooks.
