The War Memorial Building had the look of a Las Vegas casino Saturday night as many rolled the dice and played a variety of card games during the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses Committee’s 10th annual Spring Fling event.
For a $40 donation, guests were treated to dinner and provided start-up chips for a chance to win while playing craps, blackjack, roulette and more.
A special poker tournament with a $100 buy-in, giving participants $1,000 in chips, two drinks and hors d’oeuvres and beverages was won by Helga Weidekat, who received a $500 gift card.
With a price tag of approximately $85,000 for materials and flowers to decorate the float, the South Pasadena Tournament of Roses Committee holds several fundraisers throughout the year.
