For those of you whom attended our 2nd Annual Casino night this past Saturday, I hope you all had a great time. We had a FULL HOUSE and it’s been nice hearing all of the great feedback on that event. I have been doing Casino Night events for the past 15+ years and they are always a huge hit! It’s nice to see the whole community interacting in such a FUN way 🙂 Here are some other great events we have coming up:
Friday, Feburary 26th Cocktail Party from 5:30-7:30PM Stop by and meet your neighbors at the monthly Cocktail Night! Bring an appetizer or dessert to share. BYOB, soft drinks will be provided. Entry is FREE. RSVP by Wednesday, February 24th. Live music from Stacey Knights. lease remember, this is a BYOB event. If you do not bring your own wine, please do not drink others. As always, soda and water is supplied courtesy of your HOA.
Saturday, March 5th Community Trip to Key West on the Key West Express from Marco Island We still need (6) more people to commit to this day trip so we can get the group rate! The other (9) people who previously committed, really want to go so join the group by signing up! I was incorrect on information I sent out earlier regarding this trip. The group rate is $100 per person pending we have a group of 15 people. If you were to have an emergency or get sick and could not make it on the 5th, you would still be able to use your ticket on another date up to a year. However, your excuse for missing the March 5th date would have to be approved to avoid the $25 change fee on a future trip.
Friday, March 11th Trivia Night from 6:00PM-9:00PM Join us for Marbella Lakes Trivia Night on Friday, March 11th. Break your group into teams of (6) and choose a Team Captain. There will be (4) Rounds of (10) questions each. Scores will be updated after each round. If any team ties, they will be invited to star on real GAME SHOW Podiums. This night will be a blast. Prizes will be given. It comes with a full sound system, projector for questions, game show podiums and the official “GAME SHOW ANNOUCER”. Cost to attend will be $10 per person to participate in the trivia night (dinner at your own expense). There will be a FOOD TRUCK onsite for the event so you can order dinner if you want. I’m hoping it will be Little Pete’s, Parmesan Pete’s new food truck! Even if you do not attend the Trivia Night you can still get dinner from the onsite FOOD TRUCK that night. More information to follow.
