July 23, 2014 3:10am

Bree Shannon, Helen Heard, Liza Curtis and Chantelle Webb are ready to show Kyabram a bit of the high-life with their fundraising Casino Night in August.

A night of frivolity awaits all those who attend the East Timor Immersion Group’s Casino Night this August.

Residents are invited to take part in a night of gambling, wine and good food with all proceeds going towards the Immersion Group’s humanitarian trip to East Timor this September.

With the theme of ‘‘Casino Royale’’ those wishing to take part will be given 20000 Casino Fun Dollars to use throughout the evening with Roulette, Black Jack and other games on offer.

This year 12 Kyabram residents will be travelling to Aileu and Assirimou Village through the East Timor Immersion Group from September 19 to 30, with locals Gwen and Alex Ranson, Helen and Michael Heard, Vicki and Geoff Woodhouse, Sharon and Stephanie Guerra, Bree Shannon and Liza Curtis all set to fly out.

Funds from the Casino Night will be spent on educational resources, including textbooks, laptops and tablets, for the Technical Vocational College and Foscaca Youth Group in Assirimou Village.

Participants in the trip will engage in teaching students how to use laptops, basic word processing and Tetun-English language apps to improve English speaking skills.

The group will also provide the ISMAIK boarding home with bedding, mattresses and linens for students.

The event will be held at the Kyabram Town Hall on August9 from 7pm.

Tickets cost $30 per person with supper provided and can be purchased online at or by phoning Liza Curtis on 0429189141 or Chantelle Webb on 0400311615.
