FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FT.LAUDERDALE, FL/ August 20, 2009--- The Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale (JLGFL) will host “Casino Royale- 009” on September 26, 2009 at the Hyatt Pier 66 in Ft.

It will be an exciting evening of classic “Bond” Casino action!
Tickets are $75 and they include Vegas-style entertainment, gambling money, as well as food & drinks. An all-exclusive ticket to the event is $150, which includes entry into the Texas Hold’em Tournament. At the end of the evening, “winnings” will be converted to exciting prizes that include experiences of a lifetime that James Bond himself would enjoy such as Powerboat rides, Helicopter rides, & trips! As a tribute to the “bond” theme, a gentleman from our community who contributes his time & service to support causes will be announced during the evening. Alongside him will be “bond girls.” These are specially nominated women who put the mission of the Junior League into action; they virtue volunteerism, demonstrate leadership, and have donated much of their time & effort to making Ft. Lauderdale a better community. Nominees are currently being notified by way of secret bond-type missions and will be announced in early September.
According to event chair, Jennifer Little-Kiss, "We look forward to an amazing night! The Junior League has accomplished so much in 72 years and has made a lasting impact on our community. Based on the success of this event, we will continue our work to maximizing the potential of families and assisting them in achieving their most important goals for years to come." The community has already expressed great interest in the event and a limited number of tickets are available for sale.
Funds raised annually by the JLGFL directly impact collaborative projects with partner organizations and support JLGFL's mission of promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community. This year’s JLGFL projects include its newest legacy project, the Fort Lauderdale Independence Training and Education Center (FLITE) for foster youth transitioning to independence in partnership with the United Way and Community Foundation of Broward. The FLITE Center provides services to foster youth such as life skills training to employment and financial services giving them the tools to pursue their dreams of a successful adulthood. Additional JLGFL projects include Childhood Fitness and Nutrition through Kids in the Kitchen and Healthfully Ever After; and numerous short term projects accomplished through Done-In-A-Day programs. The Junior League of Greater Ft. Lauderdale was originated in 1937 with its first legacy project Jack and Jill Nursery formerly known as Mrs. Parsons Nursery. Today, we have over 600 volunteer members.
