casino volunteers needed – september 2nd and 3rd

The Casino Night is back and we need volunteers!

Last year we had to cancel our Casino Night due to the pandemic but now that the city is reopening, you can help us raise funds on September 2nd and 3rd by volunteering at Pure Casino Edmonton.

This fundraising event helps the community league continue to maintain our facilities such as the tennis and basketball courts as well as host programs like the community gardens!
