Share Vancouver's ninth annual gala fundraiser on March 9 will feature a Casino Royale theme.

There will be casino-style gaming and both silent and live auctions. Live auction items include "Meet Me on Canal Street," a five-day, four-night getaway package for two to New Orleans, including airfare and a stay in the Hilton New Orleans Riverside; and "Choose Your Cruise," a seven-day Holland America cruise for two to any of a number of possible destinations.

The silent auction will include more than 150 items, including gift baskets and trip packages. The complete list is available online at sharevancouver.org, which is also where you can purchase tickets.

Tickets are $75 per person, which includes gaming scrip. Black-and-white attire is preferred. Share tends the homeless and hungry in Clark County, operating shelters, food programs and more. Last year's event raised $150,536.

The event is set for 5 to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 9, at the Hilton Vancouver Washington, 301 W. Sixth St.
