‘Casino Royale’ fundraiser benefits Share Vancouver



Supporters of Share Vancouver gathered at the Hilton Vancouver Washington on Saturday for the organization’s ninth annual gala fundraiser.

This year’s fundraiser had a Casino Royale theme, complete with casino-style gaming and both silent and live auctions.

More than 400 attended the evening event.

Share helps homeless and hungry people throughout Clark County.

In 2012, the organization and 2,821 volunteers worked to provide shelter for more than 1,200 people and serve 27,000 free meals.

Its many other efforts includes distributing backpacks loaded with food to aid hungry schoolchildren and their families.

Last year’s fundraising gala raised $150,536.
