Friday Movie Night: Monsters vs Aliens
Monsters, aliens, chilling in the pool—what could be better on a hot Friday night in June? Tomorrow night, June 7, is the first of the June Friday Movie Night series at the pool. View “Monsters vs Aliens” while floating in the pool. These movie nights are the only times when floaties are allowed. The action starts at dusk, around 8 p.m. or so. Check out the Future Events schedule at the end of this message or under the Events tab for the schedule of all the June movies.
Let’s Make Waves Poolsharks Fundraiser Party this Saturday
Come eat, drink (BYOB) and be merry and help the PoolSharks raise money for our beautiful, new starting blocks. The Let’s Make Waves Poolsharks fundraiser party is this Saturday, June 8, from 6 pm – 9 pm. All are welcome, and kids are encouraged to come. Tickets for the food ($5 for Pool Shark sliders, chips & coleslaw) will be sold during the party. There will be live music with the Dammages accompanied by special guest, Bo Vaden. At 6:15 p.m., the Venetian version of The Amazing Race for children and adults will begin. The evening also features a diving contest and lots of homemade desserts.
The Split the Pot raffle gives ½ the pot to the winner (who does not need to be present to win), and the other ½ goes to help pay for the new starting blocks. You can buy raffle tickets at the front desk today through Saturday’s party via cash or check for a chance to win the ½ pot. Raffle tickets are $5 each for $20 for five. Who knows—Saturday may be your lucky day!
Swim-a-thon for CURE Childhood Cancer
Now is the time to register or donate for 3rd Annual Swim-a-thon on Saturday, June 15, to benefit CURE Childhood Cancer. Registrants will be swimming from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m., but you can participate by donating any time! This event is in honor of our own Venetian Poolshark, Katherine (Kate) Athanassiades. Kate, who celebrates her 16th birthday on the day of this year’s swim-a-thon, was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in September 2010 and underwent neurosurgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. She has been a Poolshark for more than 10 years, a Junior Shark coach and a Junior Guard. For the combined first two years of this event, Venetian has raised over $12,000. Let’s see if we can match or surpass it this year on our honoree’s birthday!! You can register or donate by going to:
or contact Elizabeth Woodcock for a registration or donation form.
