Got a couple of fundraisers coming up that will benefit athletic programs in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.
The United Mt. Diablo Athletic Foundation is hosting a “Vegas Night” at the Concord Hilton on April 30. It will be a full house casino event run by professional gaming providers. There’ll be a Texas Hold’em tournament, and the winner will get a one-year lease for a 2011 Toyota Camry, sponsored by Toyota of Walnut Creek. The $50 per person cost takes care of dinner and chips. Entering the hold’em tournament is an additional $100. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit www.unitedmtdiabloathletics.org.
OK, the second event coming up is specific to Mt. Diablo High. The Red Devils are hosting their first annual Car, Bike and Truck Show on April 9 at MDHS. To register an automobile in the show is $25, and proceeds benefit Mt. Diablo High athletics. Registration goes from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m., judging from 10 to 2 p.m. and the trophy ceremony is at 3 p.m. Admission is free for spectators.
