If you've been waiting for the right time to release your inner pirate, then you'll want to go on this grand advent-ARRRR!. The Buccaneer's Ball takes place Saturday, October 26, at the Hilton DoubleTree Inn (1111 Jefferson Road) 6-11 p.m.
Enjoy casino-style gambling, munch on hors d'oeuvres, dig into dinner dishes and desserts, partake in an auction, and get swept away by the Caribbean sounds of the Alfred St. John's Trinidad & Tobago Steel Drum Band. Make sure to put on the best pirate gear you have—bandanas, puffy shirts, cutlasses, and shoulder parrots should get you started on the right path — and compete in the pirate costume contest.
Tickets are $65 per person or $115 per couple, with all proceeds benefitting the Pirate Toy Fund. You must be 21 or older to attend. Your ticket gets you $500 of Buccaneer's Bucks (gambling money) and one free drink. Visit piratetoyfund.org or call 271-5519 for tickets and more information.
