Pirate Casino Night is one of Peninsula College's signature athletic fundraising events, with proceeds going toward scholarships for student athletes, organizers say.
Headlining the evening is comedian Corey Rodrigues, who has performed on a variety of cable television shows, was the 2011 winner of the Funniest Comic in New England contest and was a semifinalist in the Boston Comedy Festival.
Rodrigues also recently starred in an independent film, “Business Is War,” a comedy directed by the late Kemal Gordon.
The evening also will feature brief appearances by athletic director Rick Ross and Peninsula College head coaches Alison Crumb, Kanyon Anderson and Mitch Freeman.
They will share stories about Pirate athletics in 2014-15.
Supporters also can look forward to a testimony from a student athlete.
Scooter Chapman of KONP radio will serve as master of ceremonies.
