CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Department of Athletics will host the annual Islander Athletic Fund Casino Night on Saturday, August 3.

A limited number of tickets are still available for the event, which supports the student-athlete scholarship fund. Casino Night generated over $100,000 last year. It features casino gaming tables, music, interaction with Islanders coaches, and plenty of auction items!

KRIS 6 Anchor Mike Gillaspia will once again serve as the evening’s emcee.

“Casino Night has become one of the premier events of the entire year for Islanders fans and the Corpus Christi community,” said Director of Athletics Jon Palumbo. “This event is a great opportunity for members of our community to engage with our coaches and staff, while helping raise money that directly impacts our student-athletes. It's a can't miss event for anyone that wants to have a great time while supporting the Islanders.”

It is all happening at 6 p.m. at the Anchor Ballroom in the University Center on the campus of TAMU-CC.
