By NITISH S. RELE - editor@khaasbaat.com

Anyone up for roulette, blackjack, poker or craps? Don't worry; you won't need to fly to Las Vegas or Atlantic City to play the games. It's for a good cause, the newly opened ICC school and cultural activities at India Cultural Center (5511 Lynn Road) in Tampa.

Nearly 500 people should be dropping in to enjoy the Casino Night, beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 9 at ICC. Admission is $100, which includes money to play, dinner and free drinks for the first hour. "We are looking to raise $100,000," said ICC President Dr. Mahesh Amin. "We also will have a Vegas-style show during this black-tie event."

On the agenda is a silent auction. "Prizes include spending a day with Dr. Kiran C. Patel; week's stay at a townhouse on the beach; weekend at a condo on the beach; and a round of golf for four," said Amin.

For information, call Dr. Mahesh Amin at (727) 532-9578, Dr. Hitesh Patel at (727) 531-1523 or visit www.tampaicc.com
