BLYN — Pirate Casino Night, Friday's fundraiser for Peninsula College athletic scholarships, will have three main attractions this year.

Touring comedian Sammy Obeid will be the headliner. The college's four head coaches will present a quick talk. And participants have a chance to win a football autographed by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

The event will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 7 Cedars Casino, 270756 U.S. Highway 101.

Tickets available

Tickets are $75 per person or $125 per couple at by using the search terms “Pirate Casino Night,” and all proceeds will support scholarships for Peninsula College athletes.

Obeid, an alumnus of the University of California at Berkeley who double-majored in business and math, is completely into comedy now.

He's worked with Robin Williams and Dana Carvey, and recently set a record by doing stand-up on stage 1,001 nights in a row.

The evening also will feature appearances by Peninsula College coaches Alison Crumb, Kanyon Anderson, Andrew Chapman and Mitch Freeman, as well as athletics director Rick Ross. They will share stories about Pirate athletics in 2014.

A buffet dinner, dessert, an open bar and a silent auction of the Russell Wilson football, among other items, are also part of the evening.

For more details, visit or phone 360-452-9277.
