VEGAS is coming to Westward Ho! for a special charity night fundraiser next week.
Friends Kathy Smale and Laura Davison are staging a Vegas-style casino night at The Elizabethan in Merley Road as part of their fund-raising efforts in memory of Kathy's dad, Jeff Snell, who died earlier this year at the age of 56.
The casino night will be the start of fund-raising that the girls, both 28, will continue by running the London Marathon next year.
It will include an Elvis tribute act, casino and roulette tables, raffle and auction.
Her father had been a well-know figure locally, as a member of the Round Table and through playing football for Bideford, said Kathy.
After attending a stag night in Las Vegas, he and friends enjoyed themselves so much that they returned for three years afterwards to repeat the experience."
