FAQs

List of 10 items.

  • Is the SJS Spring Fling a fundraising gala?

    The SJS Spring Fling Casino Royale is an original parent social soirée for SJS parents and friends and family (the more the merrier) to have a fun evening out. It is not a school fundraiser, but any proceeds made on the evening will be donated to a student-selected charity and to SJS financial aid.
  • Can I invite friends and family who don’t attend St. John’s School?

    Everyone over the age of 19 is welcome to attend. Bring your friends and family to join in the fun.
  • What does the ticket price include?

    We’ve worked hard to keep the ticket price as reasonable as possible to just cover the costs of the evening. You will have an opportunity to enjoy international small plates, a welcome cocktail, casino chips and non-stop entertainment, including a number of special Bond surprises during the evening. Complimentary coat check and valet parking will also be available.
  • What can we expect during the evening?

    The evening is designed as a fun, yet formal, cocktail reception where you can mingle with your friends, enjoy international small plates, sip Bond-inspired cocktails, try your luck in the casino and dance the night away. It is not a sit-down dinner but there will be plenty of food, beverages and seating available for guests.
  • Where is the Fraserview Banquet Hall? And how do we best get there?

    The Fraserview Banquet Hall is located at 8240 Fraser Street, Vancouver. While there will be complimentary valet parking available, we will ensure that there will be easy access to Vancouver’s taxicab companies so that you can plan for a safe ride home. You can also take an Evo to the event and take a cab home.
  • What should I bring to the event?

    You will receive your casino chips when you arrive, but please bring a credit card if you would like to purchase more chips or alcoholic beverages from the bar. Please also plan ahead for a safe ride home if you are planning to enjoy some cocktails.
  • What is the dress code for the evening?

    Black tie formal cocktail attire is suggested to keep in the Bond theme.
  • What will be included in the casino?

    The casino will include something for everyone. Blackjack and poker tables, roulette and a wheel of fortune will be available during the night.
  • Do I need to bring money for the casino?

    Money will not be allowed to be exchanged at the casino, nor will the dealers accept tips. Each guest will receive a bag of casino chips that is included in the ticket price. If you would like to purchase more chips, there will be a cashier at the event where you can use a credit card. However, you will not be able to cash in your chips for money at the end of the evening, only for a chance to win prizes.
  • Can I donate prizes to the casino?

    We will gladly accept donated prizes to the casino for guests to win. Please review our donation guidelines (above) and complete our donation form before March 8, 2019. Thank you for your generosity!
