KAR News Update w/e 16th November 2018


Play Your Cards Right was a great success for KAR.

KAR’s Curry n Cards evening was a smash hit. Sartaj Restaurant Catalkoy rang out to screams of HIGHER – LOWER as the packed restaurant hosted the first Play Your Cards Right event for KAR.

The games paid out over 750TL in prize money to the lucky winning contestants and a fantastic 1,545TL and £20 was raised (for KAR) just on the games and Santa’s Secret raffle.

There was a lovely selection of new KAR merchandise on sale (calendars, keyrings and mugs) so there was also some early Christmas shopping (over 400TL) taking place.

THANK YOU Sartaj and to everyone who came along and apologies to those who wanted to but couldn’t as all of the tables were booked out.

Bobby Dazzler and the Dolly Dealers – along with Tuneful Terry – will be back!!

Watch this space for details of the next Play Your Cards Right event.


Another KAR Bingo and Music night

Following the success of the previous KAR Bingo and Music night there will be another – this time at Blue Song Restaurant Lapta on Wednesday November 28th. You need to be in it to win it – bingo tickets will be on sale on the night at 7pm with the first game expected to begin at 7.30 pm.

3 kinds of bingo will be played (including the popular American Bingo) for cash prizes. Plus there will be live music in the intervals.

For those who want to eat the Blue Song usual menu will be available.


Jon and Bob who have been playing live music for KAR have had a change of venue for the winter months.

They will now be playing at The Roadhouse in Alsancak.  Still on a Tuesday.  Still from 2.30pm.

Come down and support the boys and also KAR.



Christmas Bazaar

Make a note in your diary for the KAR Christmas Bazaar on 8th December at the Pia Bella Hotel, from 10.30am.   There will be plenty of stalls with bric-a-brac, Christmas decorations, cakes, games and toys, jewellery and much more.  There will also be a tombola and our grand Christmas draw.
