Remember Mary Ann from “Gilligan’s Island?” She’s coming to Soboba Casino. Dawn Wells made history as the first woman to sport “short shorts” on national television, and has been making hearts pound ever since.
If you are one of the many fans who tuned into “Gilligan’s Island” every week, you have the chance to get your photograph taken with none other than Dawn Wells herself from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, March 31. Soboba Casino is giving guests the possibility of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet Wells in person, and receive a custom T-shirt, complimentary autographed picture and your own photo with “Mary Ann.” (Autographed pictures and T-shirts are limited to first-come, first-served while supplies last.)
According to Gene Stachowski, director of marketing for Soboba Casino, “We are thrilled to have Dawn Wells joining us for this special event.” He continued, “Rumor has it that she is a big fan of Blackjack. You never know, she might even join us for a hand or two.”
Well’s appearance at Soboba Casino is in conjunction with the month long S.S. Soboba promotion, a “Gilligan’s Island”-themed Prize Wheel where guests have the chance to win a share of up to $114,000 in prizes every Saturday and Sunday between now and March 31.
Plus, Wells will be announcing the grand prize winner of a 2018 Bentley Pontoon after her meet and greet at 9 p.m.
