The Blue Dragon had undergone a slight makeover for the nights festivities; the blue clad tables were decorated with professionally made center pieces of exotic flowers from the earth and fire nations, the usual dim lighting have been turned up slightly to a more comfortable level to allow for better seeing while playing. The walls of the club were draped in purple in a artistic and pleasing manner and back lighted with faint golden light to show support for the cause they were raising money for. The stage area of the club was decorated in purple as well and the smaller tables had been placed in storage for the night to make room for the casino tables.
In the center of the casino floor was a very large and heavily guarded glass bowl that was to hold the money raised tonight. The waiters each had trays filled with specialty drinks and Hors d'oeuvre made for tonight and the live entertainment was a famous singer from Ba Sing Sei that had headlined many famous venues. Over all Zuka was happy with the final product, the party planning company she had hired and gone above and beyond to make the night a memorable one. The casino part had been a nice touch on her part, a little nod to her side business. Maybe it was cocky but it was amusing.
Zuka liked to throw parties like this every now and then, it allowed her to solidify her ‘friendships’ with the elite of this town all the while helping to secure her philanthropist image she tried to put off to the rest of the city. Most people thought she was generous with her money, giving to the Probending Arena, helping the shops in her district, throwing fundraisers like the event tonight. It fooled some people but most knew what she really did and why she did it. Zuka did want to help the city but it was second to her real reason for doing such things and mostly just a side benefit. Holding events and giving money helped when it came to favors.
Republic City; despite all of her advancements was still hurting from the attacks by the Equalist, the Dark Avatar and the spirit vines, many people were still without homes and the government could only do so much . Zuka knew she wasn’t the only one that did this, some of the other Triad bosses threw their hat into the ring with it came matters like these for the same reasons she did: to gain favors, to protect themselves and to buy off officials. It was nothing new, have you seen The Earth Kingdom? No one got far there unless they paid homage to the Queen, at least that had been the case when she was still alive.
The party was just starting to get into full swing; most of the people here were here by invitation. Probending athletes, mover stars and various politicians and people of authority had received invites (Zuka had even sent one to President Raiko but he ‘respectfully declined’) the rest of the guest had purchased tickets for the event and it had sold out.
The hostess of tonight’s event was busy mingling, Zuka was in a group of some probenders, laughing and drinking with them as they told stories of some of their more funnier moments in the ring. It was a enjoyable and entertaining time and she was content to stick with it for now. She had given instructions on the people at the door alerting her if and when a few select people entered the room but for now she was going to remain with her new friends.
