Like to gamble without the fear of losing money?
On Oct. 21, you’ll have the opportunity to do so at Envision Children
’s Red Carpet Casino Night
fundraiser at Prime 47.
Fifty different table games, such as blackjack and roulette will be set up, and there will be a caricaturist, free food and even a fire performer.
"We are billing it as the biggest and best after-office party of the season,” says Matt Hughes, Envision Children's business manager and coordinator of the event. “We expect office workers stopping by after work, along with weekend revelers who will travel downtown to enjoy a fun-filled evening, gambling for fun and supporting Envision Children's work with disadvantaged children."
Participants will receive chips for gameplay, which they can later cash in for raffle tickets and the chance to win one or more of the 75 prizes up for grabs.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. and is $35, which includes food, initial casino chips and a night of entertainment.
The nonprofit works “to provide under-served students with supplemental educational instruction in science, technology, engineering, math, reading and critical thinking that will allow them to excel academically.”
And Envision Children makes it a goal to weave in a creative take on fundraising to fulfill that mission.
“It’s going to be a great time had by all,” Hughes says.
