“Emerald Evening” Casino Night & Auction to Benefit College

Release Date: Saturday, March 15, 2008

 For a $40 donation per ticket, guests receive $50 in chips to try their luck on casino style games such as Texas Hold ’Em Poker, Black Jack, Craps, Roulette, Slots, Big Six Wheel, and high roller tables. Guests will be treated to a delicious hors d’ oeuvres buffet, wine, beer, and soft drinks. A cash martini bar will be available.

In addition to the variety of casino games, another highlight of the evening includes a wide assortment of silent and live auction items such as a 10 day stay at a Hawaiian vacation home as well as other vacation packages, furs, beautiful jewelry, sports memorabilia, restaurant certificates, spa treatments and much, much more. Surprise guests will also be on hand for the event. “Last year, we put the “fun” back into fundraising with our first casino night,” says Cathy Lockyer, who is part of the casino night committee and a member of the Board of Directors at Chestnut Hill. “We succeeded in creating an event that appeals to different ages and backgrounds, and everyone had a great time. This year through our committee, we have created an evening of fun and surprises that is over the top.”

All proceeds from the event benefit Chestnut Hill College students through enriching academic and student life programs on campus.

Tickets are $40 in advance, or $50 at the door. Event sponsorship and advertising opportunities are available, and prize donations are welcomed.
