Christmas Island Style has added a new event to its line-up for 2015: Casino Night.
Casino Night will take place on Saturday, October 17 from 6-9 PM at the Rose History Auditorium at the Marco Island Historical Museum.
The fun-filled evening boasts casino-style gambling, gift and cash raffles, a prize for the best-dressed couple (holiday-themed), silent auction items, and a bar manned by Marco Island celebrities. Light appetizers will be served.
Christmas Island Style board member Allyson Richards told us “Casino Night is a first-time event for Christmas Island Style, and is another way to help the organization provide its many holiday activities to the people of Marco Island, at no cost.”
Bringing some excitement to the island, professional casino party planners will set up the Rose History Auditorium in true Las Vegas style. There will be blackjack tables, Texas hold ‘em, three card poker, mini baccarat, casino war, roulette and craps.
Don’t know much about gambling? Don’t worry! No real money willbe lost. With your paid entrance ticket you will receive $200 worth of gambling chips. And although winners don’t walk out with cash, in addition to the raffles, there are 7 prize baskets, which will be awarded at the end of the evening.
Casino Night is a fundraising event for the Christmas Island Style organization, which brings a number of family-friendly holiday events to Marco Island, such as the boat parade, street parade, tree lighting and even a visit from Santa Claus. These activities are able to remain free of charge because of fundraising events, such as Casino Night.
Tickets are $35 per person, and include $200 in gambling chips, light appetizers and one drink ticket. Sponsorships are still available, including $150 Sponsor (3 tickets, 3 drinks and table advertising) and $300 Bar Sponsor (6 tickets, 6 drinks and table advertising).
