2017 Casino Night Fundraiser
Fri, March 31, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM CDT
Our annual Mr. Robbins Neighborhood Spring Fundraiser will be a Casino Night at the New World Inn on Friday, March 31, 2017. The Casino Night Fundraiser will feature blackjack tables, roulette and craps games, mouth-watering appetizers, a fully stocked bar, auction, and other opportunities to give back and have fun!
Who does the Casino night benefit?
The Casino Night is for the benefit of Mr. Robbins Neighborhood, a private nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is dedicated to inspiring youth athletes on and off the playing field through education, training, career exploration, and mentorship. Proceeds from our Casino Night Fundraiser will help support the vital work that MRN develops for the youth of the Gulf Coast. Last year's event raised nearly $70,000 for MRN. Our goal is to do even better this year!
How does the Casino Night work?
For our Casino Night event, you donate money (to benefit MRN) and receive chips to play. Games will include blackjack, craps, and roulette. At the end of the evening, the person(s) with the most tickets is eligible for our prize packs. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the evening.
What if I am not the gambling type?
This is an event with something for everyone. There will be great food, great drinks, great music and great company. In addition to gaming, there will be a fabulous live auction with three exclusive packages to choose from and bid on. If you do not know how to play any of the games, our dealers will be more than happy to help explain the rules. Everyone will have a lot of fun, that is guaranteed.
What do I get with my ticket?
