“And I like large parties. They’re so intimate. At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
Jay Gatsby is coming to town, and he's bringing the best of Monte Carlo with him. We're hosting the first annual Great Gatsby Ball: Casino Night at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. We'll have over two dozen table games for you to choose from- Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and more. Try your luck, and see how high you can grow your stacks. At the end of the night, the more chips you've got, the better your chances are to win one of over $5,000 in prizes. Best of all, we're raising proceeds for the Raleigh-Wake Partnership to End & Prevent Homelessness, so you can roll the dice with a good conscience!
When you're done at the tables, step over to the Daily Planet Theater for the dance party that made Gatsby infamous. Video DJ Al-Ski Love will keep the party raging all night with your favorite songs and music videos.
The longer you wait, the higher the ticket price will be. Tickets are grouped by pricing tiers, once a tier sells out then the price increases. Don't delay! Buy your ticket today.
Hosted by Great Crawl Events & The Raleigh-Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness.
