Join The Guardsmen at the first annual Havana Nights Casino for a night of competitive gaming, great prizes, live entertainment, and a warm and inviting Caribbean vibe.
Held at the historic and beautiful Bently Reserve in San Francisco, Havana Nights Casino will feature your favorite casino games, live music from Edgardo & Candela, salsa dancing (with lessons from seasoned dancers), and a DJ to keep you dancing into the night. All guests are welcome to channel the tropics at our hosted bars serving signature cocktails, wine, and beer, and enjoy a cigar prepared by the world-class cigar roller Lupe Perez*. VIP guests will have access to their very own hosted full bar and smoking patio where they can indulge on Telford's very own hand-cut cigars. And don’t miss the premium prizes and giveaways!
Casino chips are provided with the cost of your ticket - win big at the tables and trade in your chips for a chance to win great prizes and Havana Nights Casino Champion status. This unforgettable evening is for a great cause: support The Guardsmen in our mission to support at-risk Bay Area youth with camperships and scholarships.
Join 500 of your friends for a night of thrills and entertainment - purchase tickets early!
*Cigars in GA will be first come first serve while supplies last. All guests are encouraged to bring their own cigars as smoking areas will be made available for all.
Who are The Guardsmen?
Every year The Guardsmen changes lives across the Bay Area by sending more than 2,500 at-risk youth to outdoor education programs and by providing scholarships for more than 250 students to attend private schools.
What should I wear?
Ladies are encouraged to wear summer dresses fit for a warm Caribbean night - brightly colored cocktail dresses that are comfortable enough for a spin during salsa. Because it is chilly in San Francisco, you can wear a jacket and leave it in our complimentary coat check while you enjoy the night's festivities.
Gentlemen should wear suits, with bonus points for linen.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Guests must be 21 or older to purchase tickets; both tickets and valid ID's are required at the door for check-in - no exceptions.
What is the refund policy?
While tickets are non-refundable, you may transfer your ticket to a friend on Eventbrite.
