Casino Night 2014
Hospital to host Casino Night benefit on March 8 (February 7, 2014)
Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation will host a Casino Night benefit on Saturday, March 8 from 7-11 p.m. at St. John Vianney Church Family Life Center in Prince Frederick to raise funds to support the hospital’s Transition to Home program.
According to hospital spokesperson Kasia Sweeney, the goal of the program is to make sure that patients have a safe transition to home after being discharged. She said this includes patient education, transportation support and follow-up care.
“We’re confident this program will have a big impact on the lives of many in our community who just need a little extra support to stay healthy after they go home,” said Lynette Entzian, foundation board vice president, who is co-chairing the event with fellow board member Maria Lubrano.
“Please join us for a fun-filled evening – all in support of a great cause,” said Lubrano. “No worries if you don’t know how to gamble. “With ‘funny money’ and professional croupiers who will teach you the rules of the game – all you need is a little luck.”
Tickets are $75 in advance and $85 at the door. Participants 21 years and older can try their luck at classic games such as blackjack, Texas Hold’em, roulette and craps provided by Fantasy World Entertainment while enjoying music by DJ Dave and lite fare by local caterers, beer and wine.
Guests will receive a stash of “funny money” and can purchase extra if they run out of betting dough. There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities for businesses, community and civic organizations as well as community members who want to be a part of Casino Night. Sponsorship packages are available at levels ranging from $350 to $2,000.
At the end of the evening, guests will be able to convert their “winnings” into tickets that can be entered into a raffle for terrific prizes. Guests will be able to put their tickets in as many or as few raffle drawings as they choose; increasing their chances to win the one they want the most. Each prize is worth at least $150.
