Calvert Memorial Hospital Foundation will host a Casino Night benefit on Saturday, March 9 from 7-11 p.m. at St. John Vianney Church Vianney Room in Prince Frederick to raise funds for the purchase of state-of-the-art fetal monitors for the hospital’s birth center.
The advanced system will provide Calvert Memorial with the latest technology for measuring fetal well-being and assessing labor progress. “The new monitors will be a great asset,” said Holly Dooley, director of maternal health services at CMH, “and will provide an extra layer of safety for our patients.”
“As a parent, it’s important to me that our physicians and nurses have the tools they need to provide the best possible care,” said Mark Davis, foundation president. “Please join me for a fun-filled evening with great entertainment – all in support of a great cause.”
“No worries if you don’t know how to gamble,” said Davis. “With ‘funny money’ and professional croupiers who will teach you the rules of the game – all you need is a little luck.”
With the purchase of a $75 ticket, 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 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 $2,500.
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.
Tickets are available by calling the foundation office at 410-535-8178 or click here to register online. The public is welcome and attire for the evening is casual.
