2019 Casino Night

  • ARE YOU READY TO ROLL? The Morningside Elementary School PTA invites you to their 2019 Casino Night!
    WHEN: Saturday 2nd March 2019 – 7pm to 11pm
    WHERE: The Commerce Club – Atlanta (see Directions & Parking information below)
    ATTIRE: Cocktail Attire 
    • A fabulous night of fun Casino games – Blackjack, Roulette and Craps!
    • Delicious food and an open bar
    • DJ Yvonne Monet
    • The evening will culminate in a raffle – cash in your play-money winnings for tickets to go into the running for one (or more if you’re lucky!) of our raffle prizes.
    AFTER-PARTY: The Family Dog have agreed to host us after the event ends for an after–party, 11pm to 1am all welcome. There will be some late-night snacks and a cash bar. 
    • The first question everyone has: “Is it a real Casino?” No! We will be playing all the games with ‘Play Money’.
    • You can purchase this “Play Money” in increments of $25.
    • $25 will equate to $500 of ‘Play Money’.
    • Casino Tables will be set-up throughout the venue, manned with professional dealers ‘ready to roll’.
    • Enjoy the evening and win as much as you can!
    • Towards the end of the evening, we will finish up the games and each player will cash their ‘Play Money’ in for raffle tickets. (Important note: ‘Play Money’ cannot be cashed back in for cash/real currency).
    • Players will receive one raffle ticket for each $500 of Play Money they have retained or won (rounded up – eg. If you have $600 of winnings, you will receive two raffle tickets). The more you win – the more raffle tickets you can collect.
    • Raffle ticket holders drop their tickets into the draw for the raffle prizes and winners will be drawn.
    • For those guests not wanting to play Casino games during the evening, raffle tickets are available for direct purchase at $25/ticket.
    • All proceeds raised from ‘Play Money’ and raffle ticket sales go back to the PTA.

     Raffle Prizes Include:
