20th Anniversary Celebration - March 26, 2010

It's our chapter's 20th Anniversary!

To celebrate, we put on a Casino Night for our members.

In September we started by handing out "Save the Date" cards.

We followed up in October by announcing we were looking for table sponsors.

In November, we asked:
"Where in the World is?"
of our membership asking for help in finding previous board members.

After touring several locations, we picked Noto's Old World Italian Dining, a locally owned restaurant for our event. We hired another local company to supply the gaming tables, the dealers, the chips and everything else needed. We had food stations rather than a formal sit-down dinner. There was plenty to choose from with appetizers, a carving station, a pasta station and a dessert and coffee station. And, of course, a cash bar.

Once we were done eating & visiting, it was game time!
Texas Hold'em, Blackjack, Roulette, Craps.

And when the gaming was done, it was time to turn in your chips for tickets to be placed in the bags for the 50/50 raffle in support of our new charity, "The Kids' Food Basket".

Before choosing winners...a few words & the presentation of the 20-Year Certificate by Pat Monea.The winner, Pat Monea, donated his winnings right back to the kids. Thanks Pat! And the kids thank you too!

We made goodie bags for each of our guests.  They included this bag of real dice and chocolate "poker" chips.

They also included this pack of custom playing cards with our chapter name and the event on them.

Good bags are ready!
