David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation Casino Night
This past Friday the 8th, we made our way down to the shore for a casino night to support David’s Dream & Believe Cancer Foundation. The night was hosted at the scenic Sea Shell Resort which is right on the shore of Beach Haven, New Jersey. The casino took place on the patio under one of the tiki huts as well as in the main bar area inside of the resort. The event ran from 7 till midnight with the casino running from 7:30 till 10:30.
The night started with the cocktail hour that included an open bar and light finger foods. Once the guests settled in a few announcements were given with the final, and most heartfelt, by David himself. He shared a bit of his journey with the guests and gave awareness to the cause everyone was there to support. After the speech the festivities began.
The casino games included one roulette table, two craps tables, eight blackjack tables, and three poker tables. They ran just as they normally do, except for two key elements added for entertainment and donation purposes. The ladder was a donation option offered and in return the donating guest received $600 worth of casino chips and a chance to play a hand with a special deck that included jokers. This offer only happened once per table and became a great bit of fun for the guests. The first mentioned was the option to buy a coin which would multiply the guests winnings by 5 if they won on a hand.
Once the guests had concluded their gambling they turned in their casino chips for tickets to the raffle prizes. Some of the prizes included Giants Tickets, Surfboards, Kegorator, and a pink bicycle. It was a great evening filled with fun and friends that helped raise money and awareness for an even greater cause.
