One of the great things about a casino night event is that you can have a great time throwing a rocking party all for a good cause. If you're considering a casino night event, think about partnering with a local charity to help raise some funds. There are several ways you can go here.
One option is to charge money for tickets to attend the casino event. Typically, the ticket will also buy guests a certain amount of gaming chips to get them started. Or you could have free entry, but the guests have to buy in to get their chips.
At the end of the night, the guests won't trade in their chips for cash like at a real casino, but they get the prestige of being the big winner for the night and the honor of helping out a worthy cause in the process. If you want, you can offer a few prizes for top winners to give them a little something to play for.
