Mix, Mingle and Gamble at our 2018 Casino Night
EAC Network’s 2018 Casino Night is the premier high-stakes affair of the year for socially-conscious Long Islanders. It gives local residents the opportunity to mix, mingle, and gamble — all in the name of charity.
You can help us empower, assist and care by testing your luck at these games of chance:
- Texas Hold ‘Em
- Black Jack
You can also participate in auctions, while enjoying decadent desserts and an open bar.
Tickets cost $250, which includes $100 in “funny money.” Sponsorships and underwriting opportunities are also available, which feature additional perks, like a virtual journal ad and a social media shout out.
Come for the cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, stay for the games and prizes!
