The biggest event on campus will be a classy act this March. The 40th Annual Casino Night to Benefit the United Way of Lamoille County will be a black and white gala. The event, which will be held on March 10, is a fun filled night of gambling, cards, delicious food and fun prizes.
“This is an amazing event for both the JSC community and the United Way,” said Mary Fafard the chair of the Casino Night Committee. “To celebrate the impact this event has made over the last 40 years we decided to make this year’s theme a bit more special than usual.”
As always, the event will start with multiple blackjack tables and other casino games for attendees to play. Each ticket buyer will be given a glass full of fake money chips to play games late into the night. Around 10:30 p.m. the cash-out process will begin, and players will trade in their winnings for fake money that can be used at the end of the night auction. The live auction includes prizes from local Vermont businesses from all around the state. Some of last year’s biggest prizes included a Bash Badge to Smuggles Notch, a teddy bear from the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory and gift cards to Sushi Yoshi.
“SGA members spend weeks collecting donations for this event, and it’s really the highlight of the night,” said Fafard. “Folks that attend deserve these amazing prizes because they’re attending an event that supports the United Way. Their money goes towards the organization when they buy tickets, but at the end of the night, they could go home with an auction prize worth $50. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
The United Way of Lamoille County serves people in need in the Morrisville and Johnson area every year through its firewood program and other volunteer services.
Tickets will go on sale at Johnson State College on February 27. Tickets for students in advance are $5, and general admission is $10.
