Fun is an integral part of college life. The students and authorities at Umpqua Community College (UCC) in Oregon are taking this a step further by combining play with a good cause. The college is organizing an evening of casino games to support their student athletes.
Casino fun for a cause
This is a follow-up of Casino Night from last year at UCC to support the student athletes. The idea is to have fun at the campus with poker, roulette, craps and blackjack. The event consists of dinner and games. The culinary department at UCC will be providing the dinner and the night will also consist of an auction and of course casino games. The auction includes items such as hotel stays, free tax consultations, golf packages and desserts. Yes, the UCC celebrities who are also culinary experts will be providing a range of desserts to auction off for the fundraiser.
The cause itself
The Casino Night fundraiser is one of the biggest events at UCC. The major success of the previous fundraiser has made students and others look forward to this year’s event. Of course there are sponsors to help the cause. And then there are students and authorities who work tirelessly to raise funds for the student athletes. The money from the previous event was utilized to upgrade the sports facilities at the campus such as improving the gymnasium, purchasing the scoreboard and other furniture required for the department.
The tickets for the event are priced at $45 for one and $400 for an entire table for 10 people. The event will be held at the UCC campus and tickets will also be available at the venue. But tickets are also available to be purchased through the college website. This is a great way to raise funds for the athletes where the entire campus comes together to have fun.
