Cheshire Home's Casino Night Was An Great Evening For All!
On Saturday, October 13th, we hosted our third annual Casino Night. Supporters from near and far joined in for an evening at Cheshire Home as they played casino games, enjoyed delicious food, frequented our bar, and won lots of great prizes! We're appreciative of the generosity of our guests, as their support allows us to continue offering our residents the programs they need to rehabilitate and live independent lives.
The evening kicked off with casino games spread across Cheshire Home. Guests were given funny money and were off as they embarked on the casino games, provided by Tumbling Dice. The funny money was traded in for chips and the games were underway! Dealers gave lessons in craps, blackjack, the money wheel, and roulette. The game rooms were buzzing with happy participants- many of whom were big winners! Thank you to Tumbling Dice for bringing our Casino Night to life!
The evening included a Texas Hold ‘Em Poker Tournament that was held in our dining room. The tournament was exciting, and we are happy to announce that the top three winners walked away with a $200 TD Bank gift card for 3rd place, $300 TD Bank gift card for 2nd place, and $500 TD Bank gift card for the Tournament Champion. Congratulations to our top 3 and everyone who gave it their all!
Once again, our food was catered by Encore and boy was it a treat! Encore’s professional staff came in, cooked all of the food on our terrace, and served as the guests enjoyed the evening. Encore’s food included sliders, a pasta station, mini fondue bowls, mini lobster rolls, parmesan crusted chicken, and countless additional hors d'oeuvres. There are no words to describe the high quality of service Encore offers our facility each year.
At the end of the evening, guests cashed in their chips for raffle tickets to use in our Tricky Tray. Thank you to everyone who donated prizes! We were able to offer 100 amazing prizes through our Tricky Tray, Let’s Make a Deal, and Silent Auction. There is always such excitement as we announce prizes and hope everyone enjoys the gifts that they ended the evening with! Our 50/50 drawing closed out the evening. Congratulations to all of our lucky prize winners!
