Memorial Hospital Foundation Hosting Casino Night

Feeling lucky? Get ready to roll the dice.

You don’t need an ace up your sleeve to help the Memorial Hospital Foundation raise a little money, and have a good time doing it. The Foundation will host its first Casino Night from 5 to 10 p.m. Sept. 17, 2022, at Bunning Hall Freight Station.

“We typically host our MHSC Golf Classic in the summer or early fall, but the Foundation Board asked that we do something different this year,” said Tiffany Marshall, Foundation Executive Director. “This is a new event for us and we're excited to see how it goes.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Foundation’s Greatest Needs Fund to support a television upgrade project. “The current televisions in our patient rooms are a little outdated with limited channel availability,” Marshall said. “We want to get those upgraded so any patient staying in the hospital can utilize their own app-based programs such as Netflix, Discovery+, Disney+, or whatever else they subscribe to.”

The upcoming Casino Night is strictly for entertainment; guests won’t be able to cash out their chips for winnings at the end of the night.

“We can’t cash out chips, but we still want to provide an opportunity for our guests to walk away with some cash at the end of the evening,” Marshall said. “So, we’re doing a Progressive Drawing.”
Drawings will be held every hour starting at 6 p.m. with a $100 prize and will increase by $100 every hour. The grand prize drawing will be at 10 p.m., where the lucky winner will walk away with $500.
“We have had a lot of support and interest in this new event so far,” she said. “It’s really exciting to see, and I’m beyond thankful to the community members and our local businesses that have already inquired about sponsorships.”

Food trucks will be on location and available throughout the evening including Buffalo 44 Pizza, Wing and Burger Box, and Tona Mama’s Kitchen. The Park Lounge is providing a cash bar. Turn Up the Volume DJ Services will provide music and emcee the event.

Tickets are $100 each, including 50 gaming chips and automatic entry into the Progressive Drawing. Card Sponsorships are currently available for $400 and include two tickets, a dedicated sponsored card table, and additional recognition opportunities.
