Summer is traditionally a hard time for many families who count on the free and reduced meals that their children receive during the school year to provide their primary source of nourishment. At the South Brevard Sharing Center, this raises the demand for food and other items. At the same time, summer has traditionally been a lean time for the donations that allow the SBSC to continue to serve people in need.

A-Night-In-CasablancaA Night In Casablanca fundraiser on May 9 plans to close this gap by raising money to support the children in need in the community.

Guests will try their luck at blackjack, roulette, craps, and poker Texas hold’em tables and are encouraged to wear Casablanca style attire. First timer? Professional dealers will be there to show guests the ropes.

$100 Texas Hold’em Tournament

Show off your poker face in the main event poker tournament. The grand prize is a trip to Vegas along with a gaming raffle ticket payout over the top 10 finishers.

All gaming is done using “Casablanca dollars” and chips. Winnings are converted to gaming raffle tickets for a chance to win a total of over $35,000 worth of prizes. Top prizes include $8,000 toward a new car at Toyota of Melbourne and desirable vacations

$10,000 Cash Raffle

No more than 300 of these tickets will be sold for the $10,000 raffle. The winning ticket will be drawn following the gaming raffle prize distribution at the end of the evening at “A Night in Casablanca” but you are not required to be present to win.
