On Friday, September 30th the Young Professionals Council hosted their signature event, Casino Night which took place at the new Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona’s event space. More than 90 guests came out in support of BBBSAZ and the YPC group specifically.
Attendees tried their luck in games of craps, roulette, and blackjack. The three players with the highest chip counts at the end of the evening took home some awesome prizes. The night’s big winner Dr. Suzy Stein, took home an in-home casino party from Queen of Hearts. The two runner’s up for the evening won gift cards to local restaurants! Attendees had a chance to bid on exclusive silent auction items including date night experiences, Match outings, and sports memorabilia. They also enjoyed music by local DJ Edward Joseph, hors d’oeuvres from Conceptually Social catering, beer donated by OHSO Brewery, and wine donated by GenuWine Arizona. But, most importantly, this event raised over $21,000 for BBBSAZ! The proceeds from Casino Night will help BBBSAZ continue its mission to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
