SGA prepares for annual Casino Night
The Student Government Association (SGA) at Piedmont Virginia Community College will hold its annual Casino Night on March 30 from 7 to 11 p.m. Students, faculty and staff are invited to the masquerade-themed event, which will take place in the Bolick Student Center. “This is the big event we’re looking forward to right now,” said Beth Russell, chairman of the SGA Events Committee.
Casino Night will feature games, such as blackjack, craps and roulette, as well as food, “mockails,” a DJ and a hot drinks bar on the patio. Guests may also enter a raffle for various prizes. Each participant will receive $40,000 in gambling chips upon arrival, which he or she can use to play games or exchange for raffle tickets.
“No money changes hands during the night; this is a completely free event for students, faculty and staff,” said SGA President Charlotte Russell. “You can relax and have a good time; the games are really fun, there’s socializing and it’s a great chance to win a prize or two.” Prizes will include a grand prize, an Apple iPad, as well as others donated by local businesses.
Guests can also expect a photo booth with photos available for download from the SGA Facebook page. “It was a big hit last year,” said Charlotte Russell.
The SGA is seeking volunteers to deal cards, usher guests, and serve food and drinks, as the event last year “had such a big turnout,” said Beth Russell. Volunteers receive an extra $10,000 in gambling chips for games and prizes, as do guests who dress up according to the masquerade theme.
