Casino Final Flier

Skye Scott, assistant editor

Fog, red carpet, colorful lights, loud music, these are just a few of the things that come to mind when one thinks about PVCC’s Student Government Association’s (SGA) annual Casino Night. Casino Night is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 27, from 7 – 11 p.m. This is one of the SGA’s biggest and most anticipated events of the entire fall semester. The purpose of this event is to gather PVCC students, faculty, staff, and Charlottesville locals for a fun night right around Halloween.

Participants are given a set amount of fake money at the door, with more money going to people who wear costumes and/or bring a PVCC ID card.

The night is always colorful and full of cards, snack food, music, and laughter. Card games include poker, blackjack, and roulette, which are all dealt by SGA members or PVCC faculty.

Participants are encouraged to wear costumes since they will receive additional playing money. Near the end of the event, there is also a costume contest. The winner of this contest will receive a gift card.

At the end of the night, participants turn in the money and tokens they have won while playing cards and are given raffle tickets. The last part of the event is a raffle drawing, with prizes including gift cards to many local places. Everyone has a chance to win!

John Linkous, the director of events for the SGA, said, “Casino Night is a yearly event that we do in October. It’s an event where students can dress up for Halloween and have fun gambling with pretend money. I personally like the event as it’s unique, and I enjoy playing the various games and seeing the various costumes people wear for Halloween.”
