The first day of December is set to bring more to the community of Eckville, Alberta, as residents will have the chance to support the youth in the region while participating in entertaining gambling offerings at the Eckville Community Center. The fundraising event is going to provide support for the construction of a brand new playground area at the Eckville Elementary School.
The special event which is set to take place this Saturday is a rather special one for the region, as it provides individuals with the chance to make something great while having fun themselves. Eckville Fundraising Society recently announced the official date when the Christmas Casino Night is going to transform the town and make it a preferred spot for both locals and member of neighboring communities.
Exciting Gambling Offerings Available this Saturday
Since the town does not have a casino venue of its own, projections are that individuals will find this opportunity more than exciting. Doors open at 5.30 p.m. allowing all ticket purchasers access to the venue. However, real casino action is set to take place after 8 p.m. Tickets for the gaming offerings offered by the Eckville Fundraising Society include some $100,000 for participating in the casino games, in addition to two passes for drink purchasing while on site.
These thickets amount to some CA$40, making it a relatively affordable entry fee for all participants. They will have until November 30 to purchase the said tickets and reserve their spot at the charitable congregation. Players will have the chance to give their luck a try while supporting a good cause by participating in games to the liking of Roulette, blackjack, craps, cash crib, and three card poker. There will be food offerings on site will aim to meet the high expectations of all charitable players.
The casino offerings will cheer up the already cheerful mood of this Christmas Casino Night, but organizers promise more to all attendants. There will also be a silent auction which will aim to provide even more excitement to players present. Moreover, all participants will have the chance to give their luck a try at the 50/50 game which will also be held. Another favorite offering for many will be a raffle, further elevating the generated cash for the new playground.
Community Lacks Gaming Offerings
In order to make the gaming congregation even more appealing to residents of the community, organizers have confirmed that players’ drive home will be taken care of. Tiphany Eliuk, president of the Eckville Fundraising Society said the town bus is going to give them a ride home once they are done gambling and are ready to call it a night. Only players of legal age of 18 will have the opportunity to boost the local community and gamble at the special event, just like in a regular casino venue.
What should be taken into account taking into consideration the entire organization of the event, is that the community will also benefit from the new playground in addition to the local kids. The ultimate goal for this playground was set to CA$350,000. For reference, by April this year, the local fundraising organization managed to amass some CA$50,000.
The gambling nature of the congregation on December 1 has been carefully chosen, as Eckville town does not feature a gambling venue. The closest casino venues to Eckville are the facilities in Red Deer. The community enjoys both Jackpot Casino and Cash Casino Red Deer, which is best known for its poker offerings. Eckville residents are already used to make their way to the neighboring community which is some 30 miles away.
