Goal

An original fundraising event at our local Casino to support the humanitarian organization SOS Attitude* by financing emergency shelters (RED tents) for the Philippines following typhoon Hayian.

*SOS Attitude is specialized in emergency tents for vulnerable or displaced families following natural disasters or conflicts.

Overview:

The starting point of our project is a solid partnership with our local Casino: they were delighted to host our fundraising event, and made their staff, croupiers and restaurant room available FOR FREE.

The idea was to bring together loads of guests (maximum 90) in a very beautiful Casino, to spend a friendly&fun evening together around a generous buffet and game tables, where, for the very first time in the Casino history, there was no money to win! People play and bet, but keep their coins for the special auction…

Everyone pays a entrace fee that includes food&drink, access to the tables and bucket of tokens to play. We also had a magician, a wheel, a tombola and a quiz going on during the evening to make sure everybody had fun and could win a little gift.
