All the chips were out for Sigma Kappa’s annual casino night to support their philanthropy and bring their families together.
The event was held Friday in the Campus Center Ballroom to welcome students with their families to support a good cause.
A total of 175 people attended the event.
The night was designed to mimic a live casino, minus slot machines, and the dealers were Sigma Kappa members who took shifts at tables.
Sigma Kappa family members surrounded the tables and mingled throughout the room.
There were two craps tables, four black jack tables and two roulette tables.
The theme for the night was “Cocktail Hour.”
Donations were exchanged for play money that could then be turned into chips to play the table games.
The night gave members of Sigam Kappa a chance to gamble amongst each other and guests with play money that came in the form of $100 bills.
The evening was successful in raising $5,000 for the Sigma Kappa Foundation.
“I enjoyed the atmosphere and the casino games and excitement. I look forward for next year to come.” junior movement and sports science major Alyssa Guerrero said
Black and red adorned the Campus Center ballroom while guests snacked on treats brought by members and their families.
“It was so great to see so many people come out to support a great cause. I really enjoyed that the entire night was super interactive,” junior Michelle Scribner said. “I thought dealing blackjack was super fun and I know everyone enjoyed playing.”
“The ladies of Sigma Kappa had a very well organized event. I enjoyed the silent auction and raffle which gave people the opportunity to win prizes while donating for a charitable cause,” raffle winner and Azusa resident Bryan Alberto said.
