The evening will begin with party-goers enjoying cocktails, sipping Tito’s Handmade Vodka specialty martini’s, enjoying a serving of Jack, and a silent auction all before entering the grand ballroom which will be transformed into a swanky gaming floor. Participants will try their luck at the tables, feast on a gourmet dinner & dessert bar, and have the opportunity to bid on fabulous live auction lots.

Having the opportunity to serve again as event chairman for Casino Night is a great honor, and I hope to continue to grow this event and help the Boys & Girls Club of Boca Raton continue its good work in the community,” said Co-Chairs.
