“Stand Beside Me” – do you know the ol’ Perry Como song? Well, I’m sure come April 29, 2011 you’ll be belting out the words like none other! This year, our Annual Casino Night will be held at the Cable Center on the University of Denver’s campus.
So what can you expect from MMD’s largest fundraiser of the year?
What is Casino Night?
Through the help of our patrons, donors, guests, and mentors, MMD’s seventh annual fundraising event provides the opportunity to raise funds in order to stand beside our mentees and make an impact in their lives.
Can I tell family, friends and colleagues about the evening?
Absolutely! Gather your best pals, carpool, vanpool and come along to this fun-filled festivity.
How does the fundraiser help MMD?
Through ticket sales, vendor table sponsors and auction items, the money raised at this annual event goes directly towards our overall fundraising goal.
Without it, we wouldn’t be able to send our students to summer programs, provide our seniors with scholarships, offer transportation to our mentees for Monday night sessions, and much more.
What should I expect at Casino Night?
This popular event features an evening of excitement with a fantastic dinner, a live auction and Las Vegas style gaming, including all of your favorite games such as blackjack, craps and roulette. Over 300 attendees take part in this incomparable evening of dancing, sophistication and elegance.
MMD is seeking donations to be used for auction prizes and/or sponsorship for this event. Ourvision for sponsors of Stand Beside Me is that not only will your tax-deductible contributions support Denver’s underserved youth, but that your business will be well recognized for your valuable role as a community leader. Please don’t hesitate to contact Carolyn Misage for more information.
When do tickets go on sale?
Admission is $100 per person ($50 tax deductible) and includes hors d’oeuvres, drinks, a sit down three course dinner, inspiring student and keynote speakers, auction and gaming. Organizers also invite “silent players” to purchase tickets to support the organization even if they are unable to attend.
