2018 Casino Night Fundraiser

Join us on August 17 for a night of casino games, food, and drinks in support of Lighthouse's community outreach programs for youth and adults!

Not just poker, our 2018 fundraising event features blackjack, craps, roulette, scratch-offs and an auction. With lots of ways to win, plus food and drink, we’ll hit the fun jackpot as we raise money for important work.

Proceeds from Casino Night benefit our Hard Times and Writing to Be Free workshops for adults experiencing homelessness or transitioning out of incarceration. Funds raised will also help our youth programs, including our creative writing labs in Denver's public housing neighborhoods, at GLBTQ youth centers, and in low-income and Title I schools.

Plus: Get your tickets by July 4 and you’ll receive an extra chance in the end-of-evening prize drawing. Doors open at 5:30; games begin at 6:00.
