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, and scratch-offs. With lots of ways to win, plus food and drink, you’ll hit the fun jackpot plus have the chance to raise your hand to support important programs.

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.

Want to participate in our online auction? We've got items like writing retreats in the Taj Mahal & Himalayas (with Erika Krouse), Tuscany, and Ireland; dinner with a former Denver Bronco; and spa treatments up for grabs. Best of all, you can participate in the auction even if you're unable to attend Casino Night. Click here to see how it works!
