2019 Casino Night Fundraiser

Please join us--and try your luck--on Friday, September 13, with an evening of casino games, food, and drink, all to help a good cause--Lighthouse's Community Engagement programs.

Where: Grant Hall at Four Mile Historic Park, 715 S Forest Street, Denver 80246 (Just off Cherry & Exposition with plenty of free parking)

Doors (and bar) open at 5:30 PM, dinner at 6:00 PM, and the Casino closes at 10:00 PM. We’ll begin with a catered dinner and drinks and a short presentation during which you’ll have the chance to raise your hand to do more to support these important programs. Then we’ll open up the casino for the rest of the evening, featuring poker, blackjack, craps, roulette, and scratch-offs, with dealers who'll teach you how to play and win. At the end of the night, cash in your winnings for a chance to win coveted prizes.

Proceeds from Casino Night will help bring workshops and literary community to over 10,000 people in and around Denver including youth, writers of color, LGBTQIA+ writers, veterans, cancer patients, caregivers, people in transition or experiencing homelessness, plus fellowships for talented but financially challenged writers.

Tickets start at $80 and include dinner, drinks, and $500 in chips for the casino games. See all the ticket options, below. Can't make it but still want to contribute to the evening? You can donate here

With lots of ways to win, plus food and drink, you’ll hit the fun jackpot while helping youth and adults throughout our community transform their lives through creative writing.
