Raising Fun and Funds on a Casino Trip Adventure
Our Vibrant Seniors Events casino adventure to Primm, Nevada last Saturday was a big success! Not only did we have a great time visiting three casinos, loads of shopping, and a roller coaster, but we also raised $1,200 for the African American Firefighter Museum. AAFM is dedicated to collecting, conserving, and sharing the heritage of African American Firefighters through collaboration and education. These much-needed funds will assist the museum in sharing their educational programs with the public, as well as support preservation of the museum and its collections. Forty-five jubilant folks rode in a luxury motor coach to Buffalo Bill’s Resort and Casino. On the way, we had loads of fun. Did you know we had prize giveaways on the trip? Indeed we did: an iPad Mini, 2 tickets to see the Los Angeles Clippers, 2 tickets to the Dodgers vs Angels game, a gift certificate to the Cheesecake Factory, scratch-off lottery tickets, tee-shirts, and more!
One of the AAFM board members was kind enough to prepare margaritas and sangrias for the group – delicious! This was one of the highlights of the trip. The drinks brought smiles and laughter. Of course, the people near the ice chest full of drinks were the happiest!
Lady Luck was with us at the casinos. One of our adventurers won $200 and another won $500 – that’s what we call lucky! And what do you know – 22 of our fellow adventurers already signed up for the next casino fundraising trip. We’ll do it all over again on November 14, 2015. Get ready to raise more fun and funds!
