In response to the increased demand for food, Food Finders (a multi-regional food bank that serves as a conduit between food donors, service agencies and people in need) will host its first Casino Night fundraiser Friday, April 29.
Food Finders has hosted a number of fundraisers in the past, which support its continued efforts to feed the needy and homeless via its 260 partner agencies and shelters throughout Southern California, including the Greater Long Beach area.
“We’re starting an exciting new tradition with Food Finders while simultaneously marking our 22nd anniversary,” said Lisa Hoffmaster, fund development manager. “We’re encouraging the community to come out and celebrate with us.”
Featured at the event will be Blackjack, Roulette and Craps tables, along with a Wheel of Fortune and opportunity drawings. Guests can enjoy appetizers, desserts and a no-host bar as they play to win while listening to lively music.
Food Finders’ Casino Night will take place at the Bixby Knolls Expo Center, 4321 Atlantic Ave., with doors opening at 7pm. Plenty of free parking will be available.
Tickets to the event are currently on sale online at foodfinders.org, with prices set at $40 per person and $60 per couple. Each ticket purchase includes casino cash to spend. Plus, guests who bring an unused gift card as a donation will receive additional casino cash.
Sponsorships are available for any businesses that wish to participate. Contact Lisa Hoffmaster at (562) 598-3003 or [email protected] for more information.
