Mothers’ Club Goes All In for 2020 Casino Night
January 30, 2020
The Christian Brothers Academy Mothers’ Club went “all in” for the sixth annual Casino Night last weekend.
Ready to socialize and vie for a chance to win the evening’s prize offerings, over 250 CBA parents, alumni and friends packed Battleground Country Club on Saturday night for the Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
Aside from the many gaming tables, including roulette, blackjack, craps, and three-card poker, a 52-chance game was added to the mix, with the winner receiving a new laptop. The wine pull and prize wheel were both terrific hits among the guests.
“Our Casino Night Committee co-chairs, Paula McKeon and Marybeth Kwapniewski, along with Maria McCann, club vice president, led the way to the success of Casino Night,” said club president Beth Caruso. “The evening flowed flawlessly, and a good time was had by all! There was so much positive energy and excitement throughout the ballroom from our guests.”
When the night was all said and done, the event raised over $35,000. The funds raised will be contributed to the Mothers’ Club scholarship donation, which assists current and future students.
In total, there are over 200 CBA students who receive approximately $1.5 million in scholarships and financial aid. While guests tried their luck at these games of chance, they were helping CBA continue its tradition of providing the one-of-a-kind education to all who wish to attend. The CBA Mothers’ Club is especially grateful that their sons are benefiting from the excellent CBA education, and they are eager to help CBA extend this opportunity to young men that otherwise could not afford to attend.
“With over 30 Casino Night Committee members and our Executive Board all working tirelessly prior to the event, the result of the evening was definitely impressive,” Caruso continued. “We are always grateful to those who helped with Casino Night, and especially thankful for the guests in attendance and sponsors, underwriters and ad journal contributors.”
