Mothers’ Club Hits the Jackpot with 2019 Casino Night

February 1, 2019

The CBA Mothers’ Club once again hit the jackpot with their fifth annual Casino Night.

Ready to socialize and vie for a chance to win the evening’s prize offerings, over 300 CBA parents, alumni and friends packed Battleground Country Club last Saturday night for the Club’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Casino Night featured an evening of three-card poker, blackjack, roulette, craps and several more games. Raffle tickets were won in lieu of cash for a chance to win amazing prizes that were generously donated by faithful CBA supporters.

When the night was all said and done, the event raised over $46,000. The funds raised will be contributed to the Mothers’ Club scholarship donation, which assists current and future students.

In total, there are currently 220 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.

“The impressive, fun night was planned by our dedicated chairpersons, Trish Hansen, Judy Ottignon and Maureen Prado Roberts, and we can’t thank them enough,” Club President Lisa Murray said. “Our wonderful chairpersons and committee members are very grateful to all of our generous sponsors and underwriters who helped to make the night a tremendous success. The Mothers’ Club is thankful for the support of everyone involved to make the evening truly lovely.”
