The non for profit organization Neat Stuff, Inc. is ready to host its 2nd annual Casino Night fundraising event on Saturday, January 28, 2012 from 7:00PM to 11:00PM at the newly renovated Coral Gables Country Club. Last year’s Casino Night was a smashing success as over 250 guests danced, mingled, and “gambled” for a great cause. This year the Neat Stuff Casino Night Event will amaze guests as specialty entertainment will take this this event to the next level. Neat Stuff is set once again bring “Las Vegas” style fun to help raise funds for an amazing organization that aids South Florida youth.
Neat Stuff, Inc. was founded in 1995 with the missionto provide free new clothing and school uniforms to abused, neglected, abandoned and other at-risk children. Neat Stuff was created by local community child advocate Phyllis Krug, who identified a critical need for children involved in the social services system. Today, under the direction of Executive Director Franklin Monjarrez the organization is proud to be the only agency of its kind in South Florida proudly serving an average of 8,000 at-risk children and distributing over $.7 million worth of new clothes, school uniforms and accessories annually. The major story is not just what they do but how they do it.
Neat Stuff for Kids which has been dubbed “the little engine that could” by Franklin raises its funds from the private sector with no Government help which presents its challenges. Neat Stuff works hard to create strong relationships within community while running a very lean and efficient operation. The agency has been recognized by being awarded the prestigious Four-Star rating by Charity Navigator for its sound fiscal management. The annual Neat Stuff Casino Nigh event was the brain child of Franklin as a way to expose the agency and the work they did with members of the community through a fabulous event. The Casino Night fundraising event is an opportunity for others to jump on “little engine that could” while having a great time.
The 2nd annual Neat Stuff Casino Night is planned to be a grand night of Las Vegas style fun. Glamorous Las Vegas style show girls will be lining the red carpet as you enter the Coral Grand Ballroom. After registration you will receive your “play money” and off to the tables you go. The event will feature a full open bar to help you complete your transition into the “Sin City” state of mind. Blackjack dealers will be on hand to put your skills to the test while you sip on a crisp vodka martini. If cards are too laid back for your preference then get your adrenaline pumping while fellow gamers roar with every roll of the dice on the craps table. The roulette table is sure to be popular as participants decide what to bet only moments before the dealer flicks the ball into the spinning wheel. If the tables aren’t the fancy or just taking a break between bets guests are encouraged to take part in the fabulous silent and live auction. Music will fill the air as guests move to the rhythm with cocktails in hand. Palates will be pleased as guests will be able to enjoy an exquisite buffet throughout the evening. No Las Vegas style event should be without specialty entertainment which is what our guests should expect as one of South Florida most in demand performers will be on hand to make the 2nd annual Neat Stuff Casino Night an event to remember.
The 2nd annual Neat Stuff Casino Night is sure to be a spectacular event but more importantly it is an event to bring people together for the sake and welfare of less fortunate children in our community.
