The 275 attendees at Chicago Gateway Green’s Annual Gaming for Green event were all smiles. Hosted at the stunning Galleria Marchetii, guests gathered to compete in a poker tournament and try their hand at blackjack, craps, and roulette. For spectators and social butterflies, four chic lounge areas, designed by Roy’s Furniture, offered the perfect spot to enjoy the Galleria Marchetti’s signature Italian dishes and a specialty cocktail from the open bar beneath the venue’s sparkling chandeliers.
Meanwhile, the poker tournament was heating up. 150 players gathered to compete for the grand prize: a $1,500 seat at The Millionaire Match Poker Tournament and a 4 day, 3 night stay at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Other prizes included Chicago Cubs tickets, 2 domestic round trip tickets with Virgin airlines & 2 night hotel stay, and a staycation at The Hyatt Regency Chicago.
The amazing prizes weren’t limited to poker players. With a both a silent auction and casino raffle, everyone had an opportunity to try their luck at bringing home items like a VIP Entertainment package at Rivers Casino, Bears tickets, memberships to Chicago Athletic Clubs and Fitness Formula Club, and jewelry by Kendra Scott – just to name a few!
