On Saturday, March 3, 2018, DePaul College Prep hosted their annual Poker and Casino Night at the Montgomery Club for an evening filled with gourmet food, charitable casino gaming, a small poker tournament, and endless fun.
As guests arrived at The Montgomery Club with the sun shining bright, they were greeted with signature cocktails served by the Deep Eddy Vodka “Betty’s” and enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres including shrimp cocktail, seared tuna wonton, prime angus skirt steak skewers, stuffed mushrooms, mini crab cakes, and grilled lamb chops. Once inside, guests headed to the open bar they explored the full buffet with Gibsons signature items including fried calamari, double baked potatoes, grilled seasonal vegetables, and chef carved prime rib and roasted turkey.
Once their appetites were satisfied, guests browsed the never ending silent auction with top items including a Colorado Vacation Package, a VIP Air & Water Show Experience, and a Lake Michigan Private Yacht Cruise, just to name a few. Then it was on to the casino gaming tables where guests enjoyed an evening of fun on the blackjack, craps, and roulette tables to win raffle tickets which could win them many prizes such as $200 gift certificate to Hugo’s Frog Bar and Chophouse, a wine basket, and fully stocked packages including a Basketball Lovers Package, Cruise & Booze Package, Football Lovers Package, and many more!
Guests also had the opportunity to compete in a ‘All-in’ Raffle where the winner took home $5,000, a gift card raffle where winners took home a variety of gift cards, and a stack the deck raffle where 52 cards were sold, and the two winners could choose between Justin Timberlake concert Tickets or a Chicago Blackhawks suite for eight with food and drink!
Throughout the evening, a small poker tournament took place where poker players competed to win the top 9 prizes including a four-day, three-night stay at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, a custom suit and custom shirt from clothing sponsor Knot Standard plus a tie from Vineyard Vines, a 50” 4k Ultra HD Smart TV, an exotic car driving experience, Chicago Cubs and Bulls tickets, and two tickets to see Blue Man Group.
