Casino Night 2007

Pin It

Texas Hold ‘Em, held ‘em. Chances are… Many chances were taken at the Roulette Wheel and the Craps table. Everybody played the hands they were dealt at the Blackjack tables…

In other words… Everyone attending the Library Foundation’s Casino Night, held at the Casino-In-The-Park on a beautiful Spring evening in Lincoln Park, had a wonderful time!

This 4th annual major fundraiser of the Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation attracted a large crowd, despite the fact that several non-profit organizations in Jersey City held their fundraisers on the same night, Thursday, April 19.

“This event was our most successful yet,” said Library Director and Foundation Executive Director Priscilla Gardner.

Sixteen dealers in tuxedos (or croupiers, if your casinos are in Europe), one pit manager, and a total of 13 gaming tables created an Atlantic City feel, all the fun and excitement without Parkway traffic.

All proceeds benefit purchase of a new, state-of-the-art, ADA-compliant Bookmobile.

The Jersey City Free Public Library Foundation, Inc. Board of Trustees are: Kevin Ward, Chairman; Morris Winograd, Vice Chairman; Michael Ryan, Treasurer; Joseph Panepinto Jr., Corresponding Secretary; Elizabeth Spinelli, Recording Secretary; and Members, Joseph Turula, Kirsten Micco, Samantha Newman-Webster, Kathleen Hartye and Robert Burke.
