Goal for the Life Night:
The goal of this Night is to have an enjoyable time with the teenagers by creating an environment to compete – just for fun – in casino style games.
Life Night at a Glance:
This social Night will bring in tons of teenagers. Games like Texas Hold ’Em, Blackjack, and other casino style games are becoming ever more popular. Our intent with this Night is not to encourage gambling, it is simply to have fun. There will be no monetary betting but there will be small prizes. The teenagers will bet play money and will cash in their winnings for prizes at the end of the Night. If you really want to do this Night up well, you can look into local companies that will rent you casino equipment (i.e. roulette wheels, tables, etc.), depending on your parish budget. The CORE members can be the dealers and servers for the Night. Set a limit for the amount of play money that each teen will receive and then set up a concession stand for them to use their play money to buy refreshments. You can charge a set fee of $5 per person and give the teens $50 worth of play money.
