2019 Casino Night raises big money for scholarships

The postponement of Pirate Casino Night due to snow impacted the turnout, but the 2019 event proved to be a big success, grossing more than $31,000.

Pirate Casino Night is Peninsula College's signature fund raising event for athletic scholarships.

"Special thanks to all of the Pirate Boosters, corporate sponsors, event guests and all of the volunteers who put this all together," said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. "Jerry Allen and his crew at 7 Cedars Casino are unbelieveable. The setting in Club 7, the great food, the beverage, the service, the Blackjack Tables, it's all incredible."

"Donald Rollman did an great job coordinating the whole thing, with a lot of hard work and generous donations from Harry and Mary Hebert, from Kathy Murphy-Carey, and from Dr. Todd Haworth," Ross said. "Lindsay Fox also was great overseeing the outstanding registration crew and all the financials. And finally our student athletes, who were there representing 75 of their teammates, did a nice job assisting with the event and with their introductions. All in all it was just another great Pirate Casino Night."

Peninsula College's next fund raising opportunity is the annual Pirate Golf Tournament, set for June 1 at The Cedars of Dungeness Golf Course.
