Mark your calendars! The 2015 Parkdale Casino will take place on Friday, April 17 & Saturday April 18, 2015 at the Elbow River Casino. The community casino is a great way to volunteer your time and support the community in which you live.
The casino runs over two days, with two shifts per day. This is a commitment of over 38 volunteers! There is no experience needed for any position and each position varies in responsibility. It is a great way to meet other members of your community, neighbors and even volunteer with a friend to catch up! The required positions are:
- General Manager
- Count Room
- Chip Runners
This fundraiser is a significant contributor to the Parkdale Community Association budget and provides many benefits to our community. The funds raised during this event provide the community with the funds to operate and maintain our facilities. In addition, these funds also contribute to our soccer program, building maintenance and administrative overhead.
Our last casino in August 2013 contributed close to $70,000 to the community bank account, and is the largest single fundraising event that the community undertakes. As this event occurs only once every 18 months, it is important that we properly support this casino with strong participation from the community.
It is always a challenge to recruit the number of volunteers required to make the casino a success. Parkdale requests your support!
