On Friday, February 16, the USC Sumter Nettles Gymnasium will be transformed into a Las Vegas style casino and attendees will be playing for wonderful prizes donated by area businesses.
The Ante Up Casino Night sign-in will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Nettles Lobby. Game play runs from 7:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. with prize distribution at 10 p.m. Guests should dress to impress and bring their poker faces. Casino games such as black jack, craps, roulette, poker and bingo will be available to guests, where they can earn chips to win prizes. Guests will enjoy beer and wine, a signature drink, $500 in chips, a catered dinner and music to dance the night away.
All proceeds from the Ante Up Casino Night will benefit USC Sumter Athletics. Through this event, guests can help raise funds to support student athletes through scholarships, equipment improvements, facility enhancements and special programs.
Tickets are now available for purchase online. Cost to attend the event is $50 per person. Tickets are limited. Attendees must be at least 21 and dress is cocktail attire.
In addition to the casino games, guests can bid on various sports artifacts set up by a professional silent auction company. Door prizes from local businesses will be awarded throughout the night and bingo will be available for those wanting to play a different game.
Once tickets are purchased, a list will be created for the night of the event so no actual ticket is necessary.
Ante Up provides all the fun of a casino with no risk! Players get tickets based on their success at the games. Prizes are awarded through a "bag raffle," where players select the prize(s) they want to win by placing their tickets in a bag or box near the prize. And players don't even need to know what they are doing to have fun! The best time to learn games like craps, poker or roulette is early in the event, while others are still learning.
