Casino Fundraisers, Casino Night Charity Events and Charity Poker Tournaments by Show Biz Productions are a great way to raise money for your charity, non-profit group or organization while providing great casino fun and entertainment for your guests. We'll provide a complete casino event experience that's sure to put your donors in a good-and generous-mood!
We offer casino fundraising event services in Naples FL, Orlando FL, Northern VA, the greater Baltimore, MD Area and the Metro Washington D.C. areas.
Steve Phillips and SHOW BIZ PRODUCTIONS have been instrumental for over 35 years in assisting many charitable groups and associations with fundraising and social affairs.
Our experience has shown the most successful fundraisers to include cocktails, light buffet, or dinner, music, silent or live auction, and Casino entertainment. The ticket price should include the cost of the food, beverage, decor, music and casino entertainment. Local companies and corporations will often be willing to "sponsor" a gaming table. The amount you request is up to you, but whatever the donation, it adds to the profit line. Sponsorship should be recognized in your program, and with a tent card on their sponsored table ("This Table Sponsored By:____").
It is best to sell tickets in advance, and as guests enter, they should receive a small amount of "gaming" money to get them started. We will provide your group with gaming chips to sell at designated cashier tables. Our personnel are not permitted to handle money, and will direct your guests to the cashiers to purchase additional chips.
Since the object of gaming is to "win", and local laws do not permit redemption of chips for cash, donated prizes are the key to the amount of gaming your guests will be doing, and will be the barometer of the amount of funds raised. Winners can "cash in" their chips to our Croupiers (dealers) at the conclusion of the event, and receive raffle tickets or auction vouchers for prizes. Our Casino Night Procedure sheet goes into more detail regarding casino closing options.
Regarding prizes, many organizations solicit their members for donations and/or have their members solicit local merchants for prizes. Airline and travel agents are prospects for free travel, while area restaurants may be willing to donate dinners, athletic clubs - memberships, hotels - accommodations, salons/spas - services, etc..............
Show Biz Productions Croupiers (Dealers) are all professionally trained, and are extremely good at explaining the rules and methods of play at each game, thereby, making your guests more comfortable in participating.
$ 1 (*not sold individually)
$ 5 (minimum sale - can also do $10)
$ 25 (*or less)
$100 (*or less)
We suggest a minimum sale of $ 5.00- $ 10.00, and making the selling price of the Green Chip $ 20.00 - $ 25.00, and the Black Chip $75 - $100.00* See attached example from program insert.
The purpose in elevating the chip value, is to make the guests feel like "high rollers", as it is much more fun playing with "thousands" of dollars!
If you prefer, you can make it an even exchange: $1 will buy 1 white chip valued at $1, $5 will buy 1 red chip valued at $5, etc....
Show Biz Productions can supply not only a full casino operation, but can also enhance your function with our large inventory of props and decorations. We can create an entire theme, such as our elegant Monte Carlo Night, or our more fun spirited 1920's Speakeasy, or choose from a large selection of other themes : Western, Tropical, Riverboat, Mardi Gras, to name a few...., or we can simply add to the room decor with a customized welcome marquee in lights (42" x 30"), and our oversized (6' x 3') playing card cut-outs with chaser lights. We also provide backdrops for the stage or riser, cashier's booth, live trees with twinkle lights, and much, much more!
