Tumor Hater – $7,592 Raised
Welcome to Gamble For Good! I came up with this idea after running a casino night for SOHumane.org where we rented a few blackjack tables and a dealer from a company that runs casino events. The price tag for that event made me think, what about rallying local friends to create a volunteer based group that would run these events for a low flat fee? Then take the money from that event, invest in new tables/cards/chips so that the next event would be that much better!
So now what?

Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
