“Hearts for Hemophilia” – Casino Night 2011

Saturday January 22, 2011
Museum of Natural Sciences
Raleigh, NC

A Fun and Festive 2011 Casino Night!

Hemophilia of North Carolina (NHC) hosted our fourth annual “Hearts for Hemophilia” Casino Night event on Saturday, January 22nd at the scenic Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh. Fortunately, there was no luck involved that the event continues to grow in attendees and proceeds. This was made possible through the hard work of our planning committee, generous sponsors and those who attended the event.

Each guest was greeted by our terrific team of volunteers and received their $10,000 in ‘funny money’ play chips to ready themselves for play at the gaming tables, which included blackjack, craps, roulette and poker. Guests were able to enjoy delicious food throughout the evening and an open bar of beer & wine. The ever-popular quintet from the UNC-Chapel Hill Jazz Band entertained us through the evening.


Our dealers were terrific and provided plenty of entertainment for the crowd. At the end of the night, we had lots of winners that cashed in their chips for raffle tickets and a chance to win some great prizes. For a donation, guests were invited to participate in a Grand Prize Raffle drawing donated by our sponsor, the Grove Park Inn & Spa. The winner received an overnight stay at the beautiful resort along with breakfast for two.

Throughout the night, silent auction items were displayed and made available by very generous donors. At the end of the evening, a live auction was held for signed pottery, a weekend stay at a B&B and an opportunity to donate to Camp Carefree and Send a Kid to Camp. The auction is always lively thanks to auctioneer and fellow member, Terry Lamb, who did an amazing job of working the bids from the crowd!

A lively Auction

The live auction featured a vintage jewelry collection, a sports memorabilia package, a beautiful handmade quilt, a beach house vacation in Ocean Isle, an overnight stay and dinner at Harrah's Cherokee Casino & Hotel and a stunning hand designed amethyst necklace. Auctioneer and fellow member, Terry Lamb, did an amazing job of working the bids from the crowd!

The night concluded with a very special thank you to our sponsors, guests, organizing committee and volunteers. Each attendee received a special gift of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies donated by Sweet Tomatoes as a thank you for their support and being our guest for the evening. The night raised over $30,000 for Hemophilia of North Carolina and proceeds will help us to continue our goal of promoting opportunities to improve the quality of life for those affected by a bleeding disorder. It is our vision for everyone to achieve their full potential without barriers or limitations, until a cure is found. Those that supported our event continue to make this vision a reality.

A very special thank you to the many individuals, organizations and companies for their continued support of this event and Hemophilia of North Carolina.
