* Vegas Comes to Durham at the HNC Casino Night *

Fortunately, what happens in Durham doesn’t stay in Durham! Hemophilia of North Carolina hosted our 6th Annual Casino Night on March 5th at Bay 7 in Durham. It was a tremendous success with over $41,000 in income tallied in just one night. The proceeds will be used to support programs and services throughout the state in an effort to provide opportunities for those affected by bleeding disorders.

The evening featured professional entertainment casino dealers from Casino Party Aces along with live entertainment by a quintet from the UNC Chapel Hill Jazz Band. In addition to the excitement at the craps, roulette, blackjack and poker tables, silent and live auctions took place over the evening. Through generous donations and hard work by the planning committee, we were able to offer some wonderful items, including an Asheville getaway, Richard Petty Driving Experience, collection of vintage china, and a unique antique wooden music box. The live auction was fast-paced and fun as George Miles whipped the crowd into a bidding frenzy!

For a donation, guests were invited to participate in a Grand Prize Raffle drawing. The lucky winner will enjoy a two-night stay in a cottage at the beautiful Chetola Resort at Blowing Rock. We would like to thank the resort for their generous donation.

Attendees were treated to a delicious palette of food provided by Catering Works. The cupcake pops were a big hit with the crowd! Everyone also stayed well hydrated with a terrific selection of wines and a wide variety of beer to fit every taste that was generously donated by Yellow Tail, Tyler’s Taproom, and an anonymous beer connoisseur.

As the clock wound down, those attendees who were lucky enough to have chips left over cashed them in for tickets and chances to win some great door prizes. Not many people left empty handed as a wide array of items were distributed to the crowd.

A very special thank you to our sponsors, guests, donors and volunteers who helped make the evening so successful. The HNC Board of Directors would also like to acknowledge the hard work and tireless effort of the planning committee that included Tiffany Holland, Ann Skinner, Tom Bennett and Charlene Cowell.
