CASINO NIGHT TO BENEFIT THE LILHOLT FAMILY & THE HEART OF THE CATSKILLS
Spend a night at the casino for a chance to win great prizes!
01/13/2012 - The Catskill Ladies Association to Support & Inspire (CLASI) is planning a Casino Night on Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. at the American Legion in Delhi. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the benefit will be donated to the Heart of the Catskills Humane Society and the other 50 percent to the Lilholt Family of Delhi.
Tables will be set up to play blackjack, roulette, 3-card poker and the clacker wheel. A $10 donation gets you 100 dollars worth of chips to play with. At the end of the night, you cash in your chips for raffle tickets and a chance to win great prizes in the Chinese Auction. Tons of prizes are available to win, you just need to come and play! We have spa gift certificates, Glimmerglass Opera tickets, ski passes, a Cardio Club gym membership, gift certificates to local restaurants and more!
"We are looking forward to a C.L.A.S.I. Casino night! We hope to raise lots of money to assist one of our members families as well as make a donation to the Heart of the Catskills" says C.L.A.S.I. President Raegan Reed. "We hope everyone will come out to support two worthwhile causes and have some fun at the casino."
The mission for the CLASI group is to enrich our community and build friendships and that is exactly what the group has done since its inception in June of 2010. Since its start, C.L.A.S.I. has raised over $16,000. Donations have been made to Hospice Camp Forget Me Not, 2 local scholarships, Delaware Opportunities Safe Against Violence program, the Delhi Pool Fund, and the United Way in support of recent flooding in Delaware County.
On Nov. 11, 2011 the United Way of Delaware and Otsego Counties presented CLASI with a certificate for "Exceptional Community Service 2011 Disaster Relief". Laura Stewert, a CLASI member, received the honor. Laura said the recognition came as a complete surprise and she felt a great sense of pride on behalf of the women's group. CLASI raised over $400 for area flood relief at the Harvest Festival in Delhi from a bake sale and pumpkin painting for the children. There was also a donation vase placed on the table and the community came out in full support by dropping their donations in the vase. The members of CLASI continued to be inspired by this community and their generous support!
