MCC is offering an enjoyable night of make-believe gambling on Friday, February 26 in the College Center on its Edison campus. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; the games begin at 6:30 p.m.

“This event will be a lot of fun,” said Veronica Clinton, director of development and alumni relations at the College and executive director of the MCC Foundation. “In an exciting casino atmosphere, attendees will get$50 in fake chips that they can use to ‘gamble’ to win tickets to put in the tricky trays for terrific prizes and prize packages. Besides offering a wonderful time, this fundraising event will help the College continue its mission to support deserving students through greatly needed scholarships.”

The admission fee of $75 includes full dinner buffet, open bar (beer and wine) and $50 in fake gambling chips. Participants must be 21 years of age. The event is business attire.

Casino Night will include a visit by Alex “Cardman” Perricone, a 2011 MCC graduate, who will engage in card magic with the crowd.

“You have to see him to believe it,” Ms. Clinton said. “His artistry with cards is amazing.”
