Bladen’s Bloomin’ Agri-Industrial and Bladen County Committee of 100 are teaming up to host Casino Night this Saturday.
Bladen County residents wanting something to do this Saturday are invited to attend the Casino Night at the Cape Fear Vineyard and Winery. The fundraiser event is presented by Bladen’s Bloomin’ Agri-Industrial (BBAI) and Bladen County Committee of 100.
BBAI and the Committee of 100 have teamed up again this year to host the annual fundraiser called “Casino Night.” Doors will open to the public at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Januray 18, 2020. The games will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $25 each.
There will be black jack tables, Roulette games, one table of Texas Hold’em and a craps table. The way the event works is the event tickets are exchanged for poker chips. The chips are used to play the games. At 10:30 p.m. the games will close. Then players exchange the chips won for raffle tickets. The raffle tickets are drawn for prizes from local merchants.
BBAI is a private, non-profit real estate and lending entity and much of the business conducted by the nonprofit is done with private companies. There is an array of investments BBAI has assisted with in Bladen County. The NC DMV Call Center, Bladen Healthcare-Bladenboro, Turnbull Lumber, Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery are only some of the businesses assisted by BBAI.
In 2017, BBAI announced it would strengthen their partnership with Bladen County and their objective with the county is to create jobs and investments for Bladen County and its’ citizens, according to Mr. Leon Martin, Board member of (BBAI).
In June 2019, the Committee of 100 celebrated major accomplishments in Bladen County at their annual meeting.
The Casino Night fundraiser gives Bladen County residents the opportunity to show their support for economic development in the county, according to event organizers.
