SAB Hosts Annual Casino Night Event for Family Weekend

SAB Casino Night WeekendThe Student Activities Board (SAB) hosted their annual Casino Night event on Saturday, Nov. 4 in Wilson Hall.

Taking place during family weekend, students and their parents had the opportunity to attend and take part in different casino-themed activities.

The event started at 7:30 p.m. and ended at approximately 10:30 p.m.

Emily Marsh, a junior marketing student and Festivals Chair for SAB, pot together the event. “I was in charge of picking a theme, getting decorations, making schedules for the student dealers, and assembling the prize baskets. The event was attended by over 100 people and was a huge success in my opinion. You could really tell that people were having fun with their families and enjoyed being there,” she said.

Some of the games attendees could play included blackjack and poker.

There were both door prizes and giveaways for those attending to have the opportunity to win.

“I think my favorite point of the night was when we did the drawing for the grand prize, an Apple Watch, and the girl who won was so happy that she literally cried. Overall, I am happy with how the event went. I’m new to the executive board for SAB and this was my first event so I had a lot of help from my advisors and fellow board members; I couldn’t have done it without them,” Marsh continued.

Lindsay Smith, Advisor of SAB and Assistant Director of Student Activities, thought the event was perfect for family weekend. “The event was wonderful. SAB and the Festivals Chair, Emily, did a great job planning and executing the event. The vendors and DJ (Lu-Ann from CSSE) were great and provided an awesome experience for all who came,” she said.

“I think all parents and students really enjoyed the games, food, prizes, and music in Wilson Hall that night,” Smith continued.

Amber Galati, a sophomore accounting student and Travel and Tour Chair and Comedy Chair for SAB, was one of the members who participated in dealing games of blackjack. “Casino Night was a great success. Emily, our Festivals Chair, did a great job planning the event. It felt like I was in a real casino dealing blackjack,” she said.

“The atmosphere of the event was exhilarating because everyone was having a fun time with gambling with the poker chips they were given and having the opportunity to win big prizes! I had a great time and can’t wait for next year’s Casino Night,” Galati concluded.

As one of SAB’s biggest events according to Tianna Fougeray, Novelties Chair for SAB, Casino Night lived up to its reputation from previous years and was a fun night for both students and parents during Monmouth’s family weekend.
