P.G. Chambers School 8th annual Casino Night

P.G. Chambers School recently hosted their 8th annual Casino Night at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park, and #HipNJ has the scoop!

The theme of the night was “Then and Now,” and guests were encouraged to dress in 1920’s attire. Attendees showed up sporting their “glad rags” and ready to have a great time.  

Guests mingled and tried their luck at the craps, roulette, and blackjack tables. Casino games were presented by Class Act Casino. Also, there was a silent auction with packages appealing to everyone, from the wine-lover to the fashionista.

“We are so grateful to the local businesses that supported the affair and played a tremendous role in helping us raise funds to support the students at PGCS,” the school stated on their website.

Charity auctioneer CK Swett was there to auction off prize packages and raise funds for the school. Guests raised their bid paddles to pledge support and demonstrate their commitment to the mission and vision of P.G. Chambers School.

“The importance of these gifts cannot be over-stated; we need our donor community in order to continue providing the innovative programs that we have at PGCS,” the school stated. If you were not able to attend and are compelled to lend your support, click here.

The mission of P.G. Chambers School is to help children lead full, productive lives; develop confidence in their own abilities; and engage fully and frequently in the community. To learn more, click here.
