    Hello everyone,
    First off I want to thank everyone for their past support of the Golden Gate
    Chapters of the U.S. Coast Guard Chief Warrant Officers Association (CWOA)
    and the Chief Petty Officers Association (CPOA). Last year's first annual
    Casino night event was a big, big success in our CG community.

    On Saturday, 16 April the CWOA & CPOA are hosting our 2nd Annual Casino
    Night fund raiser on Coast Guard Island, although the event is not open to
    the public it is open to military (active or retired) and their friends. I
    consider all of you friends of the CWOA and the Coast Guard family and
    request you forward this invitation throughout your associations. We are
    also having a ninety person poker tournament and I would not mind testing
    some of your skills. This is a first class event, the CWOA and CPOA hired a
    professional Casino company to run the tables and we put together an
    exceptional menu for the buffet. New to this year's event is we have added
    a Red Carpet to serve as a background for Major sponsor's logo's and guests
    photo opportunities. This year the event was moved to the CG Island gym and
    we are expecting 400 guests this year, last year almost 300 were in

    As always Casino night serves as way for our CG family and friends to spend
    a fun evening together socializing and raising money to support the Chief
    Warrant Officers Association, Chief Petty Officers Association, and the East
    Bay Coast Guard Spouses Association. But it also serves as a way for local
    businesses and associations to introduce themselves to our CG community. At
    least twenty-five percent of our active duty members are new to the area
    every year so it is a great opportunity for any business to participate.

    Please review the attached flyer and contact me directly if you have any

    I have also attached a donation letter if someone or business wants to
    donate a raffle prize or sponsor one of the Casino tables. You know me, I
    will always accept gifts and pass them along to the crew. But it is
    definitely not a requirement, I really want all of you in attendance.

    Just a little FYI about the night:
    There will be:
    Three - Roulette tables
    Three - Craps tables
    Ten - Blackjack Tables
    One - 'Let it ride' table
    One - 'Casino War' table
    One - 'Three card poker' table

    Poker Tournament:
    10 poker tables (i.e. 90 Seats available)
