First off I want to thank everyone for their past support of the Golden Gate Chapter of the U.S. Coast Guard Chief Warrant Officers Association (CWOA). On Saturday, 17 April the CWOA & CPOA are hosting our 1st 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 poker tournament that 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 exception buffet menu. From this 1st year and forward this event will serve 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.
I also want to give a special thank you to Mr. Bob Castle, Bob is the only civilian member of the Chief Warrant Officers Association and he let me know he was a member before I joined the Coast Guard twenty-two years ago. Thanks Bob...
Please contact me directly if you have any questions. There are a limited number of tickets because of the number of people that are authorized to be in the space (Pt. Welcome & Gresham Hall) so please don't delay.
I have also attached a sponsor 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:
Two Roulette tables
Two Craps tables
Eight Blackjack Tables
5 poker tables (i.e. 45 Seats available)
Thanks for your time,
