      All,

      Please let me know if you are attending and I can put your name on the security gate access list.

      We have had a great response from local businesses and corporate sponsorship.  We have close to $5,000 in prizes!
       
      For $25 food, beer, and wine are included in the price of entry.
       
      We also have a poker tournament that costs $40/person.

      See you soon.

      Thanks,

      Rodney

      Subject: 2nd Annual Coast Guard Island Casino Night - CWOA/CPOA Fund Raiser

      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 attendance.

      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 questions.

      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)

      v/r,

      Rodney
