The Dallas Stars Foundation will hold the 16th Annual Casino Night presented by Park Place Lexus and Park Place Jaguar on Feb. 25 from 7 to 11 p.m. at Park Place Lexus in Plano. The annual event, which raises money to support the charitable causes of the Dallas Stars Foundation, features Dallas Stars players, coaches, front office, staff members and personalities serving as casino dealers at tables throughout the evening.
"Every year our players, coaches and Stars family have Casino Night circled on their calendar as a really fun night to help the Dallas Stars Foundation raise much needed monies to fund its youth scholarships, annual playground build, grants to our non-profit partners, and school-based programs like Stick with Reading and Fitness Stars," Dallas Stars Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Dallas Stars Foundation President Jason Farris said. "Casino Night is the largest annual fundraiser for the Dallas Stars Foundation which last year put over a half million dollars back into North Texas communities."
One of the Dallas Stars Foundation's most attended events every year, this year's Mardi Gras-themed event will for the first-time feature live music from Hale Baskin and Her Jazz Addiction. Attendees will be able to participate in a silent auction, which features autographed memorabilia, including jerseys from current and former Dallas Stars players, along with unique experience packages such as the opportunity to travel with the Stars to an away game. Guests will be treated to a Cajun style buffet from Cool River Cafe, have the opportunity to take part in a Jack Daniel's Whiskey Tasting along with a diamond bar provided by J. Patrick Diamonds, Inc.
