Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah to Host Second Annual Royal Flush Casino Night
January 17, 2020
Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah will present its Second Annual Royal Flush Casino Night on Thursday, Feb. 27, benefiting the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity.
The casino-themed party will take place at the Savannah Station, 601 Cohen St., and will feature heavy hors-d'oeuvres, an open bar, live music by the Mainstreet Dance Band and complimentary casino games including Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Texas Hold'em and Wheel of Fortune. Individual tickets for the event are $60; tickets for couples are $90. The tables will open promptly at 7 p.m.
Each guest will receive $15,000 in "funny-money" chips when they arrive. Additional chips may be purchased throughout the evening as guests will be able to put their chips towards raffle tickets for a drawing to win prizes worth more than $15,000, including $2,000 in cash. The greater a guest's winnings, the more tickets they may contribute to the drawings.
The goal of the fundraiser is to encourage guests to build up their winnings and go "all in" to support the local Habitat for Humanity. Last year's event enabled Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah to donate more than $7,500 to the charity of choice. Sponsorships are limited but still available. Those interested should contact Shantina Waldburg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"When we work alongside Habitat to bring people together to build homes, communities, and hope, we put God's love into action," said Sherry Daniel, owner of Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah. "We share Habitat for Humanity's vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live and are thrilled to be able to realize a partnership through this event. We encourage everyone to come out and have some fun with the knowledge that your exciting night out will truly impact someone's life."
Since 1983, Habitat for Humanity has provided homes for 151 Chatham County families. The organization plans to raise more than $400,000 in private donations this year which, when added to other funding it secures as well as its revolving loan fund, will result in the construction of another seven Habitat houses in 2020.
"Residents of Chatham County really know the value of homes in bringing us together as a community," said Brett Lundy, board president of the Coastal Empire Habitat for Humanity. "We are so grateful that Roto-Rooter is helping to lead the way as we build up the foundations of our community from inside the home, and how fitting a partnership."
