Casino Night

Tonight our church had a casino night. I t was a blast. We ate, drank, caught up with old friends and of course- gambled.

We were given $100 in funny money. Boy, I am a risk taker when it isn't real!
Roulette's my game.
At the end of the evening we cashed in our chips for raffle tickets.
The raffle tickets were for the Chinese auction. ( some call it a silent auction, a tricky tray, or just plain old basket raffle!)

So my husband and I had a bunch of tickets and we only had about ten minutes to put them in the raffle buckets in front of each gift basket. There were some great baskets too. Some were filled with wine and restaurant gift certificates, others had candles and home accessories.

The Only basket I wasn't interested in was the "game night" basket. It was huge and filled with about 10 board games, all of which we have... and never play.

Guess which one we won?

I couldn't believe it. I knew my husband had put a ticket in accidentally and we had joked that we trying to get rid of games not bring more in.

Oh well.

That would be my luck! I'm sure you can find some shelter who could use it.

Time to put your game face on and start playing!
Figures, I had this happen to me before. We got a basket filled with purple Baltimore Ravens stuff! Gave it all away, except for the wine!
XOXO
