Germanna’s Scholarship Monte Carlo features roulette, slots, drinking, dancing–all without a trip to Sin City. Unless you consider Culpeper that.
The Germanna Educational Foundation brings a little bit of Las Vegas to Culpeper with its 18th Annual Scholarship Monte Carlo to be held on Saturday, April 21 at the Daniel Technology Center from 6 p.m.–11 p.m.
The black tie event has become one of the social events of the year for the area. The event features Las Vegas style “gambling” for prizes donated by local businesses includes roulette, craps, poker, slots, drinks, food, music, dancing and a live auction for items such as vacations in exotic locales, all for a $75 ticket that goes toward scholarships.
NEW THIS YEAR: Foundation Director Mike Catell has chartered a Martz Group bus for sponsors, their guests and individual ticket buyers. The bus will pick people up at the Gordon Road commuter lot off State Route 3 in Spotsylvania at 5:45 p.m. and will leave the Daniel Center at 10:30 p.m., after the auction. Plenty of seats are available and reservations may be made by calling 540/423-9060 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, April 18.
Monte Carlo Night raises money for the Germanna Guarantee Program. This program provides financial assistance to students who have the potential to succeed, and who need additional financial support, the opportunity to pursue and achieve their educational goals at Germanna. The program goal is to ensure that no student is denied access to an education because of financial need. During the current academic year, more than 100 Germanna students are receiving Germanna Guarantee scholarship funding because of the success of last year’s Scholarship Monte Carlo. This year’s goal is $120,000.
