poker chipsThe North Essex Chamber of Commerce (NECC) will host its fifth annual Casino Night on Friday, October 11, 2013 from 6 pm to 10 pm. This year’s theme is “Back To The Boardwalk”, celebrating New Jersey’s boardwalks.

This annual event will be held at the Upper Montclair Women’s Club, 200 Cooper Avenue, Montclair, New Jersey. Everyone is invited to join us at this event for an exciting variety of games, outstanding food, live music and great prizes. We invite guests to come in boardwalk casual attire and really feel like they are back on the boardwalk. Open to both Chamber members and the general public, Back To The Boardwalk Casino Night features a mix of casino games including roulette, craps, blackjack, Texas Hold ‘Em , and “The Big Money Wheel,” as well as fun arcade games.

“Celebrating our boardwalks at this year’s Casino Night”, said NECC President Roger Ochoa of Chyten Tutors in Montclair, “reminds us of how much we have to be proud of in New Jersey, especially after Hurricane Sandy last year. Casino Night has always been a great way for businesses to network in a social setting. For everyone, it’s just a lot of fun.”

A portion of the proceeds from this event benefit the NECC college scholarship program. The NECC Scholarship Fund is funded by several important fundraisers each year, one of which is Casino Night. Annually, several $1500 scholarship awards are available to chamber members and to chamber employees and their dependents. Most post-secondary educational programs are eligible. The deadline for application is the end of May 2014.

Businesses and individuals can support the NECC and the NECC Scholarship Fund by becoming a Casino Night sponsor. There is a range of sponsorship opportunities available from $50 to $2500. All levels of sponsorship include an ad in the Casino Night Ad Journal, and many provide additional exposure on the NECC website and in Casino Night materials. To date the sponsors are: Audience Pleasers, Spencer Savings Bank, NJ.Com, and n2 Publishing. The deadline to become a Casino Night Sponsor is September, 25, 2013.

The ticket price for the event is $65 until September 30th. On October 1st the price increases to $70 and, on the day of the event, the price will be $75.
