Brunswick Senior Resources Inc., Brunswick Family Assistance and the Ocean Ridge Charities Association, Inc. are teaming up to present a second annual Casino Night for Charity. The evening event will benefit Brunswick County charities.

“This is a very worthwhile event in which people can support local nonprofit community charities while coming out for a night of fun,” said Mike Gildea, president and founder of Ocean Ridge Charities Association, Inc. He added, “Our goal is to exceed the almost $7,500 we raised for Brunswick County charities from the 2016 event.”

The games will be at the Supply Senior Center, 101 Stone Chimney Place, in Supply.

Unlike Vegas, no real money is won as a result of gaming. With the purchase of each $50 admission ticket, all players will receive $10,000 in “fun money” to use at the gaming tables. Players then exchange their winnings for raffle tickets. At the end of the evening, players distribute their tickets between the grand prizes of their choice.

There are also three types of sponsorships for the event: $500, $250 and $100. Sponsorships opportunities are still available, so if you wish to be a part of this fundraiser, please call Debra Marlowe (910) 754-2300.

Tickets are available at the Shallotte Senior Center, 3620 Express Drive in Shallotte and the Supply Senior Center, 101 Stone Chimney Road in Supply. You can also purchase tickets online via Paypal or credit card at:

Additionally, Brunswick County Senior Resources Inc. invites you for a day of learning about the services and resources available to seniors in Brunswick County.

This event is Friday, October 13, starting at 8:45 a.m. Meet vendors and enjoy refreshments. Jim Fish, President/CEO, will present an overview of the many great things happening for seniors at BSRI. Lunch will be provided.
