Lighthouse Auction

Monte Carlo Night (formally Texas Hold’Em Poker Tournament)

Originally conceived of by Poker-enthusiast parent volunteers, this fun event has been transformed into an evening filled with casino games, friends and music.  Prizes will be awarded to top five Texas Hold’em Tournament winners, while casino chips will be exchanged for raffle tickets that can be used to win fantastic items.
