School Council Casino Fundraiser

CASINO FUNDRAISING EVENT

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 25th    

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 26th        

JACKPOT CASINO, RED DEER

The Friends of West Park Elementary Association has been granted another casino by Alberta Gaming on Saturday, November 25th and Sunday, November 26th, 2017.   We are in need of volunteers to sign up and work a shift on these dates.  It is being held at the Jackpot Casino which is a smoke free venue.

With your help, we should earn around $30,000.  The money from past casinos that WPE School Council has ran, has been used to enhance the education and experiences of all students at WPE.  It has been used for things like buying playground equipment, pencil sharpeners, the in-line skating program, learning carpets, new gym equipment, student recognition/awards programming, the swimming program, as well as field trip transportation, etc.  These programs are provided for our students at no, or low cost due to the support of our casino fundraiser.

No experience is necessary, as volunteers are given training at the casino on the day they start and will work alongside paid casino staff.  Support is given by the casino advisor during the shifts.

We are in need of a minimum 26 volunteers to fill positions in order to ensure the casino’s success.  We require a minimum of 13 positions per day.  Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age or older.  These positions include shifts on Saturday, November 25th from 1-7pm, 6:30pm-11:30pm, and 11:30pm-4:00am, then again on Sunday, November, 26th from 1-7pm, 6:30-11:30pm, and 11:30pm-3:00am.

If you or anyone you know is interested in finding out more or helping WPE in this vital fundraiser by volunteering, please text Jamie at 403-506-1002 or Melissa at 403-598-7778 or email

wpe-schoolcouncil@rdpsd.ab.ca by Friday, October 6th.

Thank you for your support and know that all proceeds from the casino go back to supporting our students at West Park Elementary School.
