Indian River County 4-H Foundation Hosts Annual Fundraiser to Raise Funds for Youth Programs
June 9, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$60.00
Mark your calendars for the Indian River County 4-H Foundation’s 11th Annual Fundraiser, “Viva Vero Beach,” featuring a Casino Night theme, to be held on Saturday, June 8th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at the Richardson Center at the IRSC Mueller Campus, 6155 College Lane.
Tickets are $60 per person and will include $2,500 in funny money for authentic casino games such as Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and Poker organized by Florida Casino Parties. Event proceeds benefit 4-H Youth in Indian River County.
The Indian River County 4-H Foundation recognizes volunteers, donors and patrons who have joined the revolution of responsibility in the local community and believe in the investment in today’s youth. Because of fundraising efforts like the annual 4-H Foundation Cocktail Party, the Foundation is able to assist 4-H’ers with expenses they incur throughout their 4-H careers.
The costs associated with local, state, regional and national level 4-H events can prohibit youth participation despite the exciting opportunities and educational benefits provided.
“The annual 4-H flagship fundraiser is a great way to support the positive development of our youth in Indian River County, while having fun!” says Jennifer Penn, Vice President of the Indian River County 4-H Foundation. “We look forward to bringing our 4-H supporters together to enjoy a “Vegas style” evening of food and drinks, entertainment and exciting raffle drawings while raising money for a cause to benefit our community.
Businesses and individuals have already come forward to sponsor the event or get involved by, donating raffle items or their time and services. Sponsorship levels available include High Roller, Royal Flush, Pit Boss, Jackpot and Card Shark. Sponsorships include recognition in all pre-event publicity and promotion at event while higher levels include the opportunity to sponsor a gaming table, receive complimentary event tickets and extra fun money for gambling. High Roller sponsors will even see their logo on the funny money that will pass through the hands of all guests throughout the night.
