We can't wait for you to join us at The Brownstone on Friday, March 22nd for our Ninth Annual Casino Night — one of NJCDC's most fun events of the year! Guests will enjoy playing a variety of casino games throughout the evening, including craps, roulette, and blackjack. The event will also feature an open bar, a buffet dinner, and a dessert extravaganza! At the end of the night, guests will exchange their chip winnings for raffle tickets towards a number of exciting prizes.

While Casino Night is an evening of fun for our guests, it is also a very important event for NJCDC and those we serve. All money raised through the event will directly support our work of preparing Paterson youth for college. Throughout the year, we offer tours to top universities, college fairs, college scholarships, and numerous youth development programs, all of which strive to make college graduation an achievable goal for the 8,000 children living or going to school in our neighborhood of Paterson.

We've seen great results so far! In the past few years, program alumni have attended numerous prestigious universities, including Barnard College, Columbia, Georgetown, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and Yale — often with full scholarships! But we can only continue to provide these college readiness opportunities with the support of friends like you who want to bet on a bright future for Paterson—and its youth.

We're also looking for more great items to include in our raffle. If you're interested in donating a prize, or would like more information about becoming a sponsor or purchasing tickets, please contact Valerie Trawinski at 973-413-1608 or
