Trying your hand a game of chance could land you prizes while helping a child in need.

Court Appointed Special Advocate has scheduled its Casablanca Casino Charity Night for 7-11 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Gainesville Civic Center.

Gamers can try their hand at tables of blackjack, craps and poker run by professional casino dealers. Each $50 ticket provides $100 in casino cash, with winners able to earn prizes. Food will be provided, along with entertainment by Sean VanMeter and the Vertigo Band.

A $5 raffle ticket offers a chance to win a free Nissan for a year, iPad or trip to The Inn in Highlands, N.C. A live and silent auction will be held for gifts that include vacations, collectibles, art, jewelry, pottery, services and spa packets.

All proceeds will benefit CASA, a nonprofit organization that helps abused children find safe, permanent homes. Last year, the organization served 439 children in Hall and Dawson Counties who were removed from their homes due to abuse.

Sponsors may call 770-531-1964. Business can advertise at the tables, on the website and invitations. Gold sponsors are $500, platinum $1,000 and diamond are $1,500. All proceeds are tax deductible.
