Play-A-Thon – Play more, give more, be merry!

Remaining true to our mission statement, Elite Casino Events is sponsoring a ‘Holiday Play-A-Thon’ on December 2, 2015.  The event by design is a celebration of life that will invite children and adults to come play, relax, and forget about life’s troubles for just one day.  The event is to benefit an 8-year boy named Brayden, recently diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome, or MDS, a bone marrow disorder.

Free to everyone! 

The event, hosted by local business leaders, who have by way of financial donations made the event free for everyone to attend! The ‘Play-A-Thon’ named, ‘Aces & Angels’, will offer fun interactive activities for children from 2 pm to 8pm, including fun crafts, painting, games and surprise visits by Superhero’s and everyone’s favorite princesses!

Let the games begin! 

Adult fun is all day – and really kicks off at 9 pm with a Karaoke contest until 11pm! There will also be an ongoing ‘Ugly Sweater’ an ‘Best Holiday Shoe’ contest. Entries will be able to post their pictures on social media, the contestant with the most likes as votes will win! Everyone’s favorite game – corn hole will be played all day to showdown ending about midnight. A red carpet photo booth will highlight the day, complete with fun photo props for everyone to enjoy! All of our hosts are casino professionals throughout Pittsburgh and surrounding areas and have designed a ‘Ninja Warrior Dealer’ course and a ‘King (or Queen) of Craps’ so that the nearly 1200 casino professionals can challenge their talents and skills against each other! Spectators will be able to play the casino games for fun and hopefully will learn some insider tips from the gaming professionals!  The (2) BIG winners, (The Ninja Dealer & The King or Queen of Craps), will be bringing home trophies & prizes to their workplace along with bragging rights – as the leaders in their field!

Playing to win against MDS

The event will host a live auction at 9:15 pm, with a Chinese auction all day ending at midnight – guests do not need to be present to win. There will be plenty of door prizes & raffles and the 50/50 raffle to benefit Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Food & non-alcoholic beverages are free to everyone; donations are accepted at the door to benefit Brayden Tipton’s family.  The family is asking those so inspired to bring one new toy unwrapped to the event, because the family would like to wrap them and give them to the children at Children’s Hospital for the Holidays! Please email [email protected] if you would like to sponsor or make a donation to this event. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!  To learn more about Brayden, please visit his Facebook page at Benefit for Brayden TiptonEveryone is invited to attend ‘Aces & Angels – A Holiday Play-A-Thon,’  and please bring the little ones, too! We ask that you R.S.V.P. your attendance to [email protected] and put (RSVP) in the title and add the total amount of adults & children in the email content.
