Before walking the stage together Sunday at the Ford Center, the PTSA is hosting Casino Night on Thursday for seniors to enjoy one last night together. 

The event will be held at Hyatt Regency Frisco starting at 7 p.m, and participants will be given a pink and red ticket upon entrance. 

“The red ticket they were given will be used for random raffle prizes during gaming, and they will cash the pink ticket in for chips worth $1000,” Senior PTSA Co-Chair Wendy Lawton said.

Aside from the gaming activities, at the end of the night a raffle will be held with the tickets earned where every participant will receive a prize. 

 “At 10pm when gaming stops, seniors will cash their winnings in for tickets,” Lawton said. “They will take these tickets and put them in sacks corresponding to the numbers on the prizes that they want to have a chance to win. Seniors can only win 1 prize each until all seniors in attendance have won a prize. At that point a general drawing for the remaining prizes will begin.”

Prizes include a TV, microwave, Keurig’s, portable speakers, and waffle makers. Students planning to attend must RSVP here
