Transcript Casino Night RHA brings Mardi Gras to Houston On February 13, the UC's Houston Room was temporarily transformed to a glamorous casino hall for the RHA's 21st annual Casino Night. This year's theme was Mardi Gras. Over 300 people participated in the mock gambling and fun. For a $5 donation, players received $1500 in casino money and could play games like blackjack, poker, craps and roulette, or just watch the jazz band, Expressions, perform. "Casino Night is a popular program on campus because the basic idea behind it is to have fun," said Jerry Alwais, RHA president. Prizes were raffled off, and at the end of the night several prizes, including records, comedy club tickets, restaurant gift certificates, a Houston Oiler pennant, autographed by Jack Pardee, and a two night hotel package were auctioned off to the highest bidders. All proceeds went into a scholarship fund for Camp Cougar, a summer camp held on campus for mentally retarded children and adults in Houston. Camp Cougar was sponsored by the Mental Health and Mental Retardation Authority of Harris County and UH's Residence Halls. Among the guests this year were several campers from last years' Camp Cougar. "It was real exciting to see the kids out there this year," said Camp Cougar Programmer and RHA member Ruben Cantu. "The kids enjoyed attending and I think a lot of students got to meet the people their money was going to help." The planning took five months and many volunteers helped to put on the event. Matthew Mucker, Casino Night director, led the volunteers to a successful event. "I am very proud of everyone involved. It took a few struggles and a lot of hard work, but everything went great," said Mucker. -Jerry Alwais Rolling dice to raise money for Camp Cougar, a summer camp held for handicapped people, one gambler tries his luck at Kraps during Casino Night.
