Transcript The History of Casino Night Where on campus can you go and play blackjack, roulette or craps, win great prizes like a hotel package or television and contribute money to a worthy cause? Why, the Residence Halls Association's annual Casino Night, of course! Started in 1972 by a group of dedicated residents, Casino Night began as a simple evening of fun and mock gambling in the residence halls, but quickly grew into a campus event attracting over a thousand people. After its first successful year, Casino Night began its twenty years of service to Camp Cougar, a summer camp for mentally retarded children and adults held on campus, by dedicating all proceeds raised to a scholarship fund for the camp. Casino Night grew in popularity and was moved from its home in Oberholtzer Hall Ballroom and into the University Center. Casino Night has raised in excess of $15,000 in some years and has include traditional gambling games, Mouse Races, talent shows, concerts and much more. Casino Night is a university- wide program that attracts residents and non-residents, faculty and staff, and even members of the Houston Community. This year, in an effort to bring Casino Night back to the residents, it was moved back into Oberholtzer Ballroom. The program was a great success and an enjoyable evening for all who attended. Casino Night ££lt was fun and everyone looked lovely." This proclamation by Freshman Beth Kwalewski is a good one sentence summation of Casino Night. The 22nd Annual Casino Night accommodated people partaking of such gambling activities as roulette, craps and blackjack. This year's theme was "A Night in Old San Francisco," with many reminders of that bygone time. Oberholtzer Ballroom was divided into four sections— Old Mexico, the Old West, the Wharf and Chinatown. To add to the festive mood, four dancing girls circulated among the guests, flirting with the high stakes players and making the whole evening enjoyable. "I liked it. The only thing I found wrong was that the whole gambling thing seemed pointless. I wish they had had the auction this year," commented Sophomore Larry Eshleman. An auction could not be held because of the UHPD edict and Texas Law. In the place of the auction, door prizes were awarded throughout the night. Prizes ranged from RHA T-shirts and AMC movie tickets to trading cards and a set of lingerie. Casino Night attracted a large crowd and managed to raise a tidy sum of money for Cougar Camp. "Camp Cougar is a one week summer camp sponsored by the Mental Health and Mental Retardation Association and UH," said Casino Night Organization Chair Carrie Hart. Casino Night allowed students a night to spend frivolously, dress-up, mingle and have a great time. Sophomore Spencer Hauenstein summed it up best, "I wish I could have won more money, but it was a lot of fun." -Jason Marchand Sophomore Dixie Aragaki plots to add to her blackjack winnings as A.J.
