Transcript Casino Night Mardi Gras sets gambling mood Casino Night '89 A Mardi Gras Extravaganza was sponsored by the Residence Halls Association and was a smashing success, with more than 1,500 people attending. The event raised nearly $5,000. All the proceeds of the event benefited Camp Cougar, a program held on campus every summer for the mentally retarded citizens of Harris County. This year's players were given $1 million in play money to gamble on such games as blackjack, chuck-o- luck, craps, poker and roulette. "I had a great time stitting there gambling money that was not mine. You can lose the money and not feel guilty about it," resident Page Bangs said. Dealers for the games included residents, Greeks and other student organizations. The volunteer involvement of many student organizations contributed to the success of Casino Night '89. "People working at the event were enthused and having a great time. This added to the fun of the evening," player Ken Steinhaurer said. Also adding to the fun and excitement was the festive gala atmosphere. The decorations, which included streamers and over 4,000 balloons in green, purple and gold, magically transformed the Houston Room of the University Center into a casino with a Mardi Gras theme. The 16th annual Casino Night proved to be fun for all. Prizes were won throughout the evening by players that tried their luck at keno. These prizes included a trip for two to the Baham- mas with hotel and airfare. At the end of the evening, those who were not smiled upon by Lady Luck were given a chance to bid in an auction on some other fantastic prizes such as a sailing trip and weekend hotel accomodations. All prizes were donated by area businesses. RHA hopes for this event to be a continued success and to raise more money for Camp Cougar in the years to come. "RHA's goals will be reached. The generosity of the Houston businesses and the willingness of the students to help out is overwhelming!,'' Luzie Keierleber, chairperson of prize solicitation, said. ► Janey Willkomm 200 ■ Residence Halls
