Casino Night Rings Up Food For Needy
March/ Dake Hall at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will host a " Casino Night" beginning at 9 p. m. Friday, Nov. 30.
The hall council organized the event to collect donations for the campus food bank and to give students a chance to mingle outside of class. Each resident will receive fake money for each food item they donate. At the end of the evening, students will use their " winnings" to bid on items donated from area businesses. All food collected will be given to the South Dakota Tech food bank that distributes items to needy students.
“ Our goal is to stock the food pantry with enough food that no person will have to go hungry during this holiday season,�� hall director Derek Gackle said.
McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway, Hardees, Coca- Cola, The Buckle, Tech Bookstore, Malone Engineering, Dodge Town, Toyota, Harley- Davidson, KFC, KOTA, Bridgestone/ Firestone, and Dairy Queen have donated items to the event.
