Thanks to all of the parents, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, party-goers, and others who made the 2014 Monte Carlo Night a successful fundraiser for our athletes! Aside from a great party, the evening resulted in a total of over $9,000 raised for individual teams through ticket sales, and over $6,000 for Boosters to use to support one-time needs for teams as well as investments that benefit multiple teams. 2014 photos will be up soon, as will a survey so that we can get your feedback and make the event even better next year.
See below for more info on the 2014 event; this will be updated as Monte Carlo Night 2015 approaches...
The 10th Annual Amherst Monte Carlo Night in support of the High School Athletics program will be held at Valentine Hall, Amherst College, on Saturday, March 15, 2014, from 6:30pm to Midnight.
Last year’s event was attended by hundreds of your neighbors and friends who enjoyed one of the most memorable events on the Amherst Calendar.
For one evening Valentine Hall is transformed into an elegant mini-Casino complete with 2 bands, complimentary food, wine tastings and a full Funny Money Cash Bar.
Party-goers (21 years and older) try their hand at roulette, blackjack, Texas Hold 'Em, and other exciting games of chance and skill. Monte Carlo “Funny Money” can be purchased at the casino and used, with the help of Lady (or Sir) Luck to grow your personal pile of Funny Money cash.
Your winnings can be redeemed for prize coupons used to enter drawings for more than $10,000 of fabulous gifts and prizes, including fine wines, gift certificates for local businesses such as massages, tune-ups, even tattoos, and many other fabulous prizes.
This is a great opportunity to socialize with other parents and make new connections in a friendly, upbeat atmosphere. It has often been compared to Prom Night, but for grown-ups! No lectures or presentations, just a great time with people you know or would like to get to know.
The best thing is that every minute you’re enjoying yourself, you’ll be helping support Amherst High School Athletics. The Amherst Hurricane Boosters raise funds through Monte Carlo Night and other events to help achieve our mission of having a positive impact on athletics at Amherst Regional High School. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door -- and you can direct $20 of that to the sport(s) of your choice! Click here to buy tickets online, and here to learn about other purchase options.
