Crystal “Vegas” Beach

casino_00Welcome to Fabulous Bolivar Peninsula! That was the theme on Saturday night for the Chamber of Commerce Casino Night. This fun inaugural fundraiser for the Chamber turned Crystal Beach into Las Vegas for the evening. The Vegas-like atmosphere was booming with roulette, craps, and blackjack tables led by tuxedo clad casino “bosses”, of course. Nearly 75 gamblers strolled into the casino, dropped $20 for $2000 worth of chips, and gambled the night away. Raffle prizes were given away throughout the evening and Top Gambler prizes were awarded at the end of the night. And Crystal “Vegas” Beach was complete with gourmet delights sponsored by local restaurants. A big thanks to all the prize, table, and food sponsors.    What happens in Crystal Beach, stays in Crystal Beach!
