Bay Street Theatre, in partnership with the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corps, is pleased to announce CASINO NIGHT on Saturday, April 13 from 7pm-11 pm. This is the second Casino Night at Bay Street Theatre, but the first in cooperation with the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corps.
"We are so proud to be partnering with the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance Corps," says
TracyMitchell, Executive Director of Bay Street Theatre. We are happy to be able to bring this event back for its second year, and with this new collaboration it will be even better than before!"
"Our partnering was great timing for both of us," says Mark Poitras, Critical Care EMT with the Sag Harbor Volunteer Ambulance. He goes on to say "Like the ambulance, Bay Street is largely dependent on the generosity of the people of Sag Harbor and the surrounding communities. Much like Bay Street uses donations to produce spectacular cultural events, the Sag Harbor Ambulance uses our donations to purchase our ambulances."
Bay Street Patron, Susie Sabin, who attended last year’s event, will be leading the host committee for this year’s event. "My husband Jonathan and I had such a fantastic time last year," says Susie, "that we wanted to be part of the team this year to make it even more fun." Other hosts for the evening include Lindsay and John Landes; and Barbara and Paul Kushner.
The evening’s tickets are just $50 per person in advance on line at www.baystreet.org or $60 day of the event. Each ticket includes one free drink, free munchies at the bar and $200 in "Bay Street Bucks" to play your favorite games. There will also be raffle tickets and concessions for sale. If you run out of money at the tables, don’t worry because 300 additional "Bay Street Bucks" can also be purchased for $20, 800 for $50 and 2,000 for $100 so you can continue having fun while supporting two great causes at the same time! Gamblers can also use Bay Street Bucks to purchase raffle tickets for great prizes at the end of the evening.
Grand Prizes include a 3-day/2-night stay at the Tropicana Hotel in Atlantic City, dinners at Muse and Tutto Il GIorno, a foursome at the Noyac Golf Course and more.
