Let the dice roll

Texas hold ’em poker, roulette, craps, silver and gold and blackjack enticed Cabrini students to try their hand at gambling on Friday, Nov. 19. Students joined the CAP Board Friday night in the Grace Hall Atrium to eat some boardwalk food, watch “Casino,” “Ocean’s 11,” play some poker and listen to some classic Frank Sinatra music.

“It’s a good time. They put together a quality event,” Craig Vagell said, a senior English and communication major. Grace Hall was appropriately decorated for the occasion with playing cards, dice, balloons and streamers. Even the students that worked at the tables were dressed for the part they were playing.

Sophomore Stephanie Canfield, said, “It’s been a lot of fun, they all look very professional.”

Jackie Turhi, a freshman member of the CAP Board, explained that the students get a voucher for $200 when they first walk in. The student can come back two more times to receive a total of $600, each time receiving an X on their hand to indicate how many times they received $200. When they are done playing for the night, for each $100 they won, they get a raffle ticket. At the end of the night winners are picked for prizes ranging from a MP3 player, DVD player, Xbox and many other smaller prizes.

“This is my first CAP event and I think we did a good job,” Loan Nguyen said, a freshman member of the CAP Board. “It took a lot of hard work and so far we have had a good turnout,” she said.

“This is a good turnout for a Friday night for the CAP Board,” Vagell said. All of the tables were full with students taking a try at the games.

Many other members helped to prepare this night including Jenna Kane, who did the promoting for the event. Ann Marie Mancuso, Turhi and Nicole Morgan prepared the decorations and Nguyen was in charge of the food.

Amanda Murphy, a sophomore, said, “It’s fun, I like how they decorated it, the food looks good and everyone seems to be having a good time.”
