PARKLAND, FL- Secure Our Schools (SOS) Parkland and Stand with Parkland have teamed up for a night of fun to benefit school security. "Always Bet on Parkland" Casino Night takes place Friday, September 6, 2019 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at the Plaza Del Lago Clubhouse in Heron Bay.
"Always Bet on Parkland" is a Vegas themed night with casino games such as craps, roulette and blackjack using funny money. Groups can dance the night away to Rubixx, a live 80s band. The event will feature an assortment of hors d' oeuvers from local restaurants and an open bar. The event is $125 per person and registration is open now.
The event will benefit school security through the joint collaboration of SOS Parkland and Stand with Parkland. Although both organizations work on different aspects of school safety, they share the common goal of keeping students and teachers safe. "We applaud and support SOS for having success in making change," stated Tony Montalto, President of Stand with Parkland. "We both want students and teachers to be safe."
"We categorically support the other groups that are also working toward the same goal, which is to have safer kids and teachers. By doing this event with Stand with Parkland, we are combining our efforts and, hence, our voices, " added SOS Parkland President and Founder Bo Landy.
"At the end of the day, security costs money and the district does not have it in the budget so we, as parents, families, and community members need to all do our part to help secure our schools in any way we can," said Landy. "Not only is it all to raise money for this extremely important cause, but it will also make an incredibly fun date night or night out with friends."
"It's going to be a great event. It will be a fun night," added Montalto.
