From Clayton Trosclair, Grauer Development and Event Coordinator:
Thanks to everyone who attended Casino Night on Saturday, March 10. Approximately 70 people turned out, from fiercely competitive poker players to beginners who got tips and instructions on blackjack, craps and roulette.
Our 6th Annual Poker Tournament took place as part of the event, with Rich Mottla outmaneuvering other parents and faculty members to claim the title of poker champion for the second year in a row. Mike Matthews earned 2nd place while Kristi Mottla took 3rd place.
Thanks to our guests for bringing a bottle of wine. The bottles will be auctioned off at our Spring Gala on May 5.
The Grauer School would like to extend a special thank you to Grauer parents Carolynn and Joseph Yates and Casino Del Sol Entertainment for providing all of the gaming tables and supplies and arranging for the 7 friendly and professional dealers. We also appreciate the help of Molly Scofield, Michelle Bourgeot, Erin Hawk and Sheila Wirick in contributing to a fun and successful event.
