Lake Anna Business Partnership

Casino Night 2013.....

As part of an ongoing plan which offers entertaining events that highlight the Lake Anna lifestyle for residents and visitors as well as foster business networking, the Lake Anna Business Partnership (LABP) will once again hold its popular Viva Las Vegas Casino Night February 9, 2013 at Lake Anna Winery.

The 2013 Vegas Night will be held February 9, 2013 at Lake Anna Winery!

The theme of the 2013 event is Viva Las Vegas! and the event includes music, dancing, black jack, roulette, craps, Texas Hold ‘Em, and Championship Horse Racing® all managed by Group Dynamics, a professional entertainment company. A Grand Prize Raffle Drawing with table winnings culminates the evening. Over 225 people attended the 2012 event. This year's event will feature an expanded floor plan and more poker and black jack tables.

Attendees “gamble” for raffle tickets. The more raffle tickets won, the better the chances of winning the grand prize and other donated prizes.  In addition, throughout the event, a silent auction was held which featured artwork, a kayak, restaurant gift certificates, and many other Lake Anna business donations.

These folks gave greatly of their time to make the night happen,” noted Vegas Night Committee Chair C.C. McCotter, “And they should be commended for their effort.”
