This is a true fundraising event for RWN to secure operational funds for the organization and to support the mission of RWN. Our goal is to raise monies to be used towards programs, professional development opportunities, and community endeavors.
There is an ATM onsite for participant’s convenience.
- The bulk of our fundraising will come from the generosity of individuals at the event through gaming chip re-buys, drink specials at the bar, Big Wheel gaming, Fantasy Dealer opportunities, rather than through event ticket purchase. Participation will be highly encouraged!
- There will be NO silent auction or raffle baskets this year. Opportunities to win fabulous prizes will take place with SPINS at The Big Wheel.
