The St. Bernadette Fundraising Society URGENTLY requires Volunteers for our upcoming fundraiser at Century Casino on November 11& 12, 2018.  

No experience is needed. These are not difficult positions to learn and you will be trained during your shift. Meals and snacks will be provided for all volunteers. Transportation and babysitting costs will also be covered upon request. 

The Casino is the single most important Fundraiser for our school.  Each two years we raise between $70,000 to $85,000 in only two days effort!  We have been struggling the last several years to fill the shifts for this most important event and have come dangerously close to not meeting our volunteer commitment. If that happens again this year it will result in the loss of these funds for our school forever!

Funds raised are used to subsidize field trips, bussing and the purchase of books, technology, equipment, desks, and various other services and programs offered to the entire student body.  Without this influx of funds an increase in fees for each student is inevitable at approximately $100 to $200 per student per year to cover these costs. 

Please consider signing up for a shift.  It is a small request with a huge impact for all of the students!  We have made it especially easy this year by creating an online sign-up sheet.  Hint:  sign up early to get the best shifts!  Casino days fall on a Sunday and a holiday Monday so we are hoping this will be increase flexibility for many of you as the children will be home from school and you may be off of work.  If you are unable to help perhaps you have a friend or extended family member who would be willing to work a shift on behalf of your child.  Please share this information with them as you do not have to have a child attending St. Bernadette to be eligible to volunteer at the Casino! 

To volunteer, please click on this link https://www.volunteersignup.org/FKABW in the search bar to take you to the sign-up sheet.  Then click on the shift that you can work and enter your name and info as you are prompted.  You will receive a confirmation email regarding your shift and a reminder as we get closer to the casino date. You will also be sent more information about the perks, rules and requirements for working in a casino along with our immense gratitude!  If you would like more information about what each position requires you may review them at the end of this letter.   

If you would like to volunteer but do not have access online you may contact the school and leave a message and the volunteer coordinator will get back to you.  Thank you so much for your assistance with this fundraiser and we look forward to seeing you there!

Never worked a Casino before?  Here are position descriptions to help you understand the roles.

Position: General Manager 

The role of the general manager is to supervise all aspects of the casino, ensuring the casino is conducted according to Casino Operating Guidelines.

Position: Banker

The role of the banker is to supervise the cash cage. This includes documenting all cash cage transactions, ensuring the security of the chips and cash in the cash cage, and holding the cashiers accountable for the chips and cash they manage while on duty. The banker reports to the general manager and is responsible for cashiers and chip runners.

Position: Cashier

The cashier's role is similar to a bank teller's. The cashier interacts directly with casino players. Any transactions over $200 must be witnessed by the general manager, banker or cash cage advisor. The cashier reports to the banker and works with the general manager, banker, financial control supervisor, advisor, and casino players.

Position: Chip Runner

The chip runner opens and closes tables, delivers chip fills from the banker to game tables, delivers credits from game tables to the banker and may assist the general manager with other duties. The chip runner reports to the banker and works with the general manager and gaming table personnel.

Position: Count Room

Count room volunteers take on one of four possible jobs (which will be decided in the Count Room):

1. Sorter: Sorts all cash or chips by denomination

2. Counter: Counts the sorted cash or chips, by denomination

3. Recorder: Records the number of bills, coins, and chips counted

4. Amalgamator: Verifies the cash or chips counted and groups them into bundles and summarizes the cash and chips with the count room supervisor

 

If these all sound overwhelming, no need to worry – there are paid casino advisors whose job it is to train every volunteer at the start of each shift so no previous experience is necessary.  

If you (the parent) cannot help at the designated times - perhaps your child's grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, adult sibling, etc might be willing to help out our school.
