Let the good times continue to roll at Casino Night


The Gonzales Independent School District Education Foundation’s highly anticipated 2023 Casino Night event returns Saturday, Feb. 18 and again will be held at the J.B. Wells Expo Center (1653 CR 197) with doors planned to open at 5 p.m.

There are many options available to donate to this wonderful cause, while having an amazing time, with High Roller Tables, VIP tables, and General Public Admission tickets available. Don’t wait too long, though, because this is one of those yearly events which sells out quickly.

As a special treat, this year’s Casino Night event will be featuring dinner prepared by none other than renowned celebrity chef, Nedra Harris. Ms. Harris not only entered the world-renowned Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School of Chicago, but may also say she is one of only a few who have had the opportunity to meet the world famous chef Wolfgang Puck. Harris was also a contestant on the internationally known Hell’s Kitchen competition show, also allowing her to learn under the famous chef Gordon Ramsey.

Currently Harris is the personal chef to many well known and respected celebrities, athletes, and has even cooked, personally, for Pope Francis. No doubt the meal at this year’s event will to be not missed.

This annual event will not want to be missed this year, with a night of fantastic fun, fabulous food, and, of course, not only fun at casino games but being able to donate to our local educational goals.

VIP, High Roller, and individual tickets may be purchased by registering at the foundation website, located at gonzalesedfoundation.com, or by contacting any Foundation Board member.
