Our 2018 Casino Night Fundraiser Was a Huge Success for Area Children and State Hurricane Relief

The final numbers are in for our 2018 Casino Night fundraiser, which is just a good time all around for RTX and partner companies that are all part of Zealandia Holding Company. We hire a casino party company to come in and set up tables of blackjack, craps, roulette and poker, they provide their own dealers and casino chips, and employees can redeem their winnings at the end of the night for vacations. Following the event, an email vacation sale raises even more money for charity.

At this year’s event, we decided to supplement our usual donation to Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry with a donation to¬†Foundation For the Carolinas‘ Hurricane Florence Response Fund. We gave just over $4,900 that will be directed to nonprofits in North and South Carolina providing relief to victims of the storm. Grants will be distributed to areas of greatest need by Foundation For the Carolinas.

We also donated $11,400 to ABCCM’s Christmas Angel program, providing Christmas gifts for underprivileged children. We had a great time as volunteer shoppers as well, picking out the perfect gift for each family. We want to thank all of our employee volunteers, our generous employees, and the kind folks at ABCCM and Foundation for the Carolinas for doing such great work and making our 2018 Casino Night a success!
