MONROE – The Union County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority hosts An Evening in Monte Carlo Casino Night and Gala to benefit its scholarship fund, public service initiatives and the Union County Community Shelter.
Since its inception, the public service sorority has awarded more than $40,000 in scholarships to girls from Union County Public Schools.
The gala starts at 6 p.m. Jan. 13 at Rolling Hills Country Club, 2722 W. Roosevelt Blvd. Tickets cost $125.
It will include thousands of Delta dollars to play at 12 casino tables, hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and raffle drawings. Participants will also dance to DJ KDot.
“This night of fun and excitement is intended to raise money for the programs and initiatives we implement throughout Union County,” said Melita Pope Mitchell, chapter president. “In addition, we are excited to give back a portion of the proceeds to support our partner in fighting homelessness and hunger, the Union County Community Shelter.”
Last year, the shelter provided emergency housing to 331 single adults and 132 families, plus provided 54,591 prepared meals through its soup kitchen.
