MILLSTONE – The Millstone Township Foundation for Educational Excellence will host its fourth annual Casino Night fundraiser on Feb. 20 at 6 p.m. at Forsgate Country Club, Monroe Township.

The cost of the event is $75 per person and includes some “fun money” for gambling entertainment, as well as a buffet dinner, dessert and cash bar. There will be a variety of casino games including a money wheel, Texas Hold ‘Em, Roulette, Blackjack and Craps. In addition, there will be tricky tray and silent auctions with prizes.

The foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to funding grants for items that nurture extraordinary educational experiences for every student in Millstone Township’s public schools, according to a press release.

Proceeds from Casino Night will help the foundation continue to provide grant funding for innovative and exciting classroom programs, educational opportunities, staff development and state-of-the-art teaching materials that are beyond the scope of the general school budget, according to the press release.

The foundation operates independently from the Millstone Township K-8 School District and replenishes its grant fund exclusively through private donations and its fundraising efforts. The foundation has awarded more than $527,200 in grants to Millstone Township schools since 2002, according to the press release.
