Fun, fundraising and food mark Landmark casino day

'The whole day was a great success'
7/4/2022  - Deron Hamel

Landmark Village residents enjoyed a day of casino-style games, top-notch food and entertainment on June 1 that also raised $302 in support of the Alzheimer Society of Sarnia-Lambton.

The casino games ran from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., with residents enjoying blackjack, roulette, crowns and anchors, and a horse-race wheel. Each big winner was rewarded with chocolate coins. 

Brent Hart, the Sarnia seniors living community's fun co-ordinator, says the casino day saw “an excellent turnout” from residents, adding “residents bankrupted the casino of all our chocolate coins.”

There were several raffles offered to raise money for the Alzheimer Society.

After the games, residents enjoyed a fancy dinner that began with a “high-stakes seafood plate” of escargot, oysters and shrimp, or a “jackpot salad” for an appetizer.

The main courses were “show me the money beef tenderloin” and “ching-ching pistachio-crusted chicken breast”. For dessert, the dietary team served a silk chocolate truffle bar or cheesecake with a fresh berry blend.

But dinner wasn't the end of the night.

After filling up on fine food, residents enjoyed entertainment from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. courtesy of the Borderline Band.

“We had a great crowd enjoy the music, and the whole day was a great success,” Brent says.

Several members from the dietary team helped run the casino games and made the experience for residents enjoyable, he adds.

“Everyone did a great job to make the whole day a memorable one,” Brent says.
