The 4th Annual Casino for a Cause benefitting the Resource & Crisis Center (RCC) of Galveston County will be held the evening of Saturday, July 27th at the Tremont House. The organization is thrilled to be holding the event for the first year at the Tremont House. In addition to an evening of exciting casino gaming, including poker, roulette, craps, and slot machines, RCC advises guests to look forward to great additions to this year’s Casino for a Cause that include live music from the local band Two Bit Karma, an island themed buffet prepared by the creative catering team at the Tremont House, an extensive silent auction, and announcer Bob Ford, the Voice of the Astros. The excitement of the evening will not end until the winners of the finest jackpot prizes have been announced.
Most importantly, the fun and excitement of the evening is not the true reason that we will be gathering for the Casino for a Cause event. All proceeds from the 4th Annual Casino for a Cause will benefit men, women, and children in the Galveston County community that are seeking safety and healing from family violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. A victim who has received services from the Resource & Crisis Center best explains how the proceeds of Casino for a Cause make a true difference in the lives of families by telling her story:
“At the Resource and Crisis Center I was received with open arms and non-judgmental staff. I was constantly reminded that it was not my fault and that I had the right to live without fear and violence. I was provided with crisis counseling, safety planning and assistance with food and clothing. I also received assistance in obtaining a two year protective order against my abuser. I strongly feel that without the help of the Resource and Crisis Center, I could have lost my life or had my child taken from me, due to the violence in the home. I can now live at peace with my child and show him that violence is not the answer.”
