Important - Casino Information

The McKenzie Towne School Parents Association will be holding its first fundraising Casino on November 15th and 16th, 2011 at the Deerfoot Inn & Casino.  Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance the educational experience of all the children at McKenzie Towne School and is a great way to meet & socialise with other members of the community. 

We are eligible to hold casinos only once every two years and have the potential to raise in excess of $60,000 over the two days.  This casino is a critical fundraiser for our school, as it allows the Parent Association to fund a wide variety of items, such as field trips, books, programs, technology etc.

In addition to the general volunteers necessary for the casino, we have an urgent need to fill the remaining key positions, including General Manager, Cashier, Banker and Count Room Supervisor.  These positions must be filled before September 15th in order for the casino to proceed.  Volunteering is easy and fun.  Training will be supplied for all positions and advisors will be there to help us throughout.  There are two shifts per day 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM & 6:30 PM – CLOSE (around 2:30 AM).  The Count Room Supervisor has only one shift per day, which is 10:00 PM - CLOSE (around 3:00 AM).  You can find further information about the key positions by following this link.

If you can help or need more information, please contact Stuart Gannon (Casino Director) or (403) 680-8232 directly.  If you are able to volunteer for one of the key positions, please complete the volunteer form at this link and send it back to school with your child or by email it to Stuart by Monday September 12th.
