FFCA High School Casino
The next FFCA High School casino will be on Saturday, December 9, and Sunday, December 10, 2017 at Deerfoot Inn & Casino.
The casino is the greatest source of funds raised at FFCA High School. At our last casino, in February 2016, we raised $70,000! Funds have been used to purchase: spin bikes, a shot clock, a portable PA system, X-country ski equipment, two sets of 30 Chromebooks, as well as four scholarships for qualifying graduates.
We wouldn’t be able to do it, however, without our volunteers: parents, grandparents, friends, staff, and former students. If you are 18+ years old, you can volunteer. No experience is necessary and training is provided. You will have fun, enjoy a complimentary meal, and contribute 9 hours of volunteer time while helping to raise necessary funds.
Daytime shifts are from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Evening shifts are from 7:00 pm to 3:45 am.
Count room shifts are from 10:00 pm to 4:00 am.
Interested? Email email@example.com for more information and to learn about the different volunteer positions available.
