Carson Valley Inn hosts two intriguing gaming events in October.
In October, Minden’s Carson Valley Inn hosts two unique gaming events—one that benefits a great cause and another that interjects an unusual twist: the ability to win other players’ money.
On October 9, in the Shannon Ballroom, Bunco For Breast Cancer involves three rounds of Bunco play, prizes, a raffle and silent auction for the cancer center, and a costume contest. The sixth annual event, using the tagline, “Roll the dice. Beat the odds,” adds up to a night of fun, but most important, philanthropy. The event is limited to the first 216 paid participants, and the buy-in is $30 per person after September 1. Proceeds benefit Carson-Tahoe Hospital Cancer Services.
Later in the month, CVI hosts the Fall Game-A-Thon on October 23-24, in which participants can try their luck in tournaments on the slots or blackjack table, but not both. For $99 (or $164 if you’re a non-Inn Club Member), gamers have a chance to win big, but they’re also treated to an opening-night reception and an awards banquet featuring a prime-rib dinner and prizes. Every penny of the entry fees is returned to contestants in the way of winnings.
The Carson Valley Inn celebrated its 25th anniversary in August and will continue the party throughout the year.
