A Place at Home along with CHI Health at Home, will host a Casino Night called “Bets for Vets” on Friday, July 28, 2017 at Brighton Gardens, 9220 Western Ave., Omaha. All proceeds will benefit VA Homeless Outreach Programs.
The VA’s specialized programs for homeless Veterans serve hundreds of thousands of homeless and at-risk Veterans each year. Independently and in collaboration with federal and community partners, the programs provide Veterans with housing solutions, employment opportunities, health care, justice- and reentry-related services and more.
Chris Cummings, Community Liaison with A Place at Home, stated, “We are excited to work with CHI Health at Home as well as Brighton Gardens to have this opportunity to help homeless veterans. All of our organizations deal with veterans every day and we know the impact they have had on our country. A Casino night is a fun way to collect donations and raise funds, and we have been overwhelmed by the community’s generosity in donating prizes and offering their time to volunteer for the event.”
Admission to the event will be a minimum of 5 donated items from the donations accepted by the VA Homeless Outreach program. For each 5 items donated, attendees will receive $500 in chips.
