STARS Kids Put Their Poker Face on for Casino Night

STARS students playing BlackjackCVI’s STARS’ kids are all geared up with their poker faces for this Friday’s Casino night. For the last 10 years the STARS program has been hosting this fun-filled event. It was created as a way to add a new activity for the kids to enjoy with their family and friends. Former board member and STARS mentor, Bill Cohen, who loves gambling, suggested a casino night. “I go down to Biloxi to gamble all the time and thought creating a casino night would be a fun activity for the kids to enjoy,” said Cohen. Since its inception casino night has grown steadily. This Friday about 36 STARS kids along with their parents, siblings, STARS staff and volunteers all plan to attend.

The goal is to win the most chips by the end of the night to win a prize. There are several prizes available, including gift cards from the VisAbility Store. STARS kids can play poker, blackjack, roulette, and Texas hold-em. In the past year or two the STARS Program has added Bingo and Animal races to appeal to the younger kids so that this event could be open to ages 5-18. All games are made accessible either by using large print or braille. For example, playing cards have braille letters and numbers and bingo boards are in a large print font. At the roulette wheel the numbers/colors are called out to confirm bets.

”When we first started casino night we had a small, toy-size roulette wheel,” said Cohen. “Today we have an actual-size one for the real game experience.”

So, this Friday night will be an exciting time for the STARS kids and their families as they enjoy casino night once again.
