Fun Found at ‘Springtacular’ Casino Night

Blackjack was a popular game at the Las Caritas fundraiser.


Las Caritas held its “Springtacular” Casino Night on Saturday night, April 2, at the De Bell Golf Course in Burbank. Doors opened at 5 p.m. followed by dinner at 6 p.m. and casino-type games.

The “Springtacular” Casino Night event, the first in-person fundraiser the organization has held since the pandemic lockdown in March 2020, is the only fundraising event that Las Caritas holds during the year that supports its philanthropies. These include providing meals for the Ascencia Homeless Shelter in Glendale and giving Christmas gifts to Ascencia’s children, providing staples for the GUSD pantry, and health kits for Operation School Bell.

“Springtacular” Casino Night organizers recognized the many supporters that helped raise between $7,000 and $8,000 above any expenses. This money will help Las Caritas continue to support these worthy programs.
