Fundraising with Roulette and Blackjack Table Hire

Taking a bit of a gamble – or was it?

When you are trying to decide on entertainment for an important event – an anniversary, a party, something to impress your clients and colleagues – perhaps even your wedding – you can’t be blamed for feeling a bit nervous about what to choose. Recently Aces Fun Casinos was booked for two very different events – one, an annual award dinner for a golfing community, the other a wedding.

Somerset Youth Golf Players Fundraising Evening

The first, the organiser ruefully admitted, was an event that always ‘made a loss’. Luckily, his first great decision was to change his venue to the fabulous ‘Oake Manor Golf Club’. There, the catering manager Steve Purchase, with years of experience at putting on a jolly good show, suggested that instead of expecting a loss, why not aim for a profit by swapping their usual after dinner speaker with a fun casino? Would guests enjoy it, would they even play, would it be a gamble worth taking?

Well, of course it was! Our presence at Oake over the years has secured many a happy outcome and this was no exception with three gaming tables bursting at the seams. Our event manager approached each guest offering fun money – one £100 note for £10.00 and there were many enthusiastic takers for that bargain. Lively games, a great first prize for the highest roller and over £800.00 in profit going towards Somerset Youth Golf Players at the end of the night


Wedding at Wyck Hill Hotel – Stow on the Wold

Following that, we attended a most unusual wedding reception at the prestigious Wyck Hill Hotel near Stow on the Wold. Of course we are no stranger to wedding receptions – always a happy event with guests up and ready to enjoy themselves. This one though seemed even more well planned than most.

Vegas Themed Wedding Entertainment

We had been booked many many months ago by the Groom who explained he was planning a ‘Vegas theme. We were able to help with that as we carry a little ‘Vegas theming. Richard, the Groom, and I’m sure his bride had a bit to do with it too – got so many things ‘right’ you’d have thought he must have done it all before! From the venue to the brilliant party band entertainment ‘The Decibels’, the other great singers who ‘just happened to be there on the night’, the dancing, table decorations – all really worked and the party was simply ‘buzzing’!

We managed to take a few photos – especially loved the funny wedding cake and the ‘Welcome to Vegas’ table signs. We had some exciting moments on both gaming tables. The Bestie did his best but it wasn’t good enough for  going all-in on one hand with a hand of twenty against the dealer’s ten – she pulled an Ace. Ah well, lucky in love so they say…

The dealer’s  run of luck ran out a while later and one very fearless player managed to hike up his winnings to an incredible amount by simply doubling his bet every hand. The dealer even stopped to take a photo of a hand you could only dream of in real gaming – three hands of twenty or more against the dealer’s six. No prizes for guessing the result of that!

So – take a gamble on a fun casino for your special occasion – but it isn’t really a gamble as there will be no risk. It’ll be a winning bet we guarantee.
