As said, Stritch arranges a lot of events for their students. This weekend they had gaming night and casino night with great success. At the game night, they had several TV-screens and different playing consoles such as Nintendo Wii, Dreamcast, Nintendo 64 and Sega Megadrive. Everyone who entered got a ticket, and at the end of the night prizes were drawn such as MacDonalds giftcard, BestBuy Giftcard, Nintendo DS and Photocamera. I got the 10$ BestBuy giftcard.
The casino night was the most fun Stritch-event so far I think. When entering, people paid 3 dollars and got playing chips and slot machine coins in return. These playing chips could be used to play blackjack, poker and roulette, and could be changed into lottery tickets. At the end of the night, they drew prizes such as a 100$ Visa gift card, poker set and electronic equipment. This was a fun experience, as it was very close to how it would be at a real casino, and at the same time totally legal: the money that the casino earned was sent to Haiti and the players could not win real money (even though a visa gift card is practically the same as money). This has been a fun weekend, and now I am looking forward to Wednesday when the Stritch cars will take us down to "Noodles and Company" where we will get 5$ to eat for.
