After an afternoon at Town Hall the group from Kames Capital made their way onto the terrace of Norton House Hotel to enjoy the last of the summer sun and a sumptuous barbecue while our team transformed the Ballroom into a slice of Vegas for a, corporate activity ideas, Fun Casino Night in aid of Cancer Research UK. After dinner the evening kicked off with a bang as the raffle was drawn and the five prizes awarded, including the controversial Kames Mystery Prize (which as far as we know still remains a mystery haha!). There was much hilarity as the car park exemption prize was awarded to one of the only men in the room without a car, although he did look forward to the trading possibilities it would afford him with his colleagues!

The buy in for the Casino was announced along with our aims to raise as much as possible to Kames’ 2014 fundraising target of £20,000. The group then took part in a fun casino evening with both Blackjack and Roulette, where each individual battled out to become champion. The prize on offer was of course the much sought after Team Challenge Company winner’s trophy with the wooden spoon on offer for our worst gambler of the evening. The gambling soon kicked into life as everyone received their fun money to aid them in their quest for glory. The Blackjack and Roulette tables were swarmed early doors with the competitive guests looking to win big early and get off to a flyer. Over on the Blackjack Mo was impressing SJ with great success at this early stage as he racked up some impressive wins in quick succession! Certainly heading in the right direction!

Midway through the evening it was time to turn once more to the real cash and place our bets on our bonus charity challenge Hole in One! Everyone had a go, many more than one in fact in a bid to make it to the final round and eventually be crowned the winner of the cash prize! In the end we had 8 qualifiers to the final with only one teams attempt taking home the £20! After all was said done, a fantastic evening sadly drew to a close with many having gambled rather large amounts on the last spin of the roulette wheel. The wooden spoon winner, who had lost the most depite Alisa’s help! He accepted it graciously however and walked away with his head held high, while our top three winners were invited to the claim their cash prizes! Possibly the best part of the night occurred as all three of our generous winners returned their prizes to the charity prize pot giving us great pleasure to announce a total raised on £1204. A huge hank you to everyone who donated and took part in the Fun Casino Night, and as always a special thank you to Alisa for organising the fantastic evening.

After all this time I am still super keen to know what the Kames Mystery Prize turned out to be haha! It was a pleasure to be part of such a fun night and more importantly to help raise some incredible sums of money for a wonderful charity. A huge well done to all who contributed and Ailsa for once again making it so special. Sarah-Jane
