The Casino is Coming…We Need You!

Nellie McClung School has the opportunity to raise more than $65,000 at an upcoming casino, and we need your help to make it happen! The opportunity to volunteer at a casino comes around every 2 years and is by far our largest fundraising opportunity.   Nellie McClung is scheduled for Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30. Over the two days, we need almost 40 volunteers to cover different shifts.

The effort is not only worth it but critical to our ability to raise funds that go towards extra resources and experiences that enrich learning for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6.  For example, casino funds can help pay for field trips, science kits, instruments, books, art supplies, sports equipment, artist-in-residence programs, iPads, laptops, Smart boards, Makerspace materials and more. Simply put, the impact is amazing.

Volunteers don’t need any experience to volunteer for the Casino. We won’t be dealing cards or managing games, but doing behind-the-scenes work with assistance from advisors who are there to help. We know parents are busy — if you are unable to help, perhaps an aunt, uncle or grandparent is available. The shifts are daytime or evening, approximately 8 hours long. If you can help with just one shift, you alone raise approximately $2,000 and will be recognized as a Nellie Hero on our webpage.

For more information, contact Danae, our Casino Coordinator, at  To sign up, go to SignUpGenius-Casino  and choose a time that works for you, then Danae will contact you with the details.  We need to get most volunteers signed up before the end of the school year, so please call or email as soon as possible. Thanks!
