How to run a Poker Fundraiser
First of all....why?
In my experience, fundraisers through silent auctions and bake sales are pretty standard fare. It's tried and true. But everyone does it, why not go the extra step to make sure you generate more money and have fun? Poker tournaments create an environment where people are sitting down and interacting with each other. They have a stake in the game for one of your charitably donated prizes so they have incentives to stay and contribute more to your charity by strengthening their own chances at winning. You get a competitive social environment, where people are encouraged to continue supporting your cause. Why not?
Steps to start fundraising.
Step 1: Click www.procasinoparties.com/book-now.html and schedule a time and place with us or go on our live chat to discuss your options.
Step 2: Fill out the Registration Form for Annual Nonprofit Organizations with the CA Department of Justice. https://ems.doj.ca.gov/cgHome.action
*It is important to note that nonprofit organizations, per CA Business and Professions Code, Div. 8, Ch. 5, Article 17 - 19986, states that "A nonprofit organization holding a fundraiser pursuant to subdivision (a) shall not conduct more than one fundraiser per calendar year, and each fundraiser shall not exceed five consecutive hours. Each fundraiser shall be preapproved by the department. Eligible nonprofit organizations that have multiple chapters may hold one fundraiser per chapter per calendar year."*
Step 3: Upon approval, let's plan together on the most optimal way to facilitate this tournament. Do you need it to be a relaxed environment? Do you want it competitive and stringent so players feel the pressure to re-buy and continue playing? Do you have a lot of beginner players? We will optimize the event with our staff to make sure you have the best solution to raise funds for your organization!

If you haven't already, check out our pricing page here. We offer affordable packages that may fit within your budget. If you want to customize your experience, we'll work with you to provide the entertainment you seek, whether it is a solo table or a private poker tournament. Let's talk.
Do we need to pay up front?
That would be ideal! But to secure a booking with us, we would need at least a 15% non-refundable deposit upon receipt.
Can I get a discount?
What's the password? By password, we mean referral code, if you're lucky enough to come across one. We have occasional specials, so check back on our site regularly.
What games do you provide?
As of now, we have the crowd favorites - blackjack, Texas Hold 'Em poker, roulette and craps! And more to come! What would you like to see?
How many players can play at once?
First, it depends on how many casino tables you have. Blackjack has seven spots. Poker has nine spots. Roulette has nine spots. Craps can accommodate up to 16! But like in a real casino, players wander from table to table so that everyone can play every game available!
Is there a pit boss/casino manager?
There can be! Let us know if you need one and we can discuss the details.
Can you accommodate smaller venues/my house?
We sure can! Just keep in mind on how many tables you want. We'll work with you to fit your party needs. We can even do an in-person site check if we have to.
Do you have any other services?
You know it! We have a photo booth, DJ and a mobile bar. What else do you need? We'll do our best to find it for your party. We aim to please!
Do dealers dress in costume?
Only if you want us to. We love to dress up to suit your themed party. It'll make your party that much better. We can make it happen.
How long can we play for?
Our minimum is three hours. However, if you want the casino to run longer or shorter, let's talk business, capeesh?
What's up with Prohibition?
It makes us conjure a time when speakeasies were a happening thing. What was more fun back then than illegal alcohol and gambling? We want to bring that allure of the Prohibition Era of boozy shenanigans to your next party. Whether it's a wet or dry shindig, let us entertain you.
