The Junior League of Dallas Presents: "Casino in Casablanca"

Round up the usual suspects! Join the Junior League of Dallas on Friday, November 12 at the iconic Hall of State in Fair Park for the 14th annual Auction and Casino Party. This year, we are celebrating Africa, and what better way than with a nod to the famous Ricks Café from the 1942 classic Casablanca!

Our fabulous casino features the JLD favorites blackjack, craps, and Texas Hold’em, and will include a “Spin-It-to-Win-It” roulette wheel; you will also have the option to purchase additional chips throughout the night so you may enjoy “Vegas-style” betting the entire evening.

Browse through our Souq, a North African Market, and bid on treasures like gorgeous hand-made jewelry; a designer handbag from Marin Hopper, daughter of Dennis Hopper; and fabulous trips. You can also try your luck at winning your own “Hope” or “Tiffany” in our Diamond Dig where one winner walks away with a real diamond. And, of course, there’s the Mystery Bag where every bag has treasures to be found.

The evening’s menu offers authentic Moroccan cuisine created by Executive Chef Joseph Oldham of Food Glorious Food. Indulge yourself on lamb tagine, shrimp pizzettes, or beef kefta – or sample the gorgeous pastilla. Desserts, with ingredients such as honey and rosewater, are also sure to delight.

Best of all, our Auction and Casino Party raises money for the JLD’s Community Service Fund, which supports the nonprofit agencies in the League’s six Issue Areas: Arts and Cultural Enrichment, Family Preservation, Health, Poverty Intervention, and Violence Prevention.

Don’t miss what is sure to be the fall event in Dallas. Until then, “Here’s looking at you, kid.”
