"Slip An Ace Up Your Sleeve" a Musical Chair Party to Benefit The Eugene Symphony

Gaming Secrets & Refreshments for 30 Guests

RSVP to Nataile (541) 338-7146 to receive the actual address of the event. “You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em,” sang Kenny Rogers in his 1978 song, “The Gambler.” That’s true, but you can bet the flinty-eyed card sharks sitting around the gaming table with you know all about it. And then, there are those poker-faced house employees, the dealers, and croupiers. You need an ace up your sleeve to beat these odds! Kevin Blackwood, gaming journalist and former gambler will discuss games of skill and how to beat the house, and thus slip you that proverbial ace while showing how to play it most effectively. Credentials? Well, he has won over a million dollars playing Blackjack, been escorted out of casinos over 200 times, sometimes in handcuffs and is the author of three books on playing to win. So let him slip that ace up your sleeve and set you up to be a winner. Enjoy wine and taste-tempting appetizers before the presentation and jackpot-hitting deserts and coffee after the discussion. Deal the cards, Vegas, we’re on our way! For this event, $12.50 per person may be deductible for Federal Income Tax purposes.
