The Summer fundraiser for WHBPAC was a fun filled night of shameless gambling on Friday evening July 22nd. No stone was left unturned to assure patrons dressed in their chicest white outfits enjoyed every moment of the evening under an air conditioned tent on the Great Lawn at Westhampton Beach. The event featured Blackjack, Roulette, and various poker games along with shooting Craps and Slot Machines. “Dinner in Bites” was provided by Stone Creek Inn, the Braun Seafood Raw Bar and Sushi 1 along with an open bar, and dancing with a terrific DJ on the dance floor.

Professional Croupiers were on hand to ensure all games are played correctly and to assist patrons. In additions there were private poker lessons with 3-time World Series of Poker champion, Matt Matros in the VIP Sponsored Lounge.
