Inaugural ‘Double Down for Devereux’ event raises more than $7,000 for New Jersey

 


More than 100 guests attended Devereux N.J.’s “Double Down for Devereux” event. The organization raised more than $7,000; proceeds will benefit more than 500 individuals living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences across the Garden State.

It was a sure bet that the more than 100 guests who turned out for Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health New Jersey’s first-ever “Double Down for Devereux” event experienced an unforgettable night of casino-style games, food and fun.

Thanks to the generosity both of sponsors and attendees, Devereux New Jersey raised more than $7,000, far exceeding its goal of $5,000. Proceeds from the event will directly benefit the lives of more than 500 children, adolescents and adults living with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences across the Garden State.

“Our inaugural Double Down for Devereux event was a huge success,” said Devereux New Jersey Executive Director Brian Hancock. “I want to thank our supporters for helping us continue to provide a wide range of programs and services that empower the individuals in our care – including those with autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities and specialty mental health concerns – to really thrive.”

Place your bets!

Entertainment at the October 6 event, which was held at The Palace in Blackwood, N.J., included casino-style games such as blackjack, craps, roulette, three-card poker and a money wheel. Guests also enjoyed a dinner buffet and an open bar, while a DJ helped create a lively, festive atmosphere. 

At the end of the evening – to sweeten the pot – guests traded in their gambling chips for raffle tickets for a chance to win 20 variously-themed gift baskets or the grand prize of a 65-inch LG TV, which was generously donated by Devereux’s Southern New Jersey Advisory Board.
