This is the season of Prom’s and Project Graduation’s for Vegas Concepts and we wanted to share how meaningful these events are. Project Graduation first began in Maine around 20 years after a terrible accident that impacted a small community. 18 teenagers died in an alcohol related highway crash. In an effort to prevent this accident from happening in the future, parents and school officials decided to create a an event called “Project Graduation” or “Project Celebration.”
This event would offer the graduating seniors a space where they could celebrate with their friends in an alcohol/drug free environment. Eventually it caught on in Texas. Most high schools in Dallas and Fort Worth now have these types of events!
Typically, PTA or PTSA sell tickets in advance for a High School Theme event with a Las Vegas-style evening of games specializing in this type of event. “Our professional staff will insist in teaching students on the game.” When working with High school students there is a Texas law all staff members are background checked and will submit to Breathalyzer testing.

How to host a Casino Night Fundraiser
Hosting a Casino night can be a great fundraising idea. You can bring in people from all walks of life. People also enjoy competing and mostly importantly, winning. Therefore, donors might be more willing to donate money in a casino setting because they are having fun, want to win big and they know its going towards a good cause. Here are a few things to keep in mind when planning your next Casino Night Fundraiser.
Set your goal: You know you want to make money but you need to have a number in mind. As easy as it sounds, remember to maximize your revenue and minimize your expenses. You don’t want to spend too much money in the actual event to where you’re losing money.
Proms, Project Graduations and Lock-ins are usually memorable highlights of a student’s high school years. These events allow students to spend time with their friends before they start the next chapter in their life after graduation. Students are stressing out about what they are going to wear or with whom they are going to go with in the days leading up to their high school party. On the other hand, the parents of these students are the ones stressing out about the PLANNING of the event. Debbie Accettura, Owner of Vegas Concepts, is no newbie in the industry.
