Hope Clinic’s first Casino Night is being called success by one of the group’s leaders.

Don Goetz, chairman of Hope Clinic’s board of directors, said the event at the Community Health Systems Activities Center in downtown Jasper Saturday night will be the biggest single fundraiser the group has held. Hope Clinic officials hoped to raise around $20,000 through the event.

“We don’t have the final numbers yet, but we feel like it was a great success, especially considering it was the first time we have held this kind of event,” he said.

Goetz said estimated attendance for Saturday’s Casino Night was between 350 to 400 people.

“There were a lot of people who came,” he said. “I didn’t hear any negative comments. I believe everyone had a great time.”

Goetz added that he feels Hope Clinic will want to make the Casino Night an annual fundraiser.
