Casino Royale at the Ritz is the Dickinson Area Chamber Alliance’s annual fundraiser held each spring at Pine Grove Country Club. The Ritz is an upscale event with the opportunity to win prizes and gamble on various tables with Best Bet Casino Parties. Guests enjoy an evening filled with food and fun as well as exciting live and silent auction items. In 2017, there were special gun raffles as well as jewelry raffles from Erickson Jewelers and Kingsley North Custom Jewelry. Evening attire is requested, but not required.
With your ticket purchase, you will receive a spectacular sit down dinner, $100 in Fun Money to spend at the Gaming tables and a chance to win the grand prize: a 55″ 4K Sharp Smart TV as well as other prizes. In addition, $3,00 will be given away in COLD HARD CASH!
Proceeds from this event are used to manage member benefits and develop new programs and materials to further our mission to enhance the quality of life in our community by supporting and promoting economic growth. This fund raiser has also allowed for us to not increase membership dues for the past 12 years
