Casino Royale at the Ritz

 Casino Royale at the Ritz

will be held on

Saturday, March 9, 2019

at Pine Grove Country Club

Casino Royale at the Ritz is the Dickinson Area Chamber of Commerce’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 plenty of prizes.  In 2018, there were 2 special gun raffles as well as jewelry raffles from Erickson Jewelers, Grayson Jewlers and Kingsley North Custom Jewelry.

With a ticket purchase, each guest receives a spectacular sit down dinner, $100 in Fun Money to spend at the gaming tables and a chance to win the grand prize!  In 2018, the Grand Prize was a 55″ 4K Hisense Smart TV and LG Sound Bar. In addition, last year $3,000 was 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. Together with our scholarship underwriters, we are also able to support education with scholarships to Bay College’s West Campus in Iron Mountain.  Additionally, this fundraiser has also allowed for us to not increase membership dues for the past 13 years.
