Valley Creek School Casino Fundraising

The Valley Creek School Cooperating Society (Parent Council) has received our next Casino dates and we need at least 40 volunteers (day and night shifts) to fulfill our volunteer obligations. Sign-up Genius is being used for this fundraising event. Please click the link: Valley Creek Casino 2023 for available position slots and to sign up.

This is where you can make a difference!

The revenue generated by this casino enables our Parent Council to enhance the student learning experience at Valley Creek School. The last two casinos each brought just over $67,000 to our school. The funds we raise from this casino will help to purchase technology for the school that we are in badly need of - new laptops and workstations. This past year we were able to invest in various physical education equipment, including our brand new ping pong tables! We hope to provide more of this support over the next couple of years.

Without enough volunteers for these dates, we will be unable to hold the Casino and we could lose our spot in the Alberta Gaming rotation.  This means that no future fundraising will bring in this large amount of money into the school in such a short period of time. 


NOTE: Casino experience is not required!  Casino advisers are there to assist us each shift.

The following positions will need to be filled over November 25th and 26th: General Manager, Banker, Cashier, Chip Runner, Count Room Supervisor and Count Room staff. Two back up slots have been added for each shift. 


The shifts available are as follows:

  • Day Shift 11:00am – 7:30pm
  • Night Shift 6:45pm - 3:30am
  • Count Room Shift 11:15pm – 3:30am

Please sign up by September 1st, 2023 as all documentation needs to be submitted to AGLC 60 days prior to our casino dates. Be sure of your commitment, as it is very difficult to find replacements.
