Blackjack! Roulette! Craps! What else could you ask for at our second annual Casino Night and Silent Auction benefiting Education and Safety Around the Water? A full house of 115 of our members and guests gambled, bid on auction items, and mingled the night away all for a great cause! The Chapter raised about $15,000 in one special evening. The money raised will go toward swim organizations such as the YMCA’s Safety Around Water Week and the Gift of Swimming, just to mention a few.

Besides our members and guests, we couldn’t have had this much fun without our generous sponsors. They are as follows: Title Sponsor – Baystone Tile; Bar Sponsor – Unicel; Hors d’oeuvre Sponsor – Pentair; DJ Sponsor – Red Rhino Leak Detection; and Table Sponsors – CES, HornerXpress, Pentair, Professional Lines and Zodiac. Thank you for all you do in the pool industry and for the FSPA. It’s appreciated!

Congratulations to the winners Donna Caruso, TC Water Features, in first place and Richard Smith, Superior Solar, in second.
