Southampton Students’ Charity Night Hits The Jackpot
Entrepreneurial students from Southampton Solent University hit the jackpot with the success of their charity fundraising night at Genting Club Southampton, staged in aid of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.
The special casino night was the brainchild of a team of eight students, who staged the event as part of their three-year Events Management course and managed to raise more than £1,000.
Student Tom Dainty said: “We wanted to come up with a memorable evening that would raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity while giving people the chance to celebrate in stylish surroundings.
“Genting Club Southampton was an ideal venue, and thanks to the support and creativity of the team, we managed to attract over 140 people to the event, raising more than £1,000 for this worthwhile cause.”
Guests at the charity night enjoyed a sumptuous buffet, champagne reception and a live performance from Soul South.
Genting Club Southampton Gaming Manager and Marketing Advocate Aran Catozzi added: “It’s great to see our entrepreneurs of the future getting to grips with organizing and hosting a major charity event. The students worked really hard and it’s a testament to their efforts that so many people came along to lend their support and generate so much money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.”
